David Hull Promotions and The Big Tickle presents 1916 Tim McGarry ‘Goes Over the Top’ Friday 16th September 2016 8pm

Tim McGarry (Blame Game, Give My Head Peace, Hearts and Minds, A Perforated Ulster) is back!

Following the success of Tim McGarry's Irish History Lesson, Tim returns with a brand new stand-up show about our history.

In 2016 we have be inundated with worthy and serious dramas and documentaries about the meaning of 1916. There has been much chin stroking and nodding of heads sagely. Tim McGarry doesn't want that. He wants to give you jokes.
What are the funny myths and facts about 1916? Why do we take our history so seriously? And how can we stop taking it seriously?

Tim will cover the period from the start of the 1900s from Oscar Wilde and Carson, to the Titanic and the build-up to the Easter Rising and the Somme.

Expect myths to be exploded and sacred cows to be slaughtered but above all expect laughs.

Tickets £15/ £13 (includes £1 development donation)
