Full press release
One of Ireland's funniest comedians Patrick Kielty will return to his stand-up roots with his new show Help. Performing at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival for the first time, Patrick's seven shows will take place at the Assembly George Square (Studio Three) from 24 August. This will be followed by a UK tour in Autumn 2015.
But he can't do it on his own - he needs your help. Join the former psychology graduate and star of BBC1's Live at the Apollo, Dave's One Night Stand and host of Radio 2's BBC New Comedy Awards as he attempts to write a modern rulebook for love, life and happiness. Bring him your lovers, your advice and a crayon. Kielty promises to do the rest.
Patrick said: "My first Edinburgh Festival run is going to be a highlight. And the fact that the audience gets involved in the show every night means no two shows will be the same. Though what help they actually give me remains to be seen!"
Patrick first rose to fame in 1995 after appearing on Comic Relief's St Patrick's Day Stand Up Special alongside comic heavy-weights Ben Elton and Jo Brand, having earned a reputation in Ireland for his fearless satirical routines.
Following his successful TV debut, Kielty went on to host Channel 4 comedy series Last Chance Lottery and hit BBC series show Fame Academy shortly afterward. His chat show Patrick Kielty Almost Live hit screens in 2002 and ran for six seasons on BBC1 to critical acclaim. More recently Patrick has been a regular voice on BBC Radio 2, also making appearances on Channel 4's Comedy Roasts and hosting the channel's popular show Stand Up For The Week.
