PADDY COURT­NEY Vicar Street, Dublin Sat 123 0818-719390

Re­cently seen in TG4’s Pad­dy­whack­ery com­edy drama – a satire about all the large grants avail­able in the coun­try for do­ing things through the Ir­ish lan­guage, Paddy Court­ney (be­low) is one of the most ver­sa­tile and en­ter­tain­ing comics on the cir­cuit. Typ­i­cally us­ing a high-en­ergy approach, he wan­ders over a variety of sub­jects to good comic ef­fect, re­ly­ing on the strength of his de­liv­ery and his en­thu­si­as­tic stage pres­ence. It’s high­ve­loc­ity stuff; the ma­te­rial comes thick and fast, and with his nat­u­ral per­for­mance skills, Court­ney al­ways guar­an­tees a good show.
