The King of Comedy (as named by Channel 4) is returning to Dublin in February 2016 to perform as a team captain on the new RTE radio panel series DON’T QUOTE ME! Hosted by fellow London based comedian Sean Hughes, the show also stars Karl Spain and writer Fiona Looney with very special guests to be announced on January 11th. But book now – before these shows are sold out.
Over 3 nights in early February 2016, Andrew will join Sean, Fiona and Karl plus his star guests exploring and dissecting classic quotes from the world of sports, entertainment, the arts, business, politics and lifestyle. This special live radio recording in The Project Arts Centre is the perfect format for the man from northside Dubliner’s inimitable style. Since beginning stand-up at the age of 18 in Dublin, Andrew has starred in countless TV UK appearances including The Secret Policeman’s Ball, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and been nominated for an if.comedy award, all the while touring the globe with a brilliant and insightful comic view of the state of the world today. This guy is the real deal and emerging as Ireland’s most engaging and politically aware stand up comedian.
It’s been too long since Andrew played here, the last time at the end of March 2015 in Vicar Street. Since then he’s brought comedy to snow covered mountains, made Katie Price starstruck and appeared on Comedy Central UK’s Drunk History. All in one year! Who knows what else 2016 will bring for the man who ALSO co-hosted the alternative rugby World Cup show The Sin Bin on TV3 with Off the Ball presenter Joe Molloy a couple of months back.
Tickets for Don’t Quote Me! will no doubt sell out, so grab them quick at projectartscentire.ie/comedyshowhouse and all 6 shows are being recorded as live for future broadcast on RTE Radio 1.
The series is apart of Comedy Showhouse, Ireland’s first ever festival of radio comedy taking place over 8 days in the Project Arts Centre from Sunday January 31st to Sunday February 7th
