Gig News: Colin Murphy The Bald Ambition Tour

25 years ago a young man had a dream and that dream was to perform.

As an actor success came quickly with the National Youth Theatre and early TV appearances in Yorkshire Television’s Heartbeat and Drop The Dead Donkey for Channel 4. His starring role in Our Friends In The North led to him becoming a household name. Daniel Craig* has achieved everything he set out to do and has reached the very pinnacle of the entertainment industry.

25 years ago another young man had a dream. And hope. And hair. He is still hanging on to all three… just about.

Best known for his TV appearances on the award winning Blame Game, Murphy and O’Kane Do Le Football, The Panel, and The Blizzard of Odd, Colin has performed his stand-up all over the world from Montreal to Melbourne, Beijing to Ballybofey.

*Daniel Craig will not be appearing in this show.


The Bald Ambition Tour kicks off at the start of January with 14 new shows around Ireland.

“The best thing about doing something for long enough, is finding out you were right all along,” he says.

“With this new tour it’s honestly the first time in a long time I’ve been really, really looking forward to getting out on the road.”


He is currently filming the 11th series of the award-winning Blame Game.

“The Blame Game is a joy to do,” he says. “Anyone who has been in the studio audience for a recording knows how much good stuff doesn’t make it into the final edit, mostly due to taste and decency and legal reasons in fairness. In fact that’s mostly the stuff I’ll be doing on the tour.”

Contains adult content, recommended audience age 16 years and over.
