Patrick Combs returns to Ireland with his smash hit one-man show Man 1, Bank 0 after an extensive tour of the country in 2011 telling his most fascinating real life story. He will visit ten more venues on his Spring 2012 tour and, luckily, The Source Arts Centre in Thurles is one of them.
This is an amazing-but-true story of how Combs deposited a $95,000 junk-mail cheque into his own bank account and about what happens after his bank cashes the ridiculously large sum of money into his personal bank account.
So, what happens after the bank cashes the enormous cheque?
To name just a few things: angry banking officers threaten Combs with jail time, death and much more and the incident attracts America’s leading authority on banking out of retirement! Outrageously funny and dramatic, the story quickly becomes a staggering David versus Goliath-like real-life adventure.
Not only is Man 1, Bank 0 ninety minutes of nonstop laughter, it’s brilliantly told with no villains or heroes, just someone that everyone can relate to.
Full story in this week’s Tipperary Star.
