Dunboyne comedian to bring brand new stand-up show to Athlone
Cormac Moore from Dunboyne is taking his brand new stand up show 'Atention To Detail’ to Athlone next month.
With millions of views online for his Facebook University parodies, Christy Moore covers, Pintfulness sketches and stand-up clips, the comedian and award-winning broadcaster show's is about changing life situations, from changing careers, to getting married, health and his observations on those changes.
The talented comedian lived in Athlone for almost a year when he previously worked for iRadio in 2014. H explained: “I was presenting my first ever radio show The Cracked in 2014. It was a late night talk show and probably my favourite radio show I ever did. I was fortunate enough to get a nomination for best newcomer at the National Radio Awards that year, tragically losing out to Nicky Byrne when he was on 2FM.”
Cormac's new live show comes after he decided to walk away from a career in radio after almost ten years and chronicles the challenges he faced trying to get to grips with a new job in a completely different industry.
Cormac describes his style of comedy as “conversational storytelling” and is hopeful that people can expect a great night of comedy in Athlone. “There will be support acts on the night too and there's a free pint with every ticket thanks to Dead Centre Brewing.”
Cormac has performed comedy all over the world, saying: “I have been lucky enough to have performed all over the country and in the UK. I've done gigs in Australia and even Malayasia too. I'm really excited to be gigging in Athlone, it's also the first time I'll be gigging in a brewery too, so that's going to be fun.” The Meath native spent almost ten years presenting flagship shows on some of the biggest radio brands in the country including FM104, SPIN1038 and iRadio.
Cormac takes inspiration from some of his favourite comedians such as Jim Gaffigan, Dara O'Brien and Bill Burr. His online sketches and stand up clips have amassed millions of views online and he is an entertaining, quick-witted and seasoned performer.
Cormac will be performing in Dead Centre Brewing, Athlone on Friday, October 13. Doors open at 8pm. Tickets cost €12.50 and can be purchased on cormacmoore.com.
