Birdies Comedy: The Savoy Tap, The Strand, London, 2019
Neil O’Rourke delivered a five-minute routine when I went to Birdies Comedy free showcase in London in 2017. The Irish comedian had wonderful punchlines and amusing jokes about relationships and doing his best at coping with life.
For me, there are a lot of very funny Irish comedians around – Aisling Bea, Andrew Ryan, Dara O’Briain and so on – who seem to be fearless on stage and can make any subject funny. Neil O’Rourke is the latest addition who appeared at Birdies free comedy showcase that I saw in October 2019. I was swept along by his enthusiasm and limited by time that I made a note to see him again if I got the chance.
