Reginald D Hunter: Bombe Shuffleur Tour 2022

2nd February 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

€27.50

Mass unemployment. Economic pandemics. The rise of global fascism. So what the f*** could this man POSSIBLY say to upset you? Welcome to the world of the Bombe Shuffleur. Just like everyone else Reginald D Hunter hasn’t been around for a while, but he’s back touring the theatres of Ireland and the UK with a brand-new show, and there’s no time for niceties. He’s also playing some warm up gigs in a few of his favourite Irish clubs, which gives comedy fans a truly special chance to catch him in an intimate setting. Unafraid to tackle head on the subjects the rest of us skirt around, Reginald is the voice of his generation searingly honest, brutally funny and uniquely placed to commentate on the unfolding meltdown of life as we know it. More than 20 years since moving to the UK from the US, three-time Perrier Award nominated Reginald has forged a reputation for delivering unadulterated comedy of the highest order. His TV appearances include Live at the Apollo, Have I Got News for You, and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, whilst he drew widespread acclaim for his two series for the BBC, Reginald D Hunters Songs Of The South and Reginald D Hunters Songs Of The Border.
