This Lightning Comedy night will be electric!
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.
