Jarlath Regan – Organ Freeman at Vicar Street
Ireland’s cult podcasting hero and funny man off the television, Jarlath Regan, makes his long awaited Vicar Street debut on January 12th, 2018. Join Jarlath as he performs an expertly crafted hour of interlocking stand up and stories about the experience of donating a kidney to his brother, modern family life and the ridiculous complications both things created.
Jarlath left his native Dublin for the streets of London four years ago and hit the ground running. While booking major television appearances on Tonight At The Palladium, Russell Howard’s Good News, Standup Central and tour support for comedy supremos Jack Whitehall and Marc Maron, he has been lauded by the press for his interviewing masterclasses with some of entertainment’s most reclusive characters including Boy George, Gabriel Byrne, Dylan Moran, Hozier, Aidan Gillen and Stewart Lee.
Since moving to London and producing the iTunes award winning, multimillion downloaded podcast, An Irishman Abroad, Jarlath Regan has become one of the most talked about names in comedy. Now he returns to Dublin, one kidney lighter, leaner, older and a little bit wiser. Organ Freeman sees Jarlath wring comic glory out of the chaos of the last 12 months and how being asked to donate a kidney forced him to reassess everything. Known for his ability to spin a yarn while rinsing a subject of every punchline available, Jarlath has become a headliner in every major comedy club in the UK while also selling out two dozen solo shows at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In Organ Freeman his full repertoire is on display.
Jarlath Regan – Organ Freeman truly pulls on a lifetime of experience being selfish, focuses his sincere comedic voice and acclaimed talent for observation in praise of finding the better part of ourselves in order do what’s right regardless of the outcome.
Jarlath Regan – Organ Freeman, Vicar Street, January 12th, 2018. Tickets €25 from usual outlets.
