Roscommon comedian Cathal Shanagher’s, pictured top right, star continues to rise on the Irish comedy circuit as he bids to win two comedy competitions in the space of a week this month.
Cathal has already booked his place in the final of Dublin’s Next Top Comic on Monday, February 25th at The Comedy Shed at The Woolshed Bar on Parnell Street. The winner will claim a cash prize as well as a number of paid gigs and Cathal has called on all Dublin-based Rossies to come out and show their support on the night.
Before that and closer to home, Cathal is also due to appear in the final of Show Me The Funny in The King’s Head in Galway on Monday, February 18th where he will vie for a chance to appear in the comedy tent at this year’s Electric Picnic. A busy month ahead for the Roscommon town funnyman!
