Jake O’Kane’s Maskerade

David Hull presents...Jake O’Kane’s Maskerade – The Mask comes off! (…sorry)

He’s an actor, a mimic, an unstoppable witty, erudite man who has his eye on the ball and leaves our sides sore

Anne Hailes, Irish News

Although Covid rudely interrupted Jake’s unbroken run of sold-out tours, he’s back! As always, Jake will deal with the really important questions such as who put Jamie Bryson on that bin?  

Are Catholics more prone to catching Covid than Protestants?

Is a Union or Tricolour face mask better at protecting you from Covid?

Could he charge more for his end of year tour?

Back with Jake will be the ever-funny Terry McHugh, who’ll be sharing his horror at being marooned in Tyrone during the lockdown.
Just how both will manage to fit two year’s material into one show is still being explored, but one thing is certain: if you want to smile behind your face mask, 
this is the show to see.

Show contains adult reference for 16 +

From the moment he walked on stage, he had the audience in the palm of his hand. He could have just given them a look and everyone would have been in stitches

Terry McHugh

Terry McHugh at Portico in May 2020

North Belfast Comedian and former yoyo champion Terry McHugh, performed his first gig in December 2012 and has since become one of the most exciting up and coming comedy talents in the country. A natural born storyteller and disgruntled Belfast man exiled to the Tyrone countryside, there’s nothing he can’t turn a funny eye to. Whether it is accidentally getting his tweets read out in Stormont, becoming the best extra ever on Game of Thrones or having 2 mini strokes, Terry consistently delivers. 

His consistent performances have been noticed by some of Northern Ireland's biggest names and in 2015 he was invited to open for Patrick Kielty on his sold out “Help” tour. From there he went on to tour with Tim McGarry on his 2016 show, then became a regular fixture on Jake O’Kane’s sold out tours. Terry has opened for Jake on his last three tours, performing across Northern Ireland to sold-out audiences in Ireland’s largest theatres including Belfast’s Waterfront Hall and the iconic Grand Opera House. Terry has made several radio and television appearances, most notably appearing on long running panel show The Blame Game. Appearing alongside regular panellists Tim McGarry, Colin Murphy, Jake O’Kane and Neil Delamere, Terry more than held his own and can now add his name to a list of guests that over the years has included Kevin Bridges, Michael McIntyre, John Bishop and Dara O’Briain.
