Roscommon Arts Centre presents two fantastic nights of entertainment in the one week with Michael Harding taking to the stage on Wednesday 9th November and Conal Gallen bringing his show Only Joking to the stage on Saturday 12th November.
Michael Harding is one of Ireland’s most distinctive writers and storytellers and his recent memoirs Staring at Lakes and Hanging with the Elephant have touched a chord with audiences throughout the country. Following on from a sell-out performance last year, he returns to Roscommon Arts Centre with his latest book, Talking to Strangers and to ruminate on his life over the past 18 months, playing the Bull McCabe on stage in Dublin, struggling with self-doubt, faith, and psychotherapy, and the chaos of building an extension to his home near Lough Allen. Talking to Strangers is a book about growing old, about the stories we share with others, and the stories we leave behind us. His engaging style has a way of drawing audiences in. Hilarious yet poignant, homespun yet profound, down-to-earth yet prone to amazing flights of fancy, there’s nothing quite like an evening with Michael Harding.
Comedian, Conal Gallen returns to entertain Roscommon audiences with his hilarious new one man stand up show Only Joking which is packed full of new songs and jokes as well as some fan favourites. Conal’s brand of humour is absolutely hilarious will have his audiences in stitches from start to finish. With over 33 Albums to date Conal has more material than he knows what to do with and is constantly coming up with new material while on the road. Come along and see why he is one of Ireland’s best loved comedians.
Both Michael and Conal’s shows are almost sold out so make sure you don’t miss out. Tickets are available now via the Roscommon Arts Centre Box Office on 09066 25824 or buy online now here.
