The Handyman

written & performed by Seamus O’Rourke

Saturday, 29th January 2022

Doors: 5.30pm | Show: 6.30pm | No Interval

 

Hugh Spotten is the local Handyman. He is about to receive an award for his contribution to the community… but all is not what it seems in a small town, falling in on itself. Seamus O’Rourke explores friendship, relationships and how best to get noticed on your last day. The Handyman is hilariously funny, yet a poignant poetic look at small-town life in rural Ireland.

Seamus O’Rourke is an award-winning writer, director and actor from County Leitrim. He tours Ireland regularly with his own self-penned shows. Seamus has over two million hits on YouTube and Social Media with his collection of short stories, recitations and sketches.

Danny O’ Brien: The God Of All Things Bad

(Support Act tba)

Saturday, 9th April

Doors: 7.00pm | Show: 8.00pm | Bar Service

 

After a complete sell-out run with his show ‘Reformer’ in early 2020 in Claremorris Town Hall Theatre and nationwide – O’ Brien is back in Mayo with his biggest solo show to date!

The award-winning Irish comedian has stayed even busier 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 council flats during the first lockdown!) To somehow spending 3 months stranded in Central America. Along the way, he starred in a viral Spanish 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.
