“I’m Not Special”: July 11th 2015

Connor McDonough-Flynn (@ConMcFlynn) #TakingTheStage on July 11th 2015 to perform his one man show: “I’m Not Special” in Coyotes (@Coyoteslatebar) as part of the Galway Fringe Festival (@GalwayFringe). Doors 18:00.

I’m Not Special” is Connor McDonough-Flynn’s first one man show. “I’m Not Special” is a show that finds Connor letting go of his ego, and accepting the finer points in life. Through laughter, love and humanity he finds himself. It’s humorously hard-hitting and honest. Connor weaves his way through his own psyche and the societal pressures imposed – realizing along the way what’s truly important. This show is about laughing at the countless perspectives of day-to-day life and the hilarity intertwined of the world surrounding.

“…the man with the longest name/craziest eyes in comedy…” – Danny O’Hanlon

DublinCity FM interview with Connor McDonough-Flynn

Recently had the pleasure of talking to Simon Freedman on the Comedy Corner radio show on 103.2 Dublin City FM. Had a great time chatting to Simon, we covered loads of topics, got a few plugs, had a few laughs, all and all an enjoyable experience. Even had an opportunity to plug the new comedy club I am starting on November 8th in The Cellar Bar in Galway, Check out the interview, or should I say give it a listen.



First International Appearance This Thursday

My first International Comedy Club appearance is around the corner, and the painstaking task of shortening one’s set to fit into the confines of 7-minutes is proving to be a harder than anticipated. Shortening my set is something I never enjoy, for having the freedom to go with the flow of the joke and the audience’s response is a luxury that I relish.

However, cuts, snips and alterations will be made; this process could easily become a make over show: “Joke Make Overs” on RTE…? Perhaps too much of a stretch… Too edgy for RTE… I am sure nobody wants to hear about my deliberation on whether or not to include my ‘Shake That Ass’ bit; a seemingly minimal decision, but the joke really does tie the set together… Call in on the night to see my verdict on the ‘Shake That Ass’ bit, live!

I am playing the International Comedy Club this Thursday, the 20th of September, which means I will be away from “Get Up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s” for the evening, but do not fret, the night will be conducted by a more than capable Danny O’ Hanlon.

So if you are in Dublin call into the International Comedy Club, in the International Bar on 23 Wicklow St, Dublin 2, Dublin, Ireland. Doors are at 8:30pm, and tickets are €10/€8.

And if you’re in Galway call into “Get Up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s” in Garvey’s Hotel & Bar in Eyre Square, Galway. Doors are at 9:30pm, and entry is FREE!
