NY Irish Center Annual Fundraiser - A Night of Irish Comedy with Colin Quinn

 

The New York Irish Center presents A Night of Irish Comedy & Music, its annual fund-raising gala event. Mundy, one of the top contemporary Irish singer-songwriters, is the music headliner and former SNL cast member Colin Quinn, handles the comedy portion of the evening along with MC and Late Show veteran Eddie Brill. There will also be a mystery special guest star.

If you're not sure who Mundy is, he's from Offaly and he sings this classic:

He also has done one of the better-known remakes of Galway Girl in recent years, even performing it for President Obama when he was in Ireland last year. And did I mention "Gin and Tonic Sky"?

This promises to be a fantastic evening of music and comedy celebrating the Irish and Irish-American traditions and it WILL sell out, so don't wait to buy tickets. Tickets are $80 for orchestra, $55 for balcony. I'm personally a big fan of the balcony seats at Symphony Space and recommend them. For more info about the show and a link to buy tickets online, goto:

Like I said, the show will sell out fast so we can't reserve a block of tickets for the group. Get tickets on your own and we'll let you know about a pre- or post-show get-together. Given the early start time, I'm leaning towards the latter.

It's all for a good cause too as all proceeds benefit the New York Irish Center. See you there!

    love Colin's NY Irish humor. Dead on. Jack Lundy's Ol' Man River was unexpected but awesome. Liked non-Irish Eddie Brill's take on visiting Ireland. Hope Mundy's with his Galway girl.
