'The Bald Ambition' at Backstage Theatre Longford

Top Irish stand-up Colin Murphy will bring his 'The Bald Ambition Tour' to Backstage Theatre, Longford on Friday, December 7.

This tour – Murphy’s first in eight years – comes as the Downpatrick funnyman turns 50 and celebrates 25 years as a stand-up comic. '1993 - when avocado was the colour of a toilet, not a breakfast'.

Well-known to TV audiences for his role as resident panellist on The Blame Game, BBC Northern Ireland’s topical news and current affairs panel show, expect Murphy to bring hilarity to the humdrum in The Bald Ambition Tour, which covers such diverse topics as Conor McGregor, 21st century sex, being pitied by the homeless and Brexit, amongst others.

The Guardian has described him as “distinguishably good… delivering pin-sharp observations in the form of shared confidences.”

Colin has performed at all the top comedy festivals, including the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Melbourne Comedy Festival, Just for Laughs and, closer to home, the Cat Laughs comedy festival. He is a regular host of the comedy show in The Empire Bar, Belfast.
