SCHENECTADY, NY – The Irish Comedy Tour takes the atmosphere of a Dublin pub and combines it with a boisterous, belly-laugh band of hooligans. Featuring Irish American comedians Derek Richards, Mike McCarthy, Damon Liebert and Derrick Keane this show tears apart as well as validates all of the Irish myths and stereotypes.
Audiences howl at Richards’ tales about his mom’s dog, the holidays and dating a stripper. He has appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, XM and Sirius, and The Weather Channel’s Top 10.
McCarthy’s no-holds-barred humor has landed him on Comedy Central and Showtime. The “comedy barbarian,” as he calls himself, takes no prisoners when it comes to poking fun at society’s most sensitive topics.
Leibert’s unique and energetic style of fiddle playing lies somewhere between the driving dance beat of Cape Breton, and the lyrical music of Ireland. His power-packed performance adds an incredible dimension to the show.
And finally, Keane. Originally from Inchicore, Derrick first distinguished himself musically when the duo in which he sang and played swept the All Ireland Talent Competition. His band, Inchicore, sets the gold standard for the Irish music scene in New England and across North America.
