COLUM TYRRELL and Sean Finnerty, two of the most talked about and exciting Irish acts on the New York comedy scene, and hosts of an award winning podcast, bring their unique and energetic comedy stylings to the Róisín Dubh on Saturday December 22 at 8pm.
Colum Tyrrell started his career in Dublin and quickly went on to become a finalist at the RTÉ New Comedy Awards and won Show Me The Funny. In 2013 he made his debut at the Galway Comedy Festival supporting Kevin Bridges. He has since played Electric Picnic and The Iveagh Gardens Comedy Festival and supported Jason Byrne, Lee Mack, Steve Hughes, and Andrew Maxwell. He has also appeared on RTÉ’s Republic of Telly and in TV3's The Stand Up. The Scotsman called him "a new Jim Jefferies in the making".
After 21 years "growing up" in Longford, Sean Finnerty moved to the USA where he began his stand-up comedy career. A finalist on Stand Up NBC, he was selected for Comedy Central's Up Next showcase, and hosted season nine of Fireball Run on Amazon Prime. He has opened for WWE hall of famer Mick Foley, and appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe, Electric Picnic, Boston Comedy Fest, and Laugh Your Asheville Off festivals.
