Best New Act winner 2018, shortlisted for RTE’s Stand Up and Be Funny 2019 – Seán Begley brings his brand new comedy show to The Whale Theatre, which sold out upon its debut at Bray Comedy Fest 2020.
‘TRAGIC’ hilariously crafts anecdotes revolving around Seán’s embarrassing health issues, nostalgically reminiscing about his grandfather, the challenges of marriage and fatherhood, alongside a number of other pivotal moments in his life.
The show also honestly reflects on the untimely passing of his oldest and closest friend. A beautiful nod to a 30 year relationship, that draws on the many stories from their formative years as well as the aftermath of his death and the process of ultimately reconciling with the decision to move on.
Also featuring local Greystones comedienne, Tara Calihman!
