A Celebration of Father Ted with Joe Rooney

November 3 @ 8:00 pm 10:30 pm

Claremorris Town Hall Theatre Presents:

A Celebration of Father Ted


Friday, 3rd November 2023

Doors: 7pm | Show: 8pm | Full Bar…& TEA!

Joe Rooney’s Celebrating Father Ted brings one of Father Ted’s most loved characters Father Damien Lennon (Father Damo) back for a one-off live tour.

We watch the episode The Old Grey Whistle Theft followed by a quiz pitting one side of the audience against the other. Then Joe shares some behind the scenes revelations and parts of Father Ted you might have missed.

After a short break Joe performs his stand up and musical comedy with his guitar, interspersed with A Lovely Girls Competition with three volunteers from the audience. You don’t have to be a girl to enter. Participants will be asked to show their lovely walk, lovely laugh and sandwich making skills. The winner will receive a free whistle although it might have been stolen. The whole audience will compete in the Dancing Priests Competition and the evening will be wrapped up with a singalong rendition of My Lovely Horse.

Afterwards there’ll be a chance to meet Joe Rooney and have a selfie taken. Joe is a renowned stand up comedian who has performed shows at the Edinburgh Fringe as well as shows worldwide from Beijing to Moscow to San Francisco.

Dress the part – there will be prizes for the best dressed Ted Characters!

The intensity he puts into his singing and character acting is on another level. His act rolls along smoothly and nothing felt forced….. an enjoyable romp with songs, great stand-up and excellent storytelling, full of gags.“- Chortle 2019
