Victorian repression clashes with liberal expression. Cloud 9 follows a British family from colonial Africa to contemporary London through unexpected trysts, gender swaps, role reversals, and power plays. This provocative, exuberant, time-shifting comedy is both a parody and spoof of the ever-changing world of sexual politics. Caryl Churchill, lauded with "creating a new theatrical language," was recently recognized by The Guardian as "now sharing with Tom Stoppard the title of Britain’s most significant living dramatist."

[more+]

If there was one R&B artist for whom the neo-soul categorization seemed limiting, it was Philadelphia native Bilal. None of his recordings resembled the sycophantic worship of soul artists who thrived in the ’60 and ’70s, and it wasn’t just because his voice — classically trained, capable of singing opera in seven languages — was so unique. While some inspirations were detectable, his recordings were wholly modern and became increasingly creative. His individuality led to being dropped from a major label, and he went several years without releasing any solo material. Through evangelism from his peers and word of mouth from his early fans, Bilal gained an insatiable following and was supported by sympathetic independent labels, where he was finally able to thrive creatively.

The Irish Comedy Tour takes the party atmosphere of a Dublin pub and combines it with a boisterous, belly-laugh band of hooligans.

The clover -- make that clever -- comedians, whose ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle, include Detroit native Derek Richards; Boston-born Mike McCarthy; Nova Scotia's Damon Leibert; and from Inchicore, a suburb of Dublin, Ireland Derrick Keane.

Audiences howl at Richards' tales about his mom's dog, the holidays and dating a stripper. He has appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, XM and Sirius, and The Weather Channel's Top 10.

McCarthy's no-holds-barred humor has landed him on Comedy Central and Showtime. The "comedy barbarian," as he calls himself, takes no prisoners when it comes to poking fun at society's most sensitive topics.

Leibert's unique and energetic style of fiddle playing lies somewhere between the driving dance beat of Cape Breton, and the lyrical music of Ireland. His power packed performance adds an incredible dimension to the show.

And finally Keane, originally from Inchicore, Derrick first distinguished himself musically when the duo in which he sang and played swept the All Ireland Talent Competition. His band, Inchicore, sets the gold standard for the Irish music scene in New England and across North America.

The group has broken through with a one hour special appropriately called, The Irish Comedy Tour, streaming on demand on: DISH, DirecTV, Comcast Xfinity, Charted, Cox, Amazon Prime, VUDU, YouTube, iTunes and many more.

Don't miss these hilarious Irish American comedians as they tear apart as well as validate all of the Irish myths and stereotypes.

All sales are final. No request for cancellations, exchanges, changes or refunds shall be honored.

Victorian repression clashes with liberal expression. Cloud 9 follows a British family from colonial Africa to contemporary London through unexpected trysts, gender swaps, role reversals, and power plays. This provocative, exuberant, time-shifting comedy is both a parody and spoof of the ever-changing world of sexual politics. Caryl Churchill, lauded with "creating a new theatrical language," was recently recognized by The Guardian as "now sharing with Tom Stoppard the title of Britain’s most significant living dramatist."

by Caryl Churchill
Directed by Lee Mikeska Gardner

If there was one R&B artist for whom the neo-soul categorization seemed limiting, it was Philadelphia native Bilal. None of his recordings resembled the sycophantic worship of soul artists who thrived in the ’60 and ’70s, and it wasn’t just because his voice — classically trained, capable of singing opera in seven languages — was so unique. While some inspirations were detectable, his recordings were wholly modern and became increasingly creative. His individuality led to being dropped from a major label, and he went several years without releasing any solo material. Through evangelism from his peers and word of mouth from his early fans, Bilal gained an insatiable following and was supported by sympathetic independent labels, where he was finally able to thrive creatively.

The Irish Comedy Tour takes the party atmosphere of a Dublin pub and combines it with a boisterous, belly-laugh band of hooligans.

The clover -- make that clever -- comedians, whose ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle, include Detroit native Derek Richards; Boston-born Mike McCarthy; Nova Scotia's Damon Leibert; and from Inchicore, a suburb of Dublin, Ireland Derrick Keane.

Audiences howl at Richards' tales about his mom's dog, the holidays and dating a stripper. He has appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, XM and Sirius, and The Weather Channel's Top 10.

McCarthy's no-holds-barred humor has landed him on Comedy Central and Showtime. The "comedy barbarian," as he calls himself, takes no prisoners when it comes to poking fun at society's most sensitive topics.

Leibert's unique and energetic style of fiddle playing lies somewhere between the driving dance beat of Cape Breton, and the lyrical music of Ireland. His power packed performance adds an incredible dimension to the show.

And finally Keane, originally from Inchicore, Derrick first distinguished himself musically when the duo in which he sang and played swept the All Ireland Talent Competition. His band, Inchicore, sets the gold standard for the Irish music scene in New England and across North America.

The group has broken through with a one hour special appropriately called, The Irish Comedy Tour, streaming on demand on: DISH, DirecTV, Comcast Xfinity, Charted, Cox, Amazon Prime, VUDU, YouTube, iTunes and many more.

Don't miss these hilarious Irish American comedians as they tear apart as well as validate all of the Irish myths and stereotypes.

All sales are final. No request for cancellations, exchanges, changes or refunds shall be honored.
