Live At The Chapel: Ardal O'Hanlon, Nina Conti, Bridget Christie, Mike Wozniak, Jarred Christmas
Please note that the artists appearing may be subject to change.
This event takes place at Union Chapel, which has achieved Bronze Status for disabled access from Attitude Is Everything.
Although best known for his starring roles in the sitcoms, Father Ted (for which he won a British Comedy Award and a BAFTA nomination) and My Hero, Ardal's other TV comedy dramas include Big Bad World, Blessed, Skins and Dr Who. He has appeared on his own Dave's One Night Stand and more recently on Live At The Apollo and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow. Ardal has even found the time to write a book, his best-selling novel Talk Of The Town features in the book '1001 Books to Read Before You Die'.
However, it is as a stand-up comedian where Ardal's true vocation lies. He sees his role in life as 'highlighting the ridiculous'. Avoiding the overly crass and the obvious, his only interest is the truth - if there is such a thing...
'Displays a proficiency of delivery which puts him well ahead of the pack. He is a complete joy to watch, planting the sort of silly images that bump around in your head forever' (The Guardian)
'... skilfully handled running jokes, his manipulation of a capacity crowd is just as impressive... sharp and genial observation. O’Hanlon is certainly a comedian to be reckoned with' (The Daily Telegraph)
'If you love comedy and smart talking – and only go to see one comedy show, make it O'Hanlon' (Daily Express).
