Barry has been a writer or performer or both on practically all critically acclaimed homegrown comedy for several decades. His list of credits includes The End, Father Ted, Soupy Norman, Stand and Deliver and of course Après Match.

Special guests at this week’s Dolans Comedy Club include John Colleary show is one of Ireland’s most in-demand comics.
