Comedy Lab: Alan Irwin – Disengaged
Monday 17 July 2017
The Green Room, Black Box
2016 might have been the worst year of Alan Irwin’s life. Heavily medicated and emotionally deadened, he stopped caring about everything, and his life torpedoed. In 2017, he’s no longer dead inside. How? Well, it turns out hate can set you free.
There’s a lot to be angry about in the world, but there’s a lot more to be irritated by. Join Alan on a journey through practically all of the things he once ignored but now gets worked up about.
“Disengaged” is the fourth full-length show of new material from Alan Irwin, who has gigged across the UK and Ireland. He has appeared on BBC Radio Ulster’s “Live at the Sunflower” and “The Shane Todd Show”, headlined the prestigious “Red Raw” at The Stand Comedy Club, and in his younger days was a finalist in the 2014 Chortle Student Comedy Award. This is the first work-in-progress performance of the show.
