After a nationwide sell-out tour since the start of 2022 in Ireland, the UK, the US, and Europe - O’Brien is finally back with us at Draíocht with his biggest solo show to date this September!
The award-winning Irish comic has stayed busier than ever over the last 18 months! From making one of the highest viewed stand-up specials in Irish television history - recorded outdoors in a block of Dublin city council flats during the first lockdown! To somehow spending 3 months stranded in Central America. Along the way, he starred in a viral Spanish-speaking comedy sketch video in Costa Rica (a language he still hasn’t been able to learn and definitely still can’t speak!) amongst other things.
This show follows his ridiculous journey over land and water to meet the highly worshipped Mayan deity that is ‘Maximón’ in Guatemala ... and gives this show its name!
He also now has a dog daughter and trust issues with drinking water and Zoom.
* WARNING: This show contains strong descriptions of psychedelic drug misuse, parasites, and goat milking!
"O’Brien is genuinely, uproariously funny with a huge stage presence and wicked timing!"- The Sunday Independent
"He took to the stage like a force of nature ... one suspects it won’t be too much longer before stadiums come calling."- The Examiner
