Comedian Pat Shortt
Much-loved comedian Pat Shortt will visit Kildare twice over the coming weeks, and promises to deliver a side-splitting performance in his new show How's Tings
Fresh from the UK, Australian and US tours of his award-winning show, Selfie , Shortt returns with a brand new show.
In his inimitable high energy, anarchic style of performance, Pat brings his unique comic look at every day Irish characters and turns the normal to abnormal.
In How’s Tings, Pat introduces us to a variety of new characters, such as Eugene, the chairman of the local drama committee and every other committee in the parish, who shares with us his mundane insight into parish politics.
New character Sr Eucharia shares with the audience her hilarious look at religious life in small town Ireland.
