Kevin McAleer’s ‘boring Uncle Colm’ persona in Derry Girls brought him a whole new wave of fans; many of them were surprised to learn that he’s also a living legend of Irish stand-up in his spare time, but they have been catching on fast to what the regulars have been feasting on for years- the Tyrone space cadet’s legendary command of language, timing and delivery remains razor sharp, and his timeless brand of pure balderdash is funnier than ever. In ‘Why am I Here’, McAleer asks the really big questions and spectacularly fails to provide the answers. You mightn’t be any the wiser afterwards, but you definitely won’t be bored.
