Patrick Kielty to visit Torrington with a brand new show

Joseph Bulmer

Comedian Patrick Kielty will be at The Plough Arts Centre with his brand-new stand-up tour Borderline on Friday 10th June at 8pm. In his first UK dates since his critically acclaimed 2015 live show ‘Help’, he will play 33 dates across the country, preceded by a tour of Ireland which began in March.

Borderline sees Patrick Kielty return to his satirical roots with a personal take on borders, national identity and the future of the Union in a post-Brexit landscape.

As a Northern Ireland native, who grew up close to the Irish border, this new one man stand up show delves into his homeland’s recent history to try to make sense of what Brexit’s new borders and political upheaval means for our shared identities.

Patrick Kielty said: "The world’s been turned on its head the past few years and thanks to Brexit, we’re more obsessed with borders and national identity than ever.

"With Northern Ireland at the centre of it all, it feels like the right time to get back on stage and try to make some sense of where we’re heading.”
