Today FM’s lunchtime presenters, Dermot & Dave, have announced a brand new nationwide comedy tour set to hit venues across the country from April.
Entitled the ‘Ah Sure Lookit’ tour, Dermot Whelan and Dave Moore debuted their comedy show at the first Cork Comedy Festival in September last year and the following month at the Vodafone Comedy Carnival in Galway. Both shows sold out in record time. This is the first time the pair has taken to the stage for a comedy gig, but they are well used to each other, having worked together in radio for more than 12 years.
Asked what people can expect from their stand-up show, Dermot Whelan said: “Imagine a bonkers radio show that grows legs and arms and a head and starts firing out craic and waving its arms like an angry King Kong in that movie. Not even close.”
Dave Moore commented: “It’s all our listeners’ favourite characters, stand-up, improvised comedy, music, and an interactive gardening segment – what’s not to love?”
Listeners to The Dermot & Dave Show on Today FM will be familiar with their weekly ‘Ah Sure Lookit’ feature, where friend of the show, ‘Mac from Carlow’, gives random clues and people are asked to guess what it is Mac is talking about. Although the comedy show has nothing to do with the feature, the lads just like the name!
Dermot & Dave’s show hits the Radisson Blu Hotel, Athlone, on Friday, April 7. For tickets visit www.ticketmaster.ie
