After performing a hugely successful debut live podcast show at Gorey Little Theatre, local podcast Paper Tuesdays is returning to the Gorey Little Theatre stage by popular demand for round two on Friday 22nd April with another bumper packed show…
Friends and podcasters Marc Halpin and Michael Dwyer are looking forward to bringing their latest form of entertainment to the stage after their debut Christmas Special 2021.
Speaking to Wexford Weekly, 50% of Paper Tuesdays, Michael Dwyer, outlined what the night promises for the audience “last Christmas, we had a great night of entertainment. Our guests were so willing to share their insights through unscripted conversation. They were also up for having a laugh with Gorey trivia, games, quizzes drawn up by the other 50% of Paper Tuesdays, Marc Halpin”.
Speaking to Wexford Weekly, Marc Halpin outlined what’s in store for the audience:
“On 22nd April, we have a cracking line up. Boxers Niall ‘Basil’ Kennedy and Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan will give us their take on how they have found professional boxing. A Gorey legend, Basil has been so successful in climbing up the ranks of boxing and he has done amazing work for mental health campaigns. He really is a local hero. Corkman Gary ‘Spike’ O’Sullivan has gained a huge following for his rise to professional success too.
“We’ll be exploring much more than just the world of pro boxing. Ireland and Leinster star Shane Byrne had an illustrious rugby career. It’s going to be great to sit down with a true legend and hear some tales about his iconic hairstyle, personal experience with professional rugby squads and the Lions’ tour. He might be from Aughrim but he has strong North Wexford roots and we’ll celebrate them on the night.”
“Paper Tuesdays is a big believer in the power of community. We’re both involved in Gorey and Castletown through GAA. On the night, we’ll honour the many characters that make an area unique through a panel discussion with two fantastic characters that make Gorey and North Wexford that bit special. Fab O’Brien and James Flood will revisit the Saipan incident from the 2002 soccer World Cup. Was Roy Keane right to leave or did Mick McCarthy do his best? We’ll get to the bottom of that famous controversy.
Show director and local drummer Conor Moore of Sound Out Rhythm explained how “Paper Tuesdays live shows are basically a live discussion on the stage.”
“The lads have a natural chemistry that made me instantly fall in love with the podcast during the very first lockdown. The lads and I formed a sponsorship deal around 15 months ago. Since then we’ve been bouncing ideas off one another.
“Throughout my drumming career, I’ve gained insights into the work that goes into making memorable shows for audiences. Now I can bring that experience to help bring some professional structure to the lads’ creativity. This live podcast show is a great feat to my producing experience. We all work very well as a team.”
“Paper Tuesdays has gone from strength to strength. Over time, we’ve seen that the podcast is really about two friends sharing a conversation with whoever wants to join in on the craic. Friday 22nd April is another chance for us to celebrate that experience again.”
“For the past two years, Paper Tuesdays has been a home for plenty of laughs as well as deep discussion of everything and anything. We’ve used our YouTube and audio platforms to share conversations between ourselves while also chatting with some really interesting people. We owe so much to our producer, Shane Halpin, and former producer Robbie Dunne. Their expertise gives us the freedom to express ourselves and have a laugh. We can’t wait to bring another sublime show back to Gorey Little Theatre on 22nd April.”
