Jarlath Regan: Organ Freeman

A selfish man (“A very funny man at the peak of his powers” - Irish Post) is forced to reassess his entire life when his best friend needs a kidney. A standup show from the creator of multi-million downloaded Irishman Abroad podcast, about life and death, give and take, Ant and Dec, youth and young manhood, getting it wrong while getting it right and never worrying about anything ever again.

Organ Freeman is Jarlath’s ninth solo show and by far his biggest to date. You may know Jarlath Regan from such television shows as Tonight At The Palladium (ITV), Russell Howard’s Good News (BBC), Standup Central (Comedy Central), Last Comic Standing (NBC) and Goggle Box (Channel 4). As recommended by Ardal O’Hanlon, Marc Maron, Jack Whitehall, Jason Byrne, The Times, The Telegragh, The Guardian and Tripadvisor.
