Comedy Arts FestivalRESCHEDULED Jake O'Kane: Walks The Line

RESCHEDULED TO SAT 20 MARCH 2021 All existing tickets (for original date of Sat 30 May 2020) are still valid for the new date. If you are not available please request your refund via Eventbrite or advise [email protected] that you would like to donate the cost of your ticket to keep Portico running. Jake O’Kane’s new show, ‘Walks The Line’, sees Northern Ireland’s most popular comic once again cast his caustic eye over the events of the last year. As always, nothing and no-one are beyond attack as Jake continues his sixth year of sell-out tours.

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

Jake’s show is a heady mix of video, photos and general mayhem as he picks apart our dysfunctional society. Once again, Jake will be ably supported by the talented Terry McHugh.  
 
If you’ve already seen Jake perform, you’ll be back for more; if you’ve yet to catch him live, don’t wait too long to book as his shows sell extremely quickly.  
 
Show contains adult reference for 16 +

Presented by David Hull Promotions.

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.
