Top comedians set to have Dundalk audiences in stitches

Top comedians set to have Dundalk audiences in stitches

Two renowned comedians are going to perform in Dundalk’s Spirit Store in February.

David O’Doherty will take the stage with his show, Big Time on Friday 2nd and Saturday the 3rd of February to perform to a sold-out crowd. Glenn Wool will grace the stage with his show, Viva Forever, on Thursday the 8th of February at 8pm with tickets still available.

David O’Doherty first debuted at Dublin’s Comedy Cellar in 1998. The following year he went on to win Channel Four’s award for new comedians, “So You Think You’re Funny”. “The Story of the Boy Who Saved Comedy” was his first full show and premiered at The Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2000. He has since performed at this prestigious festival numerous times. He has also appeared on Channel Four’s 8 out of 10 Cats Does Countdown.

He sold out 11 nights in Whealan’s, a record-breaking achievement. He is also an accomplished writer, having written a children’s book, a play featuring live bicycle repairs, and he is currently working on a book about pandas. He has toured all over the globe, from the United States to Melbourne, and has returned to Ireland to grace us with his sharp wit once again. 

Glenn Wool is originally from Canada and has a distinctive style of comedy and is easily recognisable due to his long hair. He moved to London in the late nineties and was successful on the comedy circuit there. He has performed on The John Bishop show on BBC1 two years ago. He has also appeared on other well-known comedy shows such as John Oliver’s New York Stand-Up Show, 8 out of 10 Cats and Russel Howard’s Good News. The Spirit Store says, “behind his homespun humour lies a sharp intelligence which is slowly and quietly hitting the mark on several of the important issues of the day.”
