The content of the show is shrouded in mystery but as he says himself…
Support from anyone would be much appreciated. Friends,family even enemies as long as I can get bums on seats.

If that isn’t enough of an incentive for you to pop along there will be performances on the night from comedians Mickey No and Christian Talbot as well.

If you should need anymore details you can find Colm on facebook
It’s been a while since I’ve been to Anseo so I decided as Joe Rooney was headlining, last night was as good as any night to head along to check it out. Imagine my dismay when a couple of hours before the gig I got a message that Joe was not able to make it but that there was to be another headline act in his place, ooh the excitement. Being the determined woman that I am I decided to head along anyway and see what the night would bring!
MC for the evening was Ian Perth. Ian is a very energetic comedian. As an MC he works the room really well and makes sure that the audience are at ease while chatting to them and adding in jokes here and there. Even when he made mistakes such as places people were from, he made it part of his set and created jokes around it, ever the professional.
First up on stage was Tom ‘Bear’ O’Mahony. From his opening jokes Tom had the audience laughing. His tales of Scottish taxi drivers taking his jokes seriously to his descriptions of his school days had the audience giggling along as they relived their childhood. Tom has a very laid back approach on stage which adds to his charm. He does have a problem with people who says “Are ye well?” Though….hmmm I may need to avoid him for a while so!
Edinburgh preview show take one is a mixture of three comedians trying out their material for the Edinburgh Comedy Festival.
Tom “the Bear” O’Mahony takes the audience on a unique comedic journey that truly brings the house down every time he performs. He has gigged alongside Jo Caulfield, PJ Gallagher and Dave McSavage. He is certainly not one to miss!
Derek Ryan is fast becoming a regular face on the Irish comedy scene. He has performed at all the major comedy clubs including the International and the Laughter Lounge. His fantastic stage presence is something you must see first hand.
Lisa Joyce has performed stand up all across Ireland and the UK. Her solo show “Back to School”, featured in the Irish Daily Star, was praised significantly by critics and audiences alike. She may be small but she is has a big personality on stage!
Don’t miss this opportunity to see these great stand up comedians showcasing their talents before heading off to Edinburgh!

On the night is Aidan Killian, regular MC of Anseo, an intelligent comedian whose observations on life are hilarious. Providing support on the night is Trevor Browne who is a magic man with a guitar. You just have to see this man to believe us! Support also comes from Ruthie Phoenix who despite only doing comedy a few months is carving herself a great career with her quirky stage presence! And then of course there is Carol, she has not only appeared in many of the comedy clubs in Dublin but has also appeared on TV shows like The Panel (see below for a clip!)
