ARMAGH NATIVE Micky Bartlett is a comedian on the up, with a career gathering serious momentum through his critically acclaimed stand-up shows, as well as his appearances on BBC NI’s Monumental.
Galway will see why when the Lurgan man plays the Comedy KARLnival at the Róisín Dubh on Tuesday June 18 at 8pm. Chortle.co.uk has called Bartlett, a "stand-up natural with a great command of the audience and engaging everyman approach...A masterful way of delivering with punch and style".
Bartlett's start in comedy came when he tried an open-mic spot in his final university year, while studying for a BA in drama and theatre Studies. One course examined comedians such as Billy Connolly, with the final assessment being a performance. This was all the push he needed to try stand-up comedy.
