Exchange Words at Exchange Dublin, presents the fourth of our monthly comedy events. Marshmallow Ladyboy Jesus 4 - All Your Sins, is an evening of blasphemous experimental comedy from some of Ireland’s most talented writers, comedians and storytellers.
So far our events have played host to a variety of ludicrous performances...
* Brown Bread Mixtape founder Kalle Ryan – Gave a lecture about his legendary life.
* Musician David Turpin - Read an epic poem about a Neanderthal falling in love with her kidnapper.
* Roger Gregg’s Crazy Dog Theatre Company – Performed a musical detective story, with sax solos.
* Comedian & Childrens TV presenter Damon Blake – Read the mostly untrue diaries of his fear and loathing in Amsterdam.
* Diet of Worms’ Shane Langan - Read from his ever growing series of imaginary novels.
* Video Comedian Enda McNally – Sang his families theme tune karaoke style.
* The publisher of Ireland's first porn magazine told the story of its creation.
* Wild man comedian Enda Muldoon – Symbolically killed his wife on stage.
This months guests include:
Kevin Gildea is a comedian, writer, actor described by the Guardian as ‘quirky’, ‘innovative,’ ‘creative’ and ‘pioneering’ and by The Sunday Times as ‘highly original and explosively funny’. He is familiar to TV viewers from his appearance in Father Ted and RTE’s ‘The View’. His bleakly hilarious comic fiction brings to mind Flann O’Brien, as performed by David Sedaris.
Narrative Arts Oh-Aissieux is one of the foremost figures in the Irish storytelling revival. As one half of Dublin’s Narrative Arts Club he’s been telling ancient stories in a modern idiom at Irish and international festivals since 2005.
Performance artist Philippe Senouci was the most exciting thing about the recent NCAD end of year show. His Beckettian nightmare piece ‘Performing Abjection’ was both hilarious and frightening. We look
forward to his unpredictable contribution to the evening.
Film maker and ‘Milk & Cookies Stories’ star storyteller Thomas Rowley is the man behind the new Storymap Dublin project. His anecdotes of romantic misadventure are helping to popularise American style comedic storytelling in Dublin.
Marshmallow Ladyboy Jesus is curated and hosted by Gareth Stack. Gareth is a writer and comedian who has performed standup comedy around Ireland, assistant edited Trinity College Dublin’s satirical
magazine Piranha, and produced the popular ‘Invisible Tour Guide’ and ‘Technolotics’ podcast series.
The event will take place on Thursday 26th August @ Exchange Dublin, Temple Bar. Tickets € 5 / € 3 concessions available on the door. This is a non-profit event, and all money raised goes toward the running of Exchange Dublin.
