Dara O’Briain returns for one night only at The Royal Theatre Castlebar on Thursday February 23 2012. After selling out two shows in Castlebar last year ‘O Briain takes to the stage in February with tickets on sale from today.
Dara O’Briain is the biggest Irish comic to have emerged in recent years. Dara has now moved from being a sold-out festival favourite in Edinburgh to selling out theatres across the UK and mainstream television success including hosting popular TV shows such as Mock the Week, of which he has just finished filming the 10th series and another one is scheduled for autumn. He has also been hosting The Apprentice: You're Fired! on BBC 2 and this finishes this week. In addition he has filmed Three Men go to Venice with Griff Rhys Jones and Rory Mc Grath which went out on BBC recently and is the fifth series they have done together.
The basis for his success is Dara’s premier place at top of the stand-up circuit. Winner of the Chortle award for Best Headline Act in both 2003 and 2004, Dara has performed all over the world, from Dublin to Shanghai, and at all the major festivals from Melbourne to Montreal.
