This Light­ning Com­edy night will be elec­tric!

Fingal Independent - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

It is the last chance this year for Swords au­di­ences to catch the reg­u­lar com­edy club night at ‘D’parish’ up­stairs in the Lord May­ors.

Light­ning Com­edy has bolted to huge suc­cess at the Lord Mayor’s with the pop­u­lar com­edy night gain­ing a lot of fans this year since it was started by lo­cal ac­tor, play­wright, di­rec­tor and co­me­dian, David Gilna. David is a man with many hats and each one is more cre­ative than the last and his branch­ing out into stand-up com­edy re­sulted in the cre­ation of this reg­u­lar Swords com­edy night which has gone from strength to strength, this year. The next one and last of the year hap­pens on Sun­day, De­cem­ber 2.

The De­cem­ber gig sees the re­turn of favourite lo­cals Al Fo­ran, Mags Mchugh, Stephen Rus­sell and Rob­bie Ford at The Lord May­ors .

With 14 Co­me­di­ans on the night and two very spe­cial head­line acts in Al Fo­ran & John Col­leary it prom­ises to be a night of ri­otous laugh­ter.

Among the co­me­di­ans per­form­ing on the night will be Pauline Shana­han , Fran Win­ston, Jess Collins, Pas­cale , Cathal Shan­ager , Chris O’neill, Gary Lynch, Gordo Bren­nan and Seamus Stack­pool with your lo­cal play­wright David Gilna as MC .

This night is likely to be a see­out and doors open at 7.30pm with the show start­ing at 8pm and tick­ets priced at just €10. David said: ‘I’ll be sell­ing Swords Ex­press Char­ity Cal­en­dars on the night with prof­its from all pro­ceeds will be go­ing to­wards AWARE - All things Cre­ativ­ity & Men­tal Health Aware­ness.’

David is now look­ing for­ward to a busy 2019, with more Light­ning Com­edy and a few other eye-catch­ing cre­ative pur­suits.

He said: ‘I have some big de­vel­op­ments to an­nounce in 2019.

‘I start co-writ­ing with play­wright & screen­writer Frank Allen in 2019 fol­low­ing on from our suc­cess with our award win­ning short film ‘Ya Clown’ a screen­play dec­i­mated to Ir­ish Cir­cus.

‘Big things are also planned for ‘Light­ning Com­edy’ and I start writ­ing my new play in 2019 set in six Ir­ish pubs around the globe.’

David thanked ev­ery­one who sup­ported ‘Light­ning Com­edy’ in 2018.
