Abie Philbin Bowman Returns to Thurles

The last time he was here, it was with his highly acclaimed show, Jesus The Guantanamo Years. The show was a great laugh as the American right wing was put under the spotlight. I would say their ears will be burning as Abie turns the full beam of his absurd sense of humour on them again. This time it’s Sex Lies & the KKK.

On the night that Barack Obama was elected US President, Abie exclusively interviewed the Ku Klux Klan. “I hate the Nazi’s, but I’d love to have interviewed Hitler as the Allied tanks rolled into Berlin” he said. This interview forms the basis of the show, which also takes in homophobic marriage and why the Pope is the perfect Bond Villain among other themes.

Why get angry with the mess certain elements want to make of the world when you can just laugh at them instead. Laughter is Abie’s weapon and he uses it to great effect. We could use a few more people like him these days.

Sex Lies & the KKK is at The Source Arts Centre on Friday 25th March at 8pm. Tickets €14 / €12 concession.
