Sligo native, John Colleary will embark on a national tour this Autumn ‘LOUD & COLLEARY’, which brings him to back to Sligo Live Festival for a hometown headline show in the Hawk’s Well Theatre on Saturday October 28th.
John spent much of 2022 opening for Tommy Tiernan on his sold-out ‘Tomfoolery’ tour to tens of thousands of comedy fans up, down and around the country – including two sold out nights at Sligo Live Festival last October.
Apart from being one of the most in-demand comics in the land, John Colleary has also co-written and starred in IFTA nominated shows, The Savage Eye (RTÉ2) and Irish Pictorial Weekly (RTÉ One). Other TV credits include appearances on Stand & Deliver (Live from Róisín Dubh) and The Panel (RTÉ2). A talented actor and mimic, John featured as one third of The Gusset Brothers on The Tommy Tiernan Show (RTÉ One).
He has also scooped an IMRO Award for his topical sketch writing and performance on Today FM’s drivetime flagship, The Last Word; and is a favourite at Ireland’s top comedy clubs and festivals.
