Comedian Ger Carey pays a visit to Friars’ Gate, Kilmallock on this Friday (21st) when he will perform his new show ‘The Fridge is Empty’ and he will be followed on Sunday night (23rd) by the legendary Johnny McEvoy.
Ger Carey is vack and, after years of hiding in hedges observing people, he claims he has all the answers! Answers to questions like, why do we think we know the lyrics to songs when we’re drunk? What’s it like to be subjected to a drive-by slagging? Why do teenagers start dancing when they hear a car alarm? What’s it like at an ISIS comedy gig? Why does the US have a smoking ban on death row?
When someone asks for directions but we don’t know, why do we try anyway? What would happen if people could name their racehorses anything they like? What is it about teenagers that make you want to throw darts at them? Why do your knees go first? And most importantly, why is the fridge always empty?!
