The Maturation of an Inconvenient Negro (or iNEGRO) is a solo show that’s a raw self-reflection of a young Black man coming into himself, but still not yet himself. It is a nonstop verbal onslaught laced with heightened poetic language that takes the audience on a subversive journey of disillusionment, which culminates in a scathing implication of self, community, and culture. No one is safe. Nothing is sacred.

Kareem M. Lucas is a Brooklyn born and Harlem based Actor/​Writer/​Producer/​Director. His solo pieces include The Maturation of an Inconvenient Negro (or iNEGRO), From Brooklyn With Love, RATED BLACK: An American Requiem, A Boy & His Bow, and Black Is Beautiful, But It Ain’t Always Pretty. He has performed his solo work at The Greene Space, Aaron Davis Hall at City College, The Town Hall, Fire This Time Festival, IRT Theater, The Slipper Room, Teatro Círculo, Judson Arts Wednesdays, Hi-ARTS, AFO Theater, JACK, New York Theatre Workshop, The Public Theater, among others. He is currently co-collaborating on the immersive theatrical piece The Black History Museum…According to the United States of America, as a writer/performer with the Smoke & Mirrors Collaborative as a part of their Residency at HERE Arts Center, to premiere at HERE in November 2019. He most recently was a part of The 2019 Mentor Project at The Cherry Lane Theatre, where his solo show The Maturation of an Inconvenient Negro (or iNEGRO) was mounted. He’s also a Jerome Hill Artist Fellow and a NYTW 2050 Playwriting Fellow. MFA: NYU Graduate Acting Program.

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.
