Stand Up Man c21

10 Dec Stand Up Man at Baby Grand

Northern Ireland theatres are set to host a dark comedy with a difference as Stand Up Man by Derek Murphy prepares to open at the Grand Opera House’s Baby Grand theatre on 28th January before touring regional theatres throughout February.

Stand Up Man follows Thaddeus McGuinn, played by Nick Hardin, a stand-up comedian who is one joke away from a mental breakdown. Disgraced ex-altar boy, Thaddeus, is about to face his toughest audience ever, his own sins. The play focuses on Thaddeus over one week, as he journeys back and forth between his audience and his family.

Well known Northern Ireland actor, comedian and TV personality, Tim McGarry will play a main role as Thaddeus’ alter ego as he visits his past and admits the errors of his way. This will be McGarry’s first serious theatre role after a successful, long-running career in comedy, radio and TV.
