The man who was made famous by Fr Ted, Ardal O’Hanlon will be taking to the stage in Castlebar on Friday September 18. O’Hanlon is a founding father of modern Irish stand-up since he helped form Dublin’s Comedy Cellar in 1990. Ardal has a slew of comedy awards (and a BAFTA ) to his name. Thanks to Father Ted, My Hero, and Big Bad World, O’Hanlon is immediately recognisable, but his incredible stand-up talent is perhaps less well known. A million miles from the naive persona of Father Dougal, O’Hanlon’s stand up is dark, sharp, and excruciatingly funny.
