Danny O’ Brien: Reformer

Bookings through Box Office on 01-2724030

Whats happens when a touring stand-up comedian can no longer stand up?

After a near career-ending knee injury O' Brien is too young for pilates and too unbalanced for yoga. This award-winning performer brings you his brand new hilarious new hour of stand-up where self-destruction and self-discovery meet! ‘Reformer’ completely sold out its month-long run of shows at The Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Galway International Arts Festival as well as a series of sell-out European and US dates in 2019. After a complete sell-out Irish tour up until March 2020, the Wicklow native is returning to Bray for a special one night only performance of his hit solo show as part of Culture Night in Mermaid Arts Centre.

Following in the footsteps of Tommy Tiernan and Dylan Moran, Danny was handpicked to perform as part of the iconic ‘Best of the Edinburgh Fest’ show touring Australia three years in a row- the most by any Irish comedian to date. He has also featured on The Comedy Channel and is a regular on Irish Television and Radio. He has supported Today FM’s Dermot & Dave on three live tours and last year was asked to open for American comedian Bill Burr in front of over 7,000 people in Dublin.

Danny created and launched 'Garden Gigs Ireland' during the pandemic in 2020 and it featured on every major Irish media, television and national radio station outlet. It also received huge recognition in the UK and in the worldwide comedy community for keeping live-stand up going during a lockdown. The comic also helped to raise over €100,000 during the Covid-19 crisis for charities such as The Irish Cancer Society, Pieta House & Wexford Women’s Refuge.

He also wrote and filmed a ‘Lockdown Comedy Special’ which will air on Virgin Media Television this August.
