Michael Stranney: Welcome to Ballybeg

  • Comedy (60 minutes)
Michael Stranney: Welcome to Ballybeg. Michael Stranney

As seen on ITV2, Michael Stranney (NATY winner, Chortle Best Newcomer nominee, BBC New Comedy Award finalist) presents the debut hour from his character Daniel Duffy. Daniel invites you to a tourist board presentation for his beloved village of Ballybeg - a curious Northern Irish backwater where the milkman brings his cow door-to-door every morning, where you can win a new husband in the annual raffle, and where the local hearse doubles as a minicab service. A surreal, immersive hour packed with warmth and imagination. 'Made me cry with laughter' (FringeReview.com) ****(EdFestMag.com) **** (Threeweeks).
