Description

The Irish Comedy Tour takes the party atmosphere of a Dublin pub and combines it with a boisterous, belly-laugh trio that will perform live on The Hanover Theatre Stage. Come and laugh away the winter blahs!

The clover — make that clever — comedians, whose ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle, include Detroit native Derek Richards; Boston-born Mike McCarthy; and from Dublin, Ireland Keith Aherne.

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.

And finally Aherne, who has performed with many of his home country’s favorite acts, including comedian Brendan Grace and The Dublin City Ramblers, will add authentic Irish music to the show.

The irreverent trio, which just released a DVD titled Dublin’ Over, has performed at venues across the country.
