Mary Coughlan is one of Ireland’s greatest female jazz and blues singers a true artist who has carved out a highly regarded career and a legion of devoted fans worldwide.
Described as Ireland’s Billie Holiday, Mary has overcome childhood trauma, alcoholism, drug addiction to become a musical force like no other. Her life story gives weight to the truth that the best singers are the ones with the most painful lives (The Guardian).
Her seminal first album Tired and Emotional rocketed her to overnight fame in 1985, and fifteen albums later, her ability to deeply connect with both the song and her audience remains undiminished, a testament to her inner strength and to the power of transformation redemption.
Mary live is in a league of her own, her glorious husky voice pulling every ounce of emotion from the music. As the Observer rightly said “Mary Coughlan’s talent is awesome.”
Resonant with the grief of Billie Holiday the soul of Van Morrison and the defiance of Edith Piaf, to hear Mary sing is to be at the core of the human heart.
“Her husky gin-soaked voice has been compared more often to Billie Holiday… at times she is more like an incredibly relaxed KD Lang or Edith Piaf.” The Times.

Jerry Sadowitz, Britain’s FAVOURITE COMEDIAN, is back!
Yes, the man with no visible demograph returns to make you laugh while simultaneously parting you of hard earned cash!
Affectionately known as ‘miserable c**t’ to his imaginary friends, Sadowitz is the only comic hardly working today who campaigns against human rights.
His television appearances include Love Island, Hard Talk, Michty Me!(still in production) and Loose Stools. He now suffers from Alzheimer’s disease and has to watch Netflix comedy specials so he can remember his own material.

Following last year’s smash-hit UK tour, the Canadian comedy legend is back with a new show. Welcome back to ‘I SWEAR TO…’ picking up just where he left off as an hour simply wasn’t long enough.
Direct from the Edinburgh Festival, join Tom as he attempts to figure out exactly where he fits into this emerging new world of feelings and FaceTime. Exactly when did he, and all his stuff become vintage – and why didn’t he see it coming?
Armed with his usual swagger and playful sense of mischief, join Tom as he explores these generational conundrums, and a whole lot more….
One of the most prolific and engaging stand-ups of our time. As seen on Ch4’s Comedy Gala, BBC One’s Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow, The John Bishop Show and Live at the Apollo (twice, bitches!)
