No laughing matter as Burke to get tattooed on stage
COMEDIAN Adam Burke will be getting a tattoo, on stage, at the next ‘Hardy Har’ comedy night in the Harbour Bar on December 11.
Everyone from Pauline Mclynn (Mrs Doyle) to Dustin the Turkey have made suggestions, including a cup of tea and a saucer, or Eoin McLove’s ‘I’ve no willy’ line in Chinese script.
However, Adam’s Ted themed tatt will be decided by the audience when the show rolls around.
Badger from Atattoed on the Main Street in Bray has agreed to do the honours.
This is the last Hardy Har show of the year with Fr Ted’s own Joe Rooney (Father Damo) headlining on the night.
Joe also starred in Kilinaskully, is a regular Laughter Lounge headliner, is one part of the comedy duo ‘ The Hairy Bowsies’ and is a well respected actor to boot.
‘It’s an honour to welcome him to Hardy Har for his very first time and this guy is not to be missed,’ said Adam.
Adan Strangeman will be a supporting act and Danny O’Brien will host.
Adam will be on stage with a short set from 9 p.m. before the main show and he will begin the process of getting inked as the main show starts at 9.30 p.m.
By the end of the show the audience will get a first glimpse of his new body art and a preview of what to expect in 2015.
Comedian Adam founded the Hardy Har session four years ago.
The resident MC, he is a Bray native with over five years of experience in stand up comedy. Adam is a two time ‘New Comedian of the Year’ finalist and was runner-up in 2010.
