_ Main Venue _

After total sell out shows in 2015/2016 in Whelans and fresh off the back of a hugely successful month long run with rave reviews at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival- Danny O’ Brien returns with his most adventurous and unique solo show to date! After inheriting a broken-down, unreliable, older-than-he-is motorcycle, Danny decided to take to the road on a comedic expedition all over Ireland, over the water to Scotland and back again. Come hear the story of this ‘RaconTour’ – in all its glory, failures, and triumphs alike!

“O’Brien took to the stage like a force of nature… one suspects it won’t be too much longer before stadiums come calling.” Irish Examiner ★★★★★


A regular on Irish TV and radio, Danny has also featured on The Comedy Channel’s “Brexit at Tiffany’s”. He is also provided tour support for Today Fm’s Dermot & Dave’s sell-out “AH sure look it” nationwide tour as well as performing at:

The Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy Festival
Latitude Comedy Festival (UK)
BugJam Festival (UK)
Electric Picnic
Longitude Festival

The Vodafone Comedy Festival
Ravlóid (Irish speaking) Festival
The Vodafone Comedy Carnival
Body & Soul Festival

As well as a host of International shows in Berlin, Barcelona, Brussels, Gothenburg, Malmö, Amsterdam, Oslo, Copenhagen,Stockholm, Bangkok, Jakarta, Singapore and LA.

“O’Brien is genuinely, uproariously funny with a huge stage presence and wicked timing… He looks set to be one of the breakout comedy stars of 2017.” The Sunday Independent

“A perfect mixture of brains, banter and brilliance” Great Scott ★★★★
