BRAND NEW STAND-UP SHOW - DEMENTED
3OLYMPIA THEATRE DATE CONFIRMED
Deirdre O’Kane brings her brand new stand-up show Demented to Dublin’s 3Olympia Theatre on Saturday 21 January, 2023.
The last few years have been something of a whirlwind for Deirdre O’Kane. She recently fronted her own talk show - Deirdre O’Kane Talks Funny - in the primetime Saturday night slot on RTÉ One and debuted a brand new standup comedy series, The Deirdre O’Kane Show, with Sky Comedy. Deirdre also appeared as a judge alongside Boy George, Aston Merrygold and Vogue Williams on the new Fox-developed talent show, The Big Deal, for Virgin Media Television.
A co-founder of Comic Relief in Ireland, Deirdre presented the critically acclaimed RTÉ Does Comic Relief which raised more than 6 million euros to help those most in need as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic and reached in excess of 1.4 million viewers across Ireland. In recent years she has hosted the prestigious IFTA Film & Drama Awards (for both RTÉ and Virgin Media), and reached the finals of the national broadcaster’s top-rated entertainment show, Dancing with the Stars. Deirdre is also known as the voice of smash-hit Gogglebox (Virgin Media) which returned for a seventh season in late 2021.
One of Ireland’s favourite comedians, Deirdre never strays too far from her live stand-up roots; her new show, Demented, a box-fresh hour of side splitting laughs, is touring Ireland and the UK in 2022 and 2023.
Speaking about her return to the 3Olympia Theatre Deirdre said; "I’m over excited to be bringing my new show DEMENTED to the 3Olympia, one of my favourite venues in the whole wide world. Not only did I have a great time shooting my show for Sky TV there last year, I also filmed my first special at the 3Olympia when video tapes were still a thing and I was just a young one!”
