Lorcan McGrane: Things I’ve Seen Around Town

“Lorcan is one of Ireland’s best up and coming comedians. Deadpan, erudite and self-effacing, you’ll love his unique take on small town life.”

-Belfast Empire

“The future of Ulster comedy is in very safe hands.”- Belfast Telegraph

Experimental Soviet silent documentary Man with a Movie Camera (1929), directed by Dziga Vertov and edited by his wife Elizaveta Svilov, is the perfect reference to drop in at the start of a show synopsis in an attempt to add gravitas to an hour of weird and strange things that comedian Lorcan McGrane (BBC’s Live at the Sunflower, Edinburgh Fringe) has been taking photos of for the last two years.

Actually forget the Vertov reference, Lorcan is more like the Camerahead Cenobite from Hellraiser III: Hell on Earth (1992) a forlorn character intimately attached to technology, cataloguing the minutiae of a mundane life. Come and hear more hilarious tales of life, loneliness and a middle-aged man rearranging his Lego Batman minifigures in his teenage bedroom, much like rearranging the deck-chairs on his own emotional Titanic.

Monaghan native Lorcan started stand up in 2007 has since written and performed five one-hour multi-media shows packed with uniquely funny stories and jokes inspired by comics, action figures and wandering around rural charity shops seeking the geeky strangeness of everyday life. He has supported such artists as Ardal O’Hanlon, Colin Murphy, Pat McDonnell, Kevin McAleer, John Colleary, Kevin Eldon, Teresa Livingstone, Bec Hill, Jarred Christmas, Kevin McGahern, and Foil Arms & Hog and has appeared on Today FM, BBC Radio 4, Newstalk, Phantom FM, and Dublin City FM.
