Banana Cabaret this weekend : John Moloney, Mary Bourke, Ryan McDonnell & Guest

Terrific weekend of comedy ahead – featuring the immortal John Moloney, Mary Bourke, Ryan McDonnell and guest TBA (in the Theatre Friday and upstairs in the Ballroom Saturday night due to Rugby)

John Moloney has been a professional comedian for over twenty years – and headlines at all the major Comedy Clubs around the world.

John has TWICE won ‘Best Live Performer’ at The London Comedy Festival, and was nominated as ‘Best Live Stand-Up’ at The British Comedy Awards. John Moloney is a world-travelled comedian, who has delighted thousands at Festivals, Theatres, and Clubs. From Melbourne to Edinburgh, from the prestigious Just For Laughs and Halifax Festivals in Canada to The Liffey Laughs in Dublin – John has been recognized as a true multi-award-winning comic talent.

John was also delighted to be included in Channel 4’s World Top 100 Stand-Ups.

“A wondrous array of classy gags. Comedy scholars, plus folk needing a right good laugh, can choose from a wide range of quality Moloney originals. Take your pick from droll one-liners; coruscating bits of political satire, absurdist observations; gleeful schoolboy puns and observant re-interpretations of everyday phenomena. In addition, they’re all delivered with a measured dryness and quiet understatement, too. Masterly.”

“He looks every bit the professional. He is. He treats the audience with compassion, tact and intelligence in a performance that has strolling one-liners and hilarious stories.”

Mary Bourke has an uncanny ability to switch from being compellingly serious, to downright filthy in the same sentence. Having recently toured her smash Suffragette show, catch her at the Banana this weekend
