Description

You normal? Acting strange? Mags, in her 50s, Eddie in his 20s, are both black sheep. Eddie is trying to stay woke. Mags just wants a nap. Black Sheep explores the notion that trying to fit in leads to all sorts of trouble. What if you decided that you are OK? We all know a black sheep or maybe we are one. Finding head space and heart space for different. By the end of the show you may embrace the black sheep, with consent, of course. What's normal anyway? Reject your Facebook likes, you're grand.

Eddie and Mags had me snickering throughout their hour-long performance. Using audience members as a springboard for more jokes is such a great idea, because you feel more involved in the performance! From Corkage to Video Games, there's plenty to laugh at. Not to mention its free to enter, what's not to like! Can't wait to see what the pair do next!

Thanks for the laughs guys!

A wonderful show! It’s never too early in the day for these two to tackle a topic! Highly entertaining, witty, and wonderful. Left the show on an absolute buzz!
9/10 Dentists would recommend.

This duo is on fire! With novel/now-film "Pride and Prejudice" as our connective tissue between the two acts, I learnt, I laughed and I spat out coffee from my pursed lips in an attempt not to erupt with joy because the jokes were so funny! Mags and Eddie had me seeing the world in a more compassionate way, whilst I laughed at myself and the complexities of life. I highly recommend going to see this show!

Very diverse comedy. Mags and Eddie are very funny and have their own style. Great comedy about mental health and being an outsider.

Funny guy, funny show, worth a look.

Still sore from laughing! Relatable, real, sometimes a little controversial. These two performers may have totally different styles but are equally as funny and compliment each other so well. I can’t recommend catching this show enough, do yourself a favor!

South Side Advertiser (4/5 stars) 14 days ago

Ireland’s Mags McHugh and Eddie Mullarkey form a motley dichotomous pair who find fantastic humour in their differences and how they each fit into the world. Black Sheep is intimate stand-up which triumphs at making the audience feel as though they are in on the joke.
