WHAT'S ON REGULAR SHOWS FOOD & DRINK

Leeds-based comedian and social commentator, Micky P Kerr is a breath of fresh air on the live comedy circuit. Fusing together music, spoken word and comedy, with his tongue often planted firmly in his cheek, Kerr has been described as the bastard spawn of John Cooper Clarke.

2015 has seen Micky performing regularly for many of the biggest comedy promoters in the UK, recording a live set for BBC Radio 1, working on a new sitcom about his previous life as a primary school teacher and recording his latest album of music and comedy, entitled Kerr in the Kerrmunity.

Having started his career in Dublin, award winning Irish stand-up comedian and actor Rory O’ Hanlon is a firm favourite at comedy clubs across the UK and Ireland. Described by Chortle as having “presence, poise and timing” and by the Irish Times as having “a joke every 30 seconds”, his rapid fire delivery regularly has audiences crying with laughter.

A regular face on Irish TV, Rory has been seen on RTE’s New Comedy AwardsRepublic of Telly and alongside Des Bishop in Under the Influence. He is also a veteran of stage performing with 7 consecutive solo shows at Edinburgh Fringe, including performing at in The Stand’s ‘Best of Irish’ show, as well as recent appearances at both Glasgow and Cardiff Comedy Festivals. 

Rory is also known internationally, having performed all over the world, from Moscow to Berlin, Monte Carlo to Brussels, and many places in between. 2016 will see Rory heading off to Australia, where he will be performing at the prestigious Perth Comedy Festival.

In addition to performing stand-up, Rory is also a prolific writer, having contributed to the Irish PostChortle and Hot Press magazine, and has recently starred in the short film Spring Clean, which reached the final of the 2013 Virgin Short Film Awards.
