Bray People - - NEWS -

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.

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.
