Shane Clifford to Perform at dlr Mill Theatre
Called ‘the best comedian in Ireland, hands down’ by Blindboy Boatclub, Shane Clifford is taking his new show ‘Near Shane Experience’ to the dlr Mill Theatre in Dundrum.
After working in retail for ten years, Clifford decided on a whim to upload some silly videos to the internet. Thus the FaceBook sensation ‘Shane’s Brilliant Page’ was born. The videos dealt with issues such as mental health and masculinity through an original, absurd and most of all funny lens. Following accidentally attracting a small but devoted fanbase he decided to give stand up a go.
In the last few years, he has risen quickly performing all over Ireland and appearing at major Irish comedy festivals including Castlepalooza, Cork Comedy Festival and the Vodafone Comedy Festival. In 2018 Clifford was a finalist at the prestigious So You Think You’re Funny? final at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and last October he performed his first solo hour, ‘Shane’s Brilliant Stand Up Show’, to a sold out audience in Whelans, Dublin.
The comedian comes to the dlr Mill Theatre on Saturday, October 5. Tickets cost €10 and are available at www.milltheatre.ie or by calling 012969340.
