Keith Farnan (Michael Mcintyres’ Comedy Roadshow) returns to the Soho Theatre after a Sell Out run at the Edinburgh Festival with his latest show, Money, Money, Money. The show was also adapted as a comedy documentary for Irish Television and broadcast on RTE in December 2011 to great acclaim. Taking a long hard look at our obsession with money, Keith explores Ireland’s brief love affair with vast amounts of money and fiscal meltdown, and presents some cunning plans to repay the €85,000,000,000 Ireland now owes to Europe and the IMF.
In the past year, Keith has toured the major economic hotspots of the world; Switzerland, China, Greece, and obviously Ireland. Most importantly he’ll look at the devastating psychological effects money has had on the Irish psyche as it attempts to take itself, not just out of recession, but out of a depression as well. As we all know, there are no therapists in Ireland, only barmen.
‘If Eddie Izzard had been Irish, he’d surely have turned out a lot like Keith Farnan.’
Time Out Critics’ Choice – London, New York, Hong Kong and Dubai!
‘Both witty and insightful, Farnan combines charm and chutzpah and tells a good yarn his jokes can be sparky and sometimes even edgy, yet he remains gleeful throughout.’
‘A barrage of non-stop banter and jokes… This is a show that showcases Farnan’s rapier wit whilst running the gamut of prejudices that exist in our society.’
‘This is political comedy at its best, perfectly balanced, deadly serious and very funny.’
‘Incisive, brilliant comedy…We should be shouting from the rooftops about him.’
‘Farnan will make you think hard and laugh even harder.’
