ARDAL O’HANLON
Comedy
Ireland
the legend who play father dougal mcguire,   Father Ted star, Ardal O’Hanlon is delighted to present his latest stand-up show for 2013. The 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 and probing comic brain. Here, he explores the world within and around him demonstrating why the peddling of jokes was not only his fate, but probably the only sensible way to live life.
