Comedian Bernard O’Shea features at The Source Arts Centre in Thurles on Friday, November 15th.

He’s always on the telly. He co-presented the New Comedy Awards with Jennifer Maguire. He also did some stand up on The Liffey Laughs and Just for Laughs on RTÉ back in the noughties. And now, fresh from weekly humiliation on RTÉ’s Republic of Telly, Bernard O’Shea is bringing his unique brand of bizzare and hysterical stand-up comedy to The Source Arts Centre in Thurles.

Bernard O’Shea has been described as a fizzing, iridescent ball of sheer energy, a fast talking, fast thinking comedian who invigorates a room with his presence. Left-field and imaginative but never up its rear Bernard’s free-wheeling comedy is endlessly delightful with some fabulous impromptu raging that reminds you just how extraordinary stand-up can be while his dry witty songs bookend his show nicely.

Bernard O’Shea is one of a kind and quite possibly nuts, but one of a kind nonetheless.

A night of unpredictable laugh-out-loud comedy from the latest phenomenon on the Irish comedy circuit is guaranteed.

Comedian Bernard O’Shea features at The Source Arts Centre in Thurles on Friday, November 15th. Tickets are priced at €15 (€12 concession) and bookings can be made by calling the box office on 0504 90204 or by visiting thesourceartscentre.ie.

Thurles Drama Group

Thurles Drama Group present Conor McPherson’s The Weir from Monday, November 4th to Saturday, November 9th at The Source Arts Centre (8pm nightly) - €15 (€10 concession).

Night time in a country pub and Brendan is opening for business. Jack and Jim are two regulars. Finbarr, a local auctioneer, arrives to introduce new tenant Valerie to everyone. Each is keen to inform Valerie of stories to match the dark wintry night. To their surprise Valerie also has a tale to tell. In this tight script, Conor McPherson - author of The Seafarer - provides fun, atmosphere and a thought-provoking play which critics have highly acclaimed. The Weir won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New play in 1999.

Tickets for the Monday night performance are €20 and are in aid of a local charity. These tickets are only available through the box office or via Thurles Drama Group.
