Neil Delamere is a Mere Mortal

Neil Delamere brings his new show to the Mullingar Arts Centre this Saturday

Currently one of the biggest names in Irish comedy, Neil Delamere in his new show, is discovering he is a mere mortal!

Star of RTE's Republic of Telly, Mr Delamere will be beguiling audience members with tales of his journey from a 16-year-old teen to the thirty something he is today in the Mullingar Arts Centre on Saturday March 2.

The basis for his new show comes from the realisation that he has now lived in Dublin as long as he has lived in his family home in Offaly. But what exactly has Neil learned in the 16 years since he left home? Find out for yourself when Neil dabbles in a little witty self-reflection and good spirited fun with a trip down memory lane aided by original footage from 90's quiz show, Blackboard Jungle, when he captained his school team to victory.

With several platinum selling DVDs under his belt instead, Neil Delamere's profile has risen considerably over recent years, making him one of the best loved and recognised comedians across Irish television and airwaves. Last year was a very busy year for Neil with a sell-out tour, receiving an IFTA award for his documentary The Only Viking in the Village, the first instalment of Neil's new satirical comedy series The 2nd Republic on RTE Radio One and performances at both the prestigious Cat Laughs Comedy Festival and The Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
