Thursday 8th Dec
Alternative Comedy Night
A night of weird and wonky comedy
Nathan Crothers, Conor McGinley, Damn Lovely, Clare Johnston, Una Jackson, Meghan Halpin, Mic Bell & Husk Bennett
Ends 08 December 2022
Join us on Thursday 8th of December for some Alternative comedy delights from Comedians, poets, writers, artists and messers who have been hosted here at our longstanding, experimental arts venue, PS². This is a ticketed event to help support the performers and artists who have organised this night. In these strained times, all money will go to the artists. And of course BYOB so that's a bonus. Doors at 7:30
Ticket sales will be through Eventbrite here.
Here's the line-up...
Conor Mcginley @letsgetsketching and @pigment.space is the Mc for the evening! Conor McGinley’s life is a hurricane of art, kink and taking the piss. Originally from London he has spent over half of his life living in the north of Ireland, his style is blunt and filled with energy.
Husk Bennet - I am preoccupied with my own visceral present, the role of an artist and the turbulent histories of queerness. Questioning the inescapable absurdity of identity, the performativity of existence and exploring how I can examine these ideas within my own output and experiences. It's often an amalgamation of the accidental and the distinct opposite of the accidental.
Damn Lovely is a twoprov act consisting of Laura Conlon and Conleth McVeigh. (Twoprov is like improv but better/worse because there's only two people on stage.) They have performed together for months. Conleth is the brother that Laura never had. Conleth does not feel the same about Laura.Typically, their shows spiral out into a gentle weirdness, akin to a They Might Be Giants song, (but there's no guarantee that this will happen because it's improv).
Clare Johnston's navel-gazing is both comic and tragic in equal measure. Warning: not a comfortable ride.
Nathan Crothers is another white, European, male artist. He comes from along line of people who thought they were funny.
Mic bell will be back in the mix doing poetry,
Meghan Halpin will be talking shit apparently,
And Una Jackson will be doing her first standup gig!
We hope to see you here on the 8th of Dec.
