One to watch for 2017, James Moran will be wrapping up 2016 with the first Dublin performance of his first full-length show RAFFLE this Thursday December 15th.
It’s not often we highlight a single show in a bar for €5 but this show is fresh and different. Upstairs in Dublin’s Lord Edward Inn at Christ Church expect an evening of comedy complete with prizes! And all performed by a young Irish comedy storyteller who has plans and ambitions to go places.
Débuted at the TULCA Visual Arts Festival in Galway, RAFFLE!! crosses the boundaries of art, craft, comedy and theatre and brings the audience on a somewhat bizarre rollick through the canon of Irish history, Gaelic storytelling and, maybe regretfully, the host’s dream journal.
With appearances from Eamonn DeValera, Maud Gonne, Padraig Ó Siochfhradha’s Jimeen, Barack Obama, Angela Merkel and the Devil Himself, and prizes galore to be won, RAFFLE!! is set to be a transcendental and surreal showcase of the young performer’s work. Not to be missed!

I know James’s work really well and to be honest I think he’s a bit of a genius.
