Following his incredibly successul 2022 Canadian Tour, Just For Laughs is thrilled to announce that Dara Ó Briain is returning to Canada with a brand new live stand-up show. ‘So… Where Were We?’.
At the end of his highly successful last tour ‘Voice Of Reason’, Dara had performed the show 180 times over 2 years and across 20 countries, from Auckland to Reykjavik, from Moscow to New York; and by March 2020 he was ready for a break! He would now like to apologise for saying that and will never wish for anything like that again.
Ó Briain’s last tour of Canada was originally scheduled for March 2020, then 2021 and it finally happened in 2022, where he received standing ovations every night and left audiences clammoring for more! So we listened, and are excited to bring you this master storyteller with an all new show!
Yes, he’s back on tour, and he will never stop again, because that’s clearly what caused all this trouble, oh, and he ate a bat. Instead, in his new show ‘So…Where Were We?’, Dara will hardly mention the last year and a half, because, Jesus, who wants to hear about that, but will instead fire out the usual mix of stories, one-liners, audience messing, and tripping over his words because he is talking too quickly, because he’s so giddy to be back in front of a crowd.
