Irish comedian Brian Gallagher was my guest on this week’s episode of My Worst Gig. He shared a beautiful story about gigging in small Irish town that were apparently a little bit racist. Which must have been awkward.
Brian has done the Vodafone Comedy Festival and comedy tent at Electric Picnic and runs the Riff Raff comedy club in the Chelsea Drug Store too.
He’s also a regular contributor to the hugely successful TRY channel on YouTube.

Irish comedian Julie Jay has quickly established herself as one of the best new acts on the Irish circuit. In 3 short years doing stand up, she has supported some of Ireland’s top acts, including Neil Delamere, Ardal O’Hanlon and the legend himself Tommy Tiernan.
Comedian Paul Smith is resident MC of the Hot Water Comedy Club in Liverpool and is quickly becoming one of the best comedians working in the UK.
Every week on Room 104, I invite some of Ireland’s best comedians on to talk about their worst gigs. Because, if we’re being honest, there is absolutely nothing entertaining about good gigs. This week Chris Kent is up.
Neil Delamere joined me on Sunday Night Live to talk about whether or not he’ll be able to work in the north after Brexit, about some of his latest TV projects and his latest stand up comedy show.
Delamere has been one of Ireland’s most well known and hardworking comedians, working on shows like The Panel and the Blame Game for the BBC.
Throwback to when I gigged in front of Kim Jong Un in a gym in North Korea. Pretty sure it was the first comedy gig in North Korea ever, which was nice.
I kicked things off by telling him he had a girls name and that it was hilarious! He didn’t find it funny. Nor did any of his generals or military personal. He’s a bit of tough cookie and not going to lie, it was a struggling trying to build the atmosphere back up from that.
A risky joke to open with that didn’t pay off in the end, but if you don’t chance it, you’ll never get those breaks. How I made it out safely from the country is a story for another time.
