Description

Aged just 17, Brian forged his mother's signature, borrowed €10k and ran away to New Zealand. In a melting pot of races, religions and cultures, his openness, curiosity and naivety nearly got him killed more than once over the next year! Drug busts, Biker gangs, Iraqi refugees, the UVF, a Thai gambling syndicate, Israeli Intelligence, a polygamous cult and a porn star named Desire! This show is about race, religion, nationality and identity in a chaos-filled year of discovery. 'The big stage beckons' (City Limits).

Gallagher is charming and finds a way to work serious issues into his jokes while still entertaining the crowd. His personality continually shines through his set and makes the audience feel welcome and content throughout.
