The Irish Comedy Tour is a fast-paced, raucous ride across America with four joke-slinging entertainers who know how to party and have a great night. This high energy show takes the party atmosphere of a Dublin pub and combines it with a boisterous, belly-laugh band of hooligans. The comedians, whose ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle, include Detroit native Derek Richards; Boston-born Mike McCarthy; Nova Scotia’s Damon Leibert; and from Inchicore, a suburb of Dublin, Ireland’s Derrick Keane. Don’t miss these hilarious Irish-American comedians as they tear apart, as well as validate, all of the Irish myths and stereotypes.
This seasoned group also recently released a comedy special, The Irish Comedy Tour, streaming on demand via: Amazon Prime, DISH, DirecTV, iTunes, YouTube, Vudu, Vimeo, Google Play, Comcast Xfinity, Microsoft Xbox and Breaker.
The Irish Comedy Tour will be joined by the talents of award winning Irish step dancers, Bridget Farrell, Ashley Gilnack and Dale Loughran from the Farrell School of Irish Dance in New York.
Originally from Inchicore, Derrick first distinguished himself musically when the duo in which he sang and played swept The All Ireland Talent Show. His band, Inchicore, sets the gold standard for the Irish music scene in New England and across North America. He’s shared the stage with greats such as: Willie Nelson, The Wolfe Tones, The Furey Brothers and The Dublin City Ramblers.
Damon Leibert’s unique and energetic style of fiddle playing lies somewhere between the driving dance beat of Cape Breton, and the lyrical music of Ireland. He has performed innumerable concerts and festivals across North America and Europe, and has worked in various theater, film and recording projects.
Mike McCarthy’s no-holds-barred humor has landed him on Comedy Central and Showtime. The “comedy barbarian,” as he calls himself, takes no prisoners when it comes to poking fun at society’s most sensitive topics.
Audiences howl at Richards’ tales about his Irish-Catholic upbringing, divorce and his childfree existence. He has appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, SiriusXM and The Weather Channel’s Top 10.
