FERMOY BANK BAILOUT CAMPAIGN CALLS IN TOP COMEDIAN
Those who might feel that the bank bailout and current economic crisis needs to be addressed more vigorously by the Government might well have something to offer a little ‘light relief’ at Fermoy Town Park on Saturday week next, September 17 at 3pm.
Cian O’Meara of the ‘Shirt off my back’ campaign has invited comedian Abie Philbin-Bowman to Fermoy to join in supporting the campaign and do a bit of stand up into the bargain.
“We will have other guest speakers as well but Abie has made some big waves in the comedy world following his recent appearance at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival,” Mr O’Meara told The Avondhu.
Abie Philbin-Bowman shot to fame with his comedy show ‘Jesus: The Guantanamo Years’.
“Christ returns to earth but doesn’t get through US immigration. He’s a bearded, Middle Eastern guy who wants to die as a martyr, ” Abie said when asked about his comedy.
His second show, ‘Eco-Friendly Jihad’, suggested we could radically reduce carbon emissions by joining Al Qaeda.
“Who else can save the planet from airlines, oil-companies and overpopulation?” The event is completely free and will take the style of a picnic.
“Weather permitting, of course, we want to invite everybody who has taken part in the Fermoy anti bank bailout campaign over the last few months to come along and the event is, of course, also open to everybody who just wants to come along,” Cian O’Meara said.
