Touring Shows

SHOW 1 – CRUEL AND UNUSUAL

Keith Farnan: Cruel And Unusual manages to be genuinely informative about death row, genuinely realistic about the possibility of change, and genuinely funny enough to receive several rounds of applause.” – Three Weeks

Spellbinding!”Chortle

“The Show you should try to see this festival!”-The List

Cruel and Unusual Punishment is prohibited under the 8th amendment of the U.S. Constitution. But the Death Penalty is still legal.

Which means that you can hang someone, shoot them, electrocute them and poison them – but under no circumstances should you have someone executed by dropping a giant jelly bean on their head, by a dwarf, in a penguin suit.

Because that’d be cruel… and unusual.

Cruel and Unusual is a Stand-up show telling the story of former Solicitor and now Comedian Keith Farnan’s journey from law school in Ireland to the Innocence Project in New York city; meeting with Sr.Helen Prejean ofDead Man Walking fame, and on to his summer in a Public Defenders Office in Georgia – where he wonders whether the Irish might just be the only people in the world who can stop the death penalty in America…

Cruel and Unusual makes a laughing stock of the stocks by ridiculing the system as seen through the eyes of an Irish comedian. Showing the Death Penalty in its true light – a barbaric, racist, politically motivated act of revenge that doesn’t achieve any of its so called aims,  including deterring violent crime. And it’s just plain stupid.

This Show has already toured Colleges and Festivals including the Royal Festival Hall in London, in conjunction with Amnesty International and Reprieve and continues to tour throughout Ireland and the UK.

SHOW 2 – NO BLACKS. NO JEWS. NO DOGS. NO IRISH. ALL WELCOME

“Both witty and insightful, Farnan combines charm and chutzpah and tells a good yarn – his jokes can be sparky and sometimes even edgy, yet he remains gleeful throughout”  – The Stage

“A Comedian with formidable skill” – The List

A barrage of non-stop banter and jokes… This is a show that showcases Farnan’s rapier wit whilst running the gamut of prejudices that exist in our society – Allthefestivals.com

Keith Farnan: No Blacks. No Jews. No Dogs. No Irish. All Welcome sold out it’s run in Londons West End Soho Theatre as well as having sold out it’s run at last years Edinburgh Festival.

Whilst working in a restaurant in the USA, Keith came across this old-fashioned sign in the manager’s office. Stranger still is that the employees consisted of a young African-American, a Jewish waiter and his Irish self, but no dogs to be seen, so perhaps certain prejudices never die. ‘No Blacks. No Jews. No Dogs. No Irish. All Welcome’ is the exploration into racism and the dangers of the possible returns of prejudice against immigration.

Keith has always found being Irish an advantage – who doesn’t love a good old Irish accent whilst sipping on a pint of stout? But it wasn’t always like this and signs such as “No Irish Need Apply” were commonplace where the Irish landed in droves. So what happened to change people’s mind? And how have the Irish treated their own immigrants over the years?

So in this hilarious hour of political queries and investigation, expect lots of questions, very few answers but plenty of laughs!

THE SKINNY

5 Stars for Keith Farnan

“Incisive, brilliant comedy…We should be shouting from the rooftops about him.”

WHATSONSTAGE.COM

4 Stars for Keith Farnan

“Farnan has taken the age-old women are from Venus, men are from Mars line and given it a sharp, funny and very relevant spin”

CHORTLE

4 Stars for Keith Farnan

“Farnan will make you think hard and laugh even harder”

THE LIST

Do we value women, or do we just put a value on them? In Sex Traffic, Keith Farnan looks at whether we value women or if we simply put a value on them. In a year when Primark were caught selling push up bra’s to 7 year olds, a Doctor revealed she was the high class escort Belle De Jour,  and the Mumsnet Election returned even fewer female MP’s, women’s right to equality seems to be on the ropes, and they don’t seem to know there’s a boxing match happening. At the same time, Iceland has turned to a female Prime Minister and all the EU have turned to Angela Merkel to save them from ruin…or clean up the mess. So what do we want from women, and what do they want from themselves?
