TAKING inspiration from two rather unlikely sources - namely, the Dalai Lama and The Muppets - comedian Adam Hill’s long awaited new show, Happyism, will visit the Market Place Theatre next Wednesday night, September 25.
Fresh from his triumph as the host of Channel 4’s critically acclaimed entertainment show, The Last Leg, the Australian funnyman has also just completed a two-week run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Happyism will see everyone’s favourite Antipodean comedian take to the stage for a first-class evening of comedy with the usual anecdotes and audience participation all delivered in his refreshingly unique, laid-back style.
Adam has achieved international acclaim as one of the world’s best stand up comics.
His combination of positive uplifting comedy and rampant spontaneity has seen him receive numerous awards, glowing reviews and a legion of fans around the planet.
He became a household name in the UK after his part in the London Paralympics Games where he fronted the hugely successful ‘The Last Leg’ for Channel 4, alongside Josh Widdicombe and Alex Brooker.
Its success led to Adam hosting Channel 4’s alternative Christmas Day message – a first for an Australian!
Three times nominated for the prestigious Perrier Award, Adam’s solo shows are established highlights at the Adelaide Fringe, the Melbourne Comedy Festival, and the Edinburgh Fringe, where he regularly sells over 10,000 tickets in the month.
He has also been awarded Australia’s Helpman Award for Best Comedy Performance, and has received the Best of the Fest, and Forth Fringe Award from Edinburgh Fringe critics.
Happyism will run at the Market Place Theatre in Armagh next Wednesday night and on Thursday night at the Ulster Hall Belfast.
