FUNNY MAN Ger Staunton has been packing out venues across the land.
Stand-up comedian, Castlebar man Ger Staunton is returning to Mayo for a special Valentine’s Night show at the Claremorris Town Hall Theatre on Friday night, February 14, at 8pm.
Only a few weeks after selling out his 2019 show ‘Friend of your Dad’ in the Linenhall Theatre, Castlebar, this Claremorris debut will be a hybrid of his 2017 and 2018 Edinburgh Fringe Festival solo shows. Last year this show sold out in Dublin, Galway, Belfast, Wexford and Castlebar.
Reviewing one of Staunton’s shows earlier this month, The Sunday Independent dubbed the comedian ‘a rising star who has creased sides in the UK, US and mainland Europe’. “The Castlebar native creates a tempo all of his own,” said the reviewer, “unpacking his deadpan, immaculately woven anecdotal riffs with a smooth pace and a dark twinkle that has no qualms about upsetting safe sensibilities (as all comedians should).”
