Stand-up star Ardal is Rosehill bound
Published at 13:17, Thursday, 24 January 2013
ONE of the UK’s best-loved comedians will perform at Rosehill Theatre, Whitehaven, as part of a major national tour.
Ardal O’Hanlon, who is perhaps best known for his role as the bewildered priest Dougal in classic sitcom Father Ted, will take to the stage on Thursday, September 19 (8pm).
Ardal’s style is observational, the subject matter is life itself and the default expression is one of utter disbelief!
Lurking beneath Ardal’s mild-mannered demeanour resides a sharp, probing and fairly mild-mannered comic brain.
Sometimes thoughtful, sometimes silly, but always punchy, he has tickled audiences all over the world. In a comprehensive set, he talks about not just the things that matter – but also about the things that don’t.
Although best known for his starring roles in sitcoms Father Ted – for which he won a British Comedy Award and a BAFTA nomination – and as Thermoman in My Hero, Ardal’s other TV comedy dramas include Big Bad World, Blessed, Skins and Dr Who.
He has also appeared on his own Dave’s One Night Stand and more recently on Live At The Apollo and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow. Ardal has even found the time to write a book, his best-selling novel Talk of the Town, which features in the list of 1001 Books to Read Before You Die.
However, it is as a stand-up comedian where Ardal’s true vocation lies. He sees his role in life a highlighting the ridiculous; avoiding the overly crass and obvious, he says his only interest is the truth... if there is such a thing!
