An Irish Solution to an Irish Problem

After a sell out run at last year’s Fringe, Eddie Mullarkey is back with a new show chronicling his post covid recovery process: adopting a rescue dog, getting diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (by a non professional), and avoiding his overbearing mother.

The show involves a mix of story telling, observational comedy and crowd interaction. Expect to be part of the comedy!

This year we have two entry methods: Free & Unticketed or Pay What You Can
Free & Unticketed: Entry to a show is first-come, first served at the venue - just turn up and then donate to the show in the collection at the end.
Pay What You Can: For these shows you can book a ticket to guarantee entry and choose your price from the Fringe Box Office, up to 30 mins before a show. After that all remaining space is free at the venue on a first-come, first-served bases. Donations for walk-ins at the end of the show.

News and Reviews for this Show

I can guarantee that the audience were able to focus on this show, during which Eddie Mullarkey creates a cohesive set where pretty much everything links back to him being Irish or being diagnosed with ADD. It is all conveyed through the telling of various humorous tales – some of them pretty dark – with tangible punchlines. A majority of the jokes do deal in stereotypes, which does get repetitive, though the stories and topics flow neatly and quickly, meaning I was never bored. The comedian’s interaction with the crowd creates the stand-out moments, as it showcases his improv skills, and also makes the set feel more tailored to the audience. Mullarkey certainly knows how to work a crowd and I was part of one that was chuckling throughout. Click Here For Review
