Today FM’s Dermot & Dave have announced a brand new comedy tour set to hit venues across the country this coming October, including the Black Box Theatre, Galway.
Entitled the ‘Ah Sure Lookit’ tour, Dermot Whelan and Dave Moore debuted their comedy show at the first Cork Comedy Festival in September last year and the following month at the Vodafone Comedy Carnival in Galway. Both shows sold out in record time.
The pair has taken to the stage for a comedy gig but they’re well used to each other, having worked together in radio for over 12 years. Having just finished a 14 date sell out tour across Ireland, the pair are ready for more with a further 15 shows in the autumn.
Asked what people can expect from their stand up show, Dermot Whelan said: “Imagine a bonkers radio show that grows legs and arms and a head and starts firing out craic and waving its arms like an angry King Kong in that movie. Not even close.”
Dave Moore commented: “It’s all our listeners’ favourite characters, stand-up, improvised comedy, music and an interactive gardening segment – what’s not to love?!”
Listeners to The Dermot & Dave Show on Today FM will be familiar with their weekly ‘Ah Sure Lookit’ feature where friend of the show ‘Mac from Carlow’ gives random clues and people are asked to guess what it is Mac is talking about. Although the comedy show has nothing to do with the feature, the lads just like the name!
Dermot & Dave perform at 8pm on Thursday 26 October at Black Box Theatre, Galway as part of Vodafone Comedy Carnival. Ticket are €29 from the Town Hall on 091-569777 or www.tht.ie
