Hal Roach - It's Himself

Movie propaganda

"Irish comedy is so beautifully unpretentious that people love it all over the world for that very reason. Ireland was always conscious of the need to laugh - that's true - and tonight we're going to prove that!"  With over 60 years in the stand-up game, bespectacled funnyman Hal Roach has established a name and repertoire like none other. Holder of the Guinness Book of Records for the longest running comic engagement – his acclaimed routines have held him in good stead, headlining the world famous Jurys Irish Cabaret for over 26 years. Often referred to as the 'Bob Hope of Ireland' - good, clean, respectable comedy is the name of Hal's illustrious game, with a genuine jocular adoration to all things Irish and whimsical. Also featuring special guest vocalist Tony Kenny, It's Himself puts the gentleman comedian comfortably under the spotlight to win over the crowd with his personal anecdotes and reflections of the country he so loves - one delightful joke at a time. But be sure to remember if it truly tickles your funny bone don't just laugh out loud to forget it later -"you have to write it down folks, you really do!"
