Ten years ago Paddy packed in his job as an accountant to pursue the life of 'a full time fecking eejit', as he says himself. Over the past few years he was Ireland's most sought after MC and 'warm up act' for both T.V. and live gigs, including Podge & Rodge and Keith Barry. He is one of the very few comedians to have written and starred in their own six-part comedy drama, the triple IFTA nominated 'Paddywhackery'. He has been a regular comedy panellist on The Lucy Kennedy Show on RTE2 every Tuesday night during January. He also writes a hilarious column for the Evening Herald HQ supplement every Thursday. Since he sold out his debut solo show in Vicar Street last year, Paddy has been busy tickling audiences at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs Festival, The Carlsberg Comedy Carnival in Dublin's Iveagh Gardens and at the Comedy Tent at Electric Picnic. As well as his high-energy, fun filled comedy show, he promises a bit of skiddledeedee music on the night too. Comedian Paddy Courtney will bring his new stand up show to Vicar Street on Saturday 25th April 2009. Tickets are priced at €23 from ticketmaster.ie and usual outlets.
