Are Irish people scared that – if we don’t buy a house – someone will steal it from us for 800 years? And what’s the point of Marriage? Is it to find someone, who freakily resembles one of your parents, so you can spend eternity, having the same three arguments?

Abie Philbin Bowman (Irish Pictorial Weekly, Callan’s Kicks, Arena, ‘Jesus: The Guantanamo Years’) wants answers, in this critically acclaimed hour of stand up comedy. You’ll soon see why Abie has been chosen to warm up crowds for Andrew Maxwell, Trevor Noah and Reginald D Hunter.

“His comedy sits somewhere between Woody Allen and Jon Stewart… Bowman excels at sex jokes… a fast-paced journey of personal anecdotes, current affairs and subversive political satire (which) left the audience wanting more” –

“Abie Philbin Bowman deserves a comic Sainthood” – The Stage

“With his rapid-fire delivery, wit and taste for paradox, he calls to mind both Swift’s Modest Proposal and Robin Williams” — LA Weekly
