One-man show to add comedic touch

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - NEWS -

CO­ME­DIAN Tom O’Ma­hony will be kick­ing off his ‘De­fend­ing the Cave­man’ tour with a per­for­mance in the Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre next week.

Rob Becker’s ‘De­fend­ing the Cave­man’, the long­est-run­ning one-man show in Broad­way his­tory, aims to de­mys­tify the dif­fer­ences between the sexes. Us­ing psy­chol­ogy, so­ci­ol­ogy and plain­old ob­ser­va­tional com­edy, the show high­lights the stereo­typ­i­cal and yet undis­put­edly true dif­fer­ences between men and women.

Dur­ing the per­for­mance, Tom O’Ma­hony brings his en­er­getic and bril­liantly funny per­sona to the stage to take the au­di­ence on a unique comedic jour­ney.

When the down­turn took hold, Tom went from a civil en­gi­neer to a job in an in­sur­ance loss ad­just­ing firm and it was there that a col­league tricked him into do­ing a stand-up gig. He was bit­ten by the bug and made the de­ci­sion to go for it as a co­me­dian. Al­though prob­a­bly best known for his role in ‘Damo and Ivor’, he has also starred in the likes of ‘Brid­get & Ea­mon’ and ‘Repub­lic of Telly’.

The show takes place at 8 p.m. on Fri­day, Septem­ber 27. Tick­ets, cost­ing €25, are on sale now at the Mer­maid Arts Cen­tre.
