The Irish Comedy Tour combines the party atmosphere of a Dublin pub with a boisterous, belly-laugh band of hooligans. The witty comedians, whose ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle, are Detroit native Derek Richards; Boston-born Mike McCarthy; Nova Scotia's Damon Leibert; and from Inchicore, a suburb of Dublin, Ireland Derrick Keane.
Derek Richards keeps audiences howling with tales about his mom's dog, the holidays and dating a stripper. He has appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, XM and Sirius, and The Weather Channel's Top 10. 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. 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. His power packed performance adds an incredible dimension to the show. And finally Derrick Keane, originally from Inchicore, first distinguished himself musically when the duo in which he sang and played swept the All Ireland Talent Competition. His band, Inchicore, sets the gold standard for the Irish music scene in New England and across North America.
Together these hilarious Irish American comedians will tear apart - and validate - all of the Irish myths and stereotypes in a rollicking and side-splitting performance.
They're Irish, They're American, &
They're Not Holding Back!
