Lots of Laughs? Fat chance! Weight loss? Slim chance!
Irish comedy fans are in for a double dose of laughs with the announcement by top Irish stand-ups Bernard O’Shea and Karl Spain of their first-ever joint tour, Fat Chancers, which comes to Vicar Street on 24th February courtesy of Aiken Promotions.
The pair has also added some spice to the tour and has thrown down the gauntlet to see who is the biggest loser – in weight that is – after challenging each other to a slimming contest over the tour. Expect plenty of references to fasting, snacking and even colonic irrigation.
Commenting on the tour, Karl Spain said “Don’t expect massive weight loss or body transformations or Bernard being funny”. Audiences can expect plenty of on-stage banter as Fat Chancers will feature the popular comics share the stage, as well as performing their own stand-up routines. Bernard is currently starring in RTE Two’s hit comedy Bridget & Eamon. Recognise him in the clip below without his beard?
