Michéal has been doing comedy for the past few years and has gigged in various comedy clubs throughout Ireland. Physiotherapist by day, super comic by night. His dry wit and charm will bring back breaking laughter but at least he will be able to fix you afterwards.

An experienced improviser, Denny has returned to performing at MOB Theatre on Thursday night’s with his team, Ma’s Genes after a little trip across the world which ended in so much indigestion.
