Show Time: 8:15pm

By Colm O’Regan
Join comedian Colm O’Regan as he pokes the profile of our greatest economic disaster to try and explain where it all went wrong. Along the way, you’ll find out what school textbook heroes Ann and Barry can teach us about the bank guarantee, the real reason why Rapunzel’s house has no stairs, and what to do if a billionaire developer threatens to sue you for defamation … Colm will also be reading exclusive excerpts from his upcoming Mills and Boon novel about love across the boundaries in the planning department of a local authority: Permission to Build, License to Love.
After a sold-out premiere at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs and sell out shows all over the country and at the Edinburgh Fringe, Colm O’Regan beings his critically acclaimed multimedia stand-up comedy show to the Project Arts Centre.
