Straight from the shores of Craggy Island to the stage of Good Heavens, Ardal O’Hanlon (aka Father Dougal Mcguire) will be entertaining the locals of Shimokitazawa for one night only. Luckily, the intimate setting will mean you’re close enough to avoid wondering if he’s very small or just far away, and while beers are on offer, you may find yourself with the sudden urge for a cup of tea…
Jokes aside*, (that’s not our job after all) Ardal is a hilarious comedian in his own right and has appeared on Live at the Apollo, Who’s Line is it Anyway and Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow among others. If you’ve not been to this particular venue before, it’s no arena, so grab your tickets while you can!
*If you don’t know which jokes we are referring to, please immediately watch Father Ted – you’re welcome.
