Description

Known in his native Ireland from popular comedy shows Republic of Telly and Hardy Bucks, Kevin McGahern brings his particular brand of nonsense to the Edinburgh Fringe for the first time. Mixing traditional stand-up with character-based comedy, Kevin's laid-back, straight-faced delivery elevates the absurdity of his subject matter in his own entirely unique way. If you're a fan of cheerily optimistic doomsday plans, absurdly horrible characters, robophobia, and smart silliness, then this show is for you. 'Sharply written, brilliantly performed' (Totally Dublin). 'Gas bastard' (Rubberbandits). 'Made me laugh out loud' (Charlie Brooker).
