IRONY?

IronyPQA Venue 3, Riddle’s Court  8:00pm

Davy Mitchell supported by John O’Hare

The inventor of the Segway fell off a cliff while riding on a Segway. Oh the irony. That’s the theme running through Davy Mitchell’s stand-up comedy routine with some support from Galway man John O’Hare.

There were only three people in the audience the night I attended; a young man from Sheffield, a young woman from Switzerland and me – an older man from Belfast. Such a poor turnout on one particular night might have discouraged some performers but Davy and John took the opportunity to engage more fully with their audience.

All humour is relative; some jokes made me cringe, others made me laugh out loud. This pair picked up cues from their audience, improvised accordingly and gave an entertaining performance; despite noise pollution leaking in from a musical production next door.
