Unhinged Comedy Story: 8th November 2015


Was an electrically eclectic evening at Unhinged Comedy Club in The Ha’penny Bridge Inn on the 8th of November 2015.
The crowd was from all over and through the woods. We’d English, Irish, French, Chinese, Americans, Canadians – the place was packed with different cultures, views and temperaments.
From 9pm on the club was chalk-full of audience members, and the buzz was palpable throughout and  laugher was eagerly rearing to take flight on the night.
Aidan Greene started the night off with a sound stutter-step getting the audience roaring right off the bat. The Englishman Chris Williams followed with some interesting insights into married life. Marriage was a through-line throughout the night, as there was an abundance of couples – some young, some old – and the space between the loving couples highlighted how long they’d been together. The 4-month couple was right on top of each other, interlocked. While the couple married 25-years sat at opposite ends of the room. Love, is in the air in between.
The second half kicked off with a bang with Padraig Williams talking about different colours in the gangland that is the South Bronx. One must be careful which colours one chooses in certain areas to ensure bodily harm is not introduced on account of the wrong colour.
Sean Nolan hit the stage with his anti-climactic ways and brought the audience in with his sharp wit, tight jokes, and biting turns of phrase.
Mustafa Sead then brought the audience into an Islamic pun-undrum and had the audience laughing in places where they most likely hadn’t before.
Emma Doran rocked the show in the end. Bringing her darkly sarcastic wit and matter of fact delivery to the stage, Emma hit the chords throughout and brought a proper end to what was a fantastic night of comedy.
Unhinged Comedy Club runs every Wednesday and Sunday in The Ha’penny Bridge Inn. Doors are at 21:00. Every night there’s a different line-up of seasoned comedians and up and comers. It’s a show not to be missed.


About ConMcFlynn

Connor McDonough-Flynn first began performing in Los Angeles in 2007. He then moved back to Ireland after a few year hiatus he continued on his journey as a stand up comedian in January 2011. He’s performed in England, Amsterdam, Spain, and all over Ireland. He’s supported such acts as Maeve Higgins and John Colleary.

Connor ran and organized the “Get up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s” comedy night in Garvey’s Bar, Galway. He ran and organized the “Unhinged Comedy Club” in The Cellar Bar. He was at the heart of the comedy scene in Galway. Now, he’s living in Dublin…

His comedy is brainy, bold and (un)balanced – he’s an arguably debatable spectator tempter. Connor will have you laughing away as he deals with the debaucherous topics that present themselves daily. The stimulating humdrum thoughts that arouse bemusement. And the oddball anecdotes that evoke smiles, from the lips, on your face. There’s a means to his madcap manoeuvres.
