David McSavage is one of Ireland’s most popular comedians. His cutting commentary and performances cover all aspects of life, and nothing is safe from his truth induced interpretations.
From The Barman (Mick The Bull ) to Father Finnegan, to former president Mary Robinson and Pat Kenny, audiences relate to each character from the many aspects of Irish life.
A regular guest on TV and radio shows in Ireland, McSavage has also appeared at all the major comedy festivals, including the Edinburgh Festival, and internationally in Australia, Germany, Japan, and Scandinavia. As an actor, he featured in the film Calvary by John Michael McDonagh starring Brendan Gleeson.
McSavage is a divisive but enthralling figure both inside and outside comedy circles. Mario Rosenstock recently said of him: "He makes me jealous sometimes because he kind of goes to areas that, in a sense, I am forbidden from going to. He says an awful lot of things that I would love to say and can’t. He takes an awful lot of risks."
McSavage will play the Roisin on August 22 at 9pm. Tickets cost €12.50 (€10 members ). Tickets are available at www.roisindubh.net, the Ticket Desk at OMG Zhivago, Shop Street, and The Róisín Dubh.
