Local TD Barry Cowen, Tullamore priest Fr Shane Crombie and Kinnitty Cllr John Clendennen will all try their hand at stand-up comedy as part of a novel fundraiser in Hugh Lynchs, Tullamore on Friday, February 24.

In a first for the town, Tullamore and District Rotary Club are hosting Strictly Stand Up event, which will see ten well-known local faces take to the stage to deliver five to ten minutes of stand-up comedy.

The brave participants are Fr Shane Crombie, Orla Healy, Graham Kavanagh, Deputy Barry Cowen, Carol Dowdall, Cleo Knight, Tony McCormack, Cllr John Clendennen, Frank Kelly and Kevin Pigott.

The comic novices are being mentored by comedian Karl Spain, who will be master of ceremony on the night. Karl is highly enthused by the commitment of the aspiring comedians and is working with them to develop their material.
Seating is limited and tickets for the event are selling fast and can be purchased through Hugh Lynch’s Facebook page or directly from the bar in advance. Each ticket entitles the holder to vote for their favourite comedian and additional votes can be purchased on the night.

The winner will be crowned the King or Queen of Comedy and become the first winner of the award.
All proceeds will be used by the club to support local charities and to fund the various community initiatives the club are facilitating.
