POLICE ACADEMY'S Sgt. Motor Mouth and actor Des Kehoe will perform in Carlow next month as part of two one-man show line-ups at the George Bernard Shaw Theatre.
The one-man sound effects machine that is Michael Winslow will be sure to draw riotous laughs from the Carlow audience.
As one of America's most loved comedians and best known as Sgt. Motor Mouth Jones in the highly successful Police Academy films, his repertoire includes barking dogs, squishing soggy sneakers, jets roaring, spine tingling scratches from a chalkboard, radio noises, guitars screaming, cell phones, and so much more.
Michael, a master of vocal gymnastics, can imitate over a thousand sound effects using his voice alone. His show will take place on February 6 at 8 p.m.. Tickets cost €22 or €19 with a concession.
After his successful nationwide tour performing this adaptation from the John B. Keane's 'Letters' series, Des Keogh, one of the Ireland's most loved actors, brings his highly successful and award-winning show ' The Love-Hungry Farmer' to the George Bernard Shaw Theatre, Carlow on Saturday, 2 February, at 8 p.m..
This firm favourite one-man play, adapted for the stage from John B. Keane's best-selling book: Letters of a Love-Hungry Farmer, has toured around the world receiving much praise and earning Des a Best Actor Award at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2004.
Set in rural Ireland in the 1950s, it recounts the story of John Bosco McLane whom we learn as the play unfolds is of an ' indeterminate age' and according to his own assessment 'past his best' and seemingly still a virgin.
McLane's amorous ventures run from the comical to the heartbreaking. McLane avails of the services of professional matchmaker Dicky Mick Dicky O'Connor to help find him someone but this task proves painful and difficult in such a secluded community.
