COMEDY REVUE | By Jim Russell & Tiger von Pagel
Directed by Madison Claire Rice
Mar 15, 2019 – Mar 17, 2019
The audience are “mourners” at an Irish funeral for a poor fellow named Paddy who met his maker, with cast members mixed in with the audience members. The show is a raucous musical comedy revue featuring funny eulogies, emotional breakdowns, drunken confrontations, Irish drinking songs, etc.
During the show, “Paddy”, the dead guy in the coffin, turns out to have only been very, very drunk – not dead. It was another man that got run over by the beer truck. His wife, who is about to inherit his fortune, realizes that he is alive before anyone else, and strangles him to death while pretending to mourn over his body and singing Too Ra Loo Ra Loo – a well-known Irish lullaby.
