The current Heads of State in RTEs Republic of Telly and The Fear: Kevin McGahern and Fred Cooke, have decided to address the nation this March, live from NUI Galway!

Our last NUI Galway Comedy gig of the year is Kevin McGahern & Fred Cooke at 8pm on Monday 7th of March in the O’Flaherty Theatre. Tickets are just €5 and all proceeds go to Galway Rape Crisis Centre & The Irish Cancer Society. Tickets on sale from the SU Office and the SU Engineering Building Desk.

Having carved out a niche for themselves in Irish Comedy circuit, they have agreed to enlighten a nation by answering the big questions facing modern Irish society….why should you never give Jay-z the satisfaction of a sideways glance? Just how sound are Irish guards? Is Fred’s sex life just like his driving situation: he has L plates and has to be accompanied by a fully licensed driver?

Kevin Mc Gahern is best known for his work on RTÉ’s flagship sketch show and for playing Sim Card in massive Irish hit comedy Hardy Bucks, McGahern has also been cutting his teeth on the Irish stand-up circuit, earning the respect of even the most grizzled of professionals.

Fred Cooke is known for his musical work on the Republic of Telly, The Fear, and now his New Reality Bites Show “Operation Transportation (Highway to Kells)”.

Don’t miss their one night collaboration When 2 become 1 in NUI Galway!
