A St. Paddy's Day Comedy


Swamp Radio presents Irish storyteller Derek Coghlan's one man comedy show, I'll Give You A Day, on Friday, March 18 and Saturday, March 19 at  8:00 PM in the grand ballroom at the Omni Jacksonville Hotel, 245 Water Street in Downtown Jacksonville.

"The show is about a man who grew up in the middle of nowhere in the middle of Ireland, who emigrated to America with no idea what he was doing, or where he was going, or what he was going to do once he got there," says Coghlan. "The play focuses on emigration, culture shock, small southern towns, guilt, unemployment, lunacy, and the fabulous assortment of wonderfully odd people he meets along the way."

"Derek has been an audience favorite since he set foot onstage of the Florida Theatre during our first year," says Swamp Radio host and producer Ian Mairs. "It takes a special set of skills to hold an audience's attention in a one on one setting, Derek gets the audience to connect to his stories from the get-go. The evening is hilarious, provocative and touching."

Tickets for the show ($20-$25) are available at swampradiojax.com or can be purchased via Eventbrite. Seating is limited and pre-sale is strongly encouraged.
