Paddy Cullivan's Solutionism to Ireland's woes

Wed, Oct 07, 2015

Paddy Cullivan.

PADDY CULLIVAN is a musician and satirist, well known from The Late Late Show and The Camembert Quartet, Callan's Kicks, and Joe Duffy's Funny Friday, but he's bringing his comedic skills to look at the state of Irish politics, economy, and culture, in his new show Solutionism.

A veteran of the Kilkenomics festival and the Leviathan Political Cabaret, Paddy, originally from Galway, debuts Solutionism at the Nun's Island Theatre this evening at 8pm. Here, Paddy will put forward 50 solutions in 90 minutes, using imagery, satire, historical and aesthetic insight, and songs (including 'Turning The Corner' with which the show starts, see below), proposing a 'third way' to dominant right-wing and left-wing viewpoints.
