Northern Ireland’s favourite dysfunctional family is coming to the Burnavon.
Featuring flegs, Haass, Paisley, topical satire and a little bit of everything that’s been in the news this year, Give My Head Peace is the up to the minute topical show not to be missed - and it returns to the Burnavon, Cookstown on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th March.
2014 is a year of anniversaries – it’s a year and a bit since they took the ‘fleg’ down at City Hall, 100 years since the start of World War I, 20 years since the first IRA ceasefire and 18 years since Uncle Andy last brought a round in the Kneebreakers.
This March also marks the fifth year of Uncle Andy and the rest of the gang from Give My Head Peace performing at the Burnavon in Cookstown.
A familiar face to viewers of the BBC’s The Blame Game, and Hole in the Wall Gang aficionados, the Show Producer and on-stage ‘Da’ Tim McGarry says, “Featuring Billy the Peeler pretending to be deaf to get a big claim off the police, Da applying for the job of the new Chief Constable as well as Uncle Andy and his notorious side-kick Pastor Begbie (Paddy Jenkins whose acting credits include ‘Dancing Shoes - the George Best Story’ and ‘Shoot the Crow’) planning to stand in May’s local elections, Give My Head Peace Live 2014 is a hilarious romp that ridicules our politics and politicians and much else besides.”
Ma, Dympna and Cal will be there, among others and there will be stand-up from McGarry who also hints that audiences can expect “a wee bit of blasphemy to try and get ourselves banned. This is one show that is a guaranteed laugh out loud night of comedy. We can’t wait to get Give My Head Peace out on the road again. Audiences will get to see their favourite characters give a unique take on the year’s events. It promises to be a great night out!”
If you’ve seen the Gang live before, you’ll be back for more. If you haven’t seen them in a while - come and see what you’ve been missing.
