Sunday Funny Sunday is back for Culture Night – Ireland’s best & up and coming acts with fresh material.
Sinéad Walshe is burning up the charts on the comedy scene, an electrifying energy who is wonderfully personable and friendly – its like she’s talking directly to just you! She is host and producer of The Sunday Rollover, Dublin’s premier Brunch gig. Sinéad has opened for Deirdre O’Kane, Neil Delamere, David O’Doherty and Ross Browne, as well as storming the stage at the likes of Ted Fest, Edinburgh Fringe and the Paddy Power Comedy Festival this year. She recently appeared on RTE’s Clear History and FM104.
Ailish McCarthy has been on the comedy scene nearly 3 years but has slowly risen through the ranks on the Irish comedy scene. Some of her videos went viral on TikTok, with one of them being featured in Q102, Extra.ie, Dublin Live and FM104. Ailish’s material is punchy and built up entirely on self deprecation, but endearing enough to draw the audience in. She has gigged in Vancouver, London, Edinburgh and all over Ireland.
@standupshawnuyosa is a Nigerian born Irish citizen who has been performing stand up comedy since he was 17 years old and has since performed in England and all over Ireland including Dublin, Galway and Cork. He was selected to be in the regional showcase for the BBC New Comedy Awards 2021, was a Leinster finalist in a comedy competition for RTE called Stand up and be Funny and won the Best New Act competition at the Bray Comedy Festival in 2020.
Stewart Lambert has been standing up since 2018 and in that time he has been slowly working the Irish and UK comedy circuits. In the two years of stand up before the pandemic that shan’t be named, he hit some impressive milestones from winning audience awards, progressing to the semi finals of So You Think You’re Funny UK to performing at sold out shows and comedy festivals.
Ciaran McMahon runs Sunday Funny Sunday and can be found MCing for the Sunday Funny Sunday comedy show on Culture Night. When he is not MCing, doing stand up in Bantry or Barcelona he is teaching You Talk Funny stand up workshops in Anseo! Comedy for Ciaran is a love affair he has been falling in and out of love with for nearly 20 years… ‘In the beginning they laughed at all my jokes… now they’re laughing at my graduates instead, but I’m not bitter!’
Colm Denham runs Sunday Funny Sunday and started stand up at the end of 15 year career as a chef. He intends for his jokes to be tasty little morsels to be enjoyed by the public. Unfortunately he broke all the health safety rules and now everyone has come down with a bad case of Salmonella. Most of his opinions are based on archaic texts such as Will by Will Smith or Jordan by Katie Price so please forgive him for his antiquated world view.
Padraig Ormsby runs Sunday Funny Sunday and will be joining us again doing his own unique brand of razor sharp gags with super fast delivery… Padraig is a manic depressive, but when he is up he is up! He’ll be talking too much about murder for it not to be an issue and baffles on about his multiple intestinal disorders yeno ‘lowering the standard, for the comedians to shine’. Sympathy laughs are encouraged… but he has somehow managed to win the much coveted audience voted Lucky Duck Award at the battleoftheaxe and the inaugural hapenny bridge inn comedy competition after starting comedy right before the pandemic (yep good timing).
Rob Nother is a talented young Dublin based comic who began stand-up in 2021. one of the up and coming stars of the Irish scene, having been a recent finalist at the Show Me the Funny comedy competition as well as competing in the Chortle student comedy awards. Don’t miss this amazing chance to hate someone for being younger than you! – Rob is one to watch.
and… Patrick McLoughlin… a legend, in his own head, a living incarnation of Rodin’s ‘Thinker’ – deeply studious and insightful. Regularly overcome with intense feelings of smugness Patrick has been consistently pleased with himself for more years than he can care to remember. Desperate to be known for more than theatrical sneezes he took up comedy in 2019 with a two year break for the Great Panini. You be the judge… These days you’re likely to find him wandering listlessly along the Middle Aisle at Lidl.
The show continues at 8.45pm, check out that programme here.
