Danny O' Brien: Sweet Child O' Brien Live at Coughlan's, Friday November 24th

After a complete sell-out Irish tour last year, multi-award-winning Wicklovian comedian Danny O' Brien is back in the Peoples Republic of Cork with a nostalgia-packed high-energy stand-up show bringing the big laughs to Coughlan's Live

O' Brien has revisited all the simple joys of a late 80s/early 90s childhood (to find the undisputed winner!) and sought to find out if a simpler time was indeed a happier one? This year he has toured all over the world, including a month-long tour all over New Zealand representing Ireland with some TV appearances in the southern hemisphere as well as several International comedy festivals in Asia, Europe, the US, and the UK!

(he also may or may not have accidentally killed two Tamagotchis along the way!)

"Danny O' Brien is one of our favourite comedians, go see him live this year wherever you can!" - Foil, Arms & Hog

“He opened for me at the 3Arena and f*cking murdered it!

Bill Burr

“O’Brien is genuinely, uproariously funny with a huge stage presence and wicked timing”

5 stars - Sunday Independent

"Danny O'Brien absolutely nail's it every show!"

David Cross (Arrested Development)

“O’ Brien took to the stage like a force of suspects it won’t be too much longer before stadiums come calling”

5 stars - The Examiner

"A perfect mix of brains, banter, and brilliance"
