Gearóid Farrelly: Alchemy
Alchemy is a new show from comedian Gearóid Farrelly in which he is pretty certain he will be able to solve all of the worlds problems. To start with - Science needs more laughs, we need more superstar comebacks and Conor McGregor should just stop talking.
Gearóid has appeared at comedy festivals all over the world, touring with the likes of Joan Rivers, Patton Oswalt and Sarah Millican. He recently appeared on the BBC radio 4 panel show “An Elephant in the Room” and can be heard on his podcast “Fascinated” where he tracks down his childhood heroes!
Gearóid’s stand-up appearances for television include “Stand & Deliver”, “Tonight With Craig Doyle” and as a guest of Ardal O’Hanlon for Dave’s “One Night Stand”. In 2012 he made his solo debut at the Edinburgh Festival with his show “Turbulence” winning a five star review in the process.
He toured Ireland many times with Neil Delamere in Ireland.
Gearóid is the host of the popular podcast “Fascinated” where he chats to people he is a big fan of about their career and work. The series is a must for fans of 90s pop culture. He has interviewed Grammy Winners, Emmy Winners, Oscar Nominees, Eurovision Winners, Tony Winners, Politicians and Olympians. Last summer he interviewed his favourite actress “Cagney and Lacey” star Tyne Daly on stage at the Galway Film Fleadh.
Recently Gearóid was nominated by the public for a GALA Award (Irish LGBT+ Awards) in the Arts and Entertainment category alongside Graham Norton and Mark Feehily from Westlife.
