Gusto with Billy Magra

This show is now over. Please see our full listing for other shows you might enjoy.

"extremely funny, most imaginative, exceedingly agile and irresistibly charming"
The Irish Times

In 1983 Billy Magra was hailed as one of Ireland’s best stand-up comedians, appearing on the Late Late Show and blazing a trail for others. But then his ‘other half’ Billy McGrath emerged as an award-winning TV/ Film director (U2; Italia ’90; Pogues; Clannad; Bowie; Rats); comedy producer (Sean Hughes; Izzard: O’Kane; Rubberbandits; Tiernan; Bishop); first ever Commissioning Editor of RTÉ TV Entertainment & now Sideline (Great Irish Bake Off; GAA DVDs; RTÉ Radio 1’s Comedy Showhouse & grintage FB).

Now Magra & McGrath re-unite to explore how a lifelong hippy punk can still buck the system - and grow old disgracefully.
