Crowbar Comedy’s last night went down a treat and slammed the Townhouse door shut!

Crowbar Comedy 30th JulyThe Galway Fringe Festival was a smash hit for Crowbar Comedy! The Crowbar Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn) performed to tremendously jovial audiences upstairs in the Townhouse Bar for 2 ½ weeks!!!

The night started off a bit shaky, but in the end the seats were full and the comedy train plowed merrily along.  It took a bit more to get the tired Sunday crowd going, there seemed to be a few sore heads in the audience, but the age-old belief that laughter cures all soreness…? Was proven true… I think that’s a saying anyway? If it’s not it, it is now!

The Crowbar Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn) all hit form. Danny O’Hanlon started the race… Kenny Gaughan cam around the second corner, Connor McDonough-Flynn around the third corner after the break, and Johnny Graham took care of the final stretch… The Galway Races have started today, thus the horse racing references…

The Special Guest on the night was Sean Nolan who had strong set, in his own reserved fashion. He had the audience befuddled and laughing, and ended his set with his trusty guitar… And some introspective poetry…

That’s it for the Crowbar Crew for now… Was an amazing couple of weeks in the Townhouse Bar, fairplay to all the audience members and comedians, every night was an absolute pleasure! Look out for The Crowbar Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn) in the future; the lads are going to continue to make waves in the Irish Comedy Scene.

Was another rip-raging good time at Crowbar Comedy in The Townhouse Bar!!!

Crowbar Comedy CrowdThe Crowbar Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn) all hit flying form and had the audience in stitches laughing.

The show was almost infiltrated by the mad laugher (who will remain unnamed), but after some intense moments, the show went on unfazed, and went swimmingly to say the least.

The Special Guest on the night was John Sheehan and he had a class set about relationship problems, his favorite films, and how old people are keeping up with modern technology…

The line up was strong once again on the evening; the audience was up for a laugh, and laugh they did. I’d imagine they’re still laughing… At something else probably…

Crowbar Comedy’s last show is thus Sunday, the 29th of July, the Special Guest is Sean Nolan, and the lads are going to send the Fringe Festival off with a flurry of laughter. The tickets are a wallet-friendly €3, and the comedy is not to be missed!

Crowbar Comedy Strikes again! Without an empire…

Crowbar Comedy 26th July 2012

Crowbar Comedy in Galway

Was a rip-roaring good time at The Townhouse tonight, the Crowbar Comedy Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn) did themselves and the Galway Fringe Festival proud performing to another packed house of 60+!

The Audience tonight was more than up for it, from the get go they were on the edge of their seats, giving it loads, and laughing like hyenas.

Connor McDonough-Flynn started the night off with a bang… Danny O’Hanlon followed up with a left hook… Then Kenny Gaughan with the right hook… And Johnny Graham finished the night with the knockout punch…

Johnny brought the mad-squealing laugher Owen (a Fringe Volunteer) on stage for his song “Great Little Tractor”, and the audience was left wet with laughter. Owen’s laugh, we’ll call it unique, had been prominent throughout the show and I imagine it’s still haunting the room at this very moment…

The nights Special Guest Danny Dowling flew all the way in from Headford for the gig and had a great set. Talking about his favorite child, smoking wacky, and dealing with monsters, it was a very enjoyable set.

All the performers on the night played an absolute blinder, it was a class night of comedy.

Crowbar Comedy is back on Friday the 27th of July, with Special Guest John Sheehan, the tickets are a budget friendly €3; it’s a show not to be missed!

Crowbar Comedy continues to keep the Townhouse laughing away!

Was another comedy packed week at The Townhouse Bar on Quay Lane in Galway! The comedy scene proves to be potent during the Galway Fringe Festival.

This week Crowbar Comedy had 3-shows: Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. And there’s 3-more on the same days this week!!!

Wednesday was packed out with ‘turistas’: Spanish, German, American, Hungarian, and plenty of Irish and local Galwegians, a plethora of madness from all over the world. The Special Guest Sean Sheridan had a great set about drugs and football. And the Crowbar Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn) all hit flying form once again; the audience was left with smiles all around.

Friday was another packed out night, 60+ eager comedy enthusiasts crammed into the wallet friendly €3 show for a class line up including the Special Guest Lorna Forde, and the Crowbar Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn). The Crowbar Crew lined em’ up and knocked em’ down with a wide range of material; Danny, Kenny, Johnny and Connor all have unique styles that keep the show interesting and unpredictable. Lorna Forde had an entertaining set about being a mom, and the humorous-mayhem that comes with daily life.

Sunday night clashed with the Macnas Parade, which is an amazing part of the Galway Arts Festival, so after toughing it out in the rain and getting people in, the show started off and was a great success! The audience was up for it and they got it… What ever ‘it’ is… ‘It’ Sunday night was great comedy. The Crowbar Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn) once again all hit the comedy nerve of the crowd and got the laughs flowing. Cian Mc, the Special Guest, had a first-class set, joking about whiskey consumption, unpopular teenage years and how his mobile is messing with his self-esteem. All the lads played a blinder on the night and the crowd left satisfied…

Crowbar Comedy is part of the Galway Fringe Festival and it’s on this week the 25th, 27th and 29th of July, tickets are a wallet-friendly €3, it’s a show not to be missed!!!
