One-man show to add comedic touch
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.
