Top Irish stand-up, Neil Delamere has announced details of his brand new tour - Handstand - which is coming to the Radisson Blu Hotel, Athlone, on February 16, 2017.
Audiences can expect the usual banter and quick-witted, well-observed comedy at Handstand as they have come to expect from Delamere, who has been described by critics as “a master” (The Scotsman ) and “a wryly brilliant live performer” (Sunday Times ).
The star of RTÉ’s The Panel, 2nd Republic, BBC’s The Blame Game, Fighting Talk and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow is renowned for delivering powerhouse, sell-out performances, whether it is at Dublin’s Vicar Street, or further afield at high-profile international festivals such as the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival.
An accomplished broadcaster as well as comic, Neil is the host of his own hugely-popular two-hour weekend show on Today FM, Neil Delamere’s Sunday Best. Neil made a welcome return to TV screens this autumn in the ever-popular panel show, The Blame Game on BBC, which will celebrate a decade on TV screens with its first episode filmed at Waterfront Hall.
A popular face on television, Neil last year hosted Eureka! a 10-part science-based show for RTÉ that delved into those moments, theories, and discoveries that advanced science. He also wrote and presented the IFTA and Celtic Media award-winning historical documentaries on the Vikings and St Patrick - The Only Viking In the Village and There’s Something About Patrick, as well as the acclaimed RTÉ comedy documentary series on Irish historical figures, Holding Out For A Hero.
