The Irish Comedy Tour Comes To Newton Theatre


originally published: 11/13/2022

The Irish Comedy Tour Comes To Newton Theatre

(NEWTON, NJ) -- The Irish Comedy Tour takes the party atmosphere of a Dublin pub and combines it with a boisterous, belly-laugh band of hooligans at The Newton Theatre on Saturday, March 4, 2023.  Don’t miss these hilarious Irish American comedians as they tear apart as well as validate all of the Irish myths and stereotypes. Showtime is 8:00pm.

The group’s comedians and musicians, whose ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle, include Detroit native Derek Richards; Washington D.C. born Patrick Garrity; Ohio’s Michael Malone; Nova Scotia’s Damon Leibert; and from Inchicore, a suburb of Dublin, Ireland Derrick Keane.

Audiences howl at Richards’ tales about his child free existence, living in Las Vegas and his blue collar upbringing . He has appeared on Amazon Prime, The Bob & Tom Show, SiriusXM, and The Weather Channel’s Top 10. He just released his fourth album, Double Down, available on iTunes, Spotify and Soundcloud.

Leibert’s unique and energetic style of fiddle playing lies somewhere between the driving dance beat of Cape Breton, and the lyrical music of Ireland. His power packed performance adds an incredible dimension to the show.

Keane, originally from Inchicore, Derrick first distinguished himself musically when the duo in which he sang and played swept the All Ireland Talent Competition. His band, Inchicore, sets the gold standard for the Irish music scene in New England and across North America. A brilliant voice and razor sharp wit make him a huge hit on the tour.

Garrity is known for his constant road schedule appropriately dubbed, The Never Ending Tour. This 20 year comedy veteran brings his hilarious observations and impressions to the stage. He’s a favorite from coast to coast and across the border in Canada.

And finally, Malone, with his blistering humor that focuses on breaking down the idiotic ways we deal with life, death, love, and grief. An absolute hammer of a comedian seen on Fox, Comedy Central, Showtime and HULU. Watch his special, Laugh After Death.

Don’t miss these hilarious Irish American comedians as they tear apart as well as validate all of the Irish myths and stereotypes.

The Newton Theatre is located at 234 Spring Street in Newton, New Jersey.
