Fellow Comedians; Alan Gernon
For our next comedian, we have a Louth village ex-pat currently living in Navan, where he runs the hugely successful Backroom Laughs gigs; it’s Alan Gernon!
I met Alan right when I started comedy, and we’ve gigged together dozens of times. A prolific joke-writer (add him on Facebook to get his joke-a-day updates), Alan recently landed a nifty deal which see’s him provide sketches for RTE’s Monday Night Soccer programme. Combining Alan’s comedy skills with his passion for football, the story of wannabe Soccer manager Mortimer Crawley should help make Alan a household name. And if soccer isn’t your thing, try check out Backroom Laughs monthly show in The Lantern pub in Navan; awesome line-ups in a fantastic room. Here’s Mortimer!
