David McSavage brings his take on modern Irish life to Mullingar Arts Centre


The ever-controversial David McSavage is set to bring his take on modern Irish life to stage when he plays at Mullingar Arts Centre, for one night only, on Monday, 29 April.

One of Ireland’s most popular comedians and street entertainers, McSavage’s cutting commentary and performances cover all aspects of life, and nothing is safe from his truth induced interpretations.

With his collection of characters including Mick The Barman, former President Mary Robinson and Pat Kenny, audiences relate to each character from the many aspects of Irish life.
A regular guest on TV and radio shows in Ireland for many years, McSavage has also appeared at all the major comedy festivals including the Edinburgh Festival and internationally in Australia, Germany and Scandinavia. He is well known for his street shows in Dublin’s Temple Bar.

He devised Headwreckers for the Channel 4 TV show Comedy Lab in 2008.

In 2009, he devised, wrote and starred in the six part TV series called The Savage Eye for RTÉ, which was later nominated for an IFTA award for Best Entertainment Series and Best Director.

In his new live show, A Sacred Cow, McSavage looks at the many former and current institutions which shape Ireland.

David McSavage plays Mullingar Arts Centre on Monday, 29 April. Tickets are from €15 and are available by calling the Mullingar Arts Centre box office on 044-934-7777 or online at mullingarartscentre. ie
