Edwin Sammon Vs Cancer

With Andrea Farrell

Fri 31 Mar 2017 8.15PM Draíocht Studio // €14 / €12 conc

Performing stand up for ten years now, Offaly native Edwin Sammon has established himself as one of the most popular comedians in the country. His unpredictable and immensely likeable style saw audiences award him the Tedfest Golden Toilet Duck in 2011 for best comedian and led to him supporting the likes of Jason Byrne, Fred Cooke and Ardal O'Hanlon on their nationwide tours. Edwin has been solidly building new fans at every major festival in the country and comedy clubs across Ireland and the U.K. In 2013 he was part of the sold out nationwide "Lads Of Comedy" tour.

Now gaining more fans in his role as Fr. Gabriel in RTE's popular sitcom "Bridget and Eamon"  and as Co- Presenter on "Republic Of Telly" he is bringing his first stand up special "Edwin Sammon vs Cancer" to Draiocht for one night.
