FOLLOWING a number of sold out shows throughout the year, popular comedian and award-winning mimic Oliver Callan will be visiting Kavanaghs in Portlaoise on Friday July 12.

His hugely anticipated new radio show, Callan’s Kicks, began last May on RTE Radio 1.

Callan’s routines are never far away from controversy, having raised the ire of politicians, sports stars and media celebrities in recent years. The Monaghan-born comic is also known for his sharply topical routines and outspoken interviews.

Callan is known for featuring on Nob Nation, Green Tea and The Saturday Night Show. He rose to fame during the 2000s when his daily Nob Nation slots aired on RTÉ Radio. His Green Tea creation on RTÉ Radio 1 has been described by The Irish Times as “essentially an extended version of Nob Nation”. Nob Nation and Green Tea parody political, social and cultural personalities, with Callan performing as the characters featured on the show.

His radio broadcasts have led to the release of regular podcasts, several CDs and appearances on prime time television programmes. Visit www.kavanaghsportlaoise.com for more information.
