Irish comedian and hugely popular host of the topical show Mock the Week (BBC2), Dara O Briain is releasing his debut DVD, Live at the Theatre Royal. Following a hugely successful sell out tour across the UK and Ireland earlier in the year, Dara performed the grand finale for two nights in London’s West End, at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane, which received record breaking audience figures.
The smash hit show, in which Dara muses on subjects as diverse as driving lessons, baguettes and the Milky Bar Kid, can now be bought on DVD for the first time, and has exclusive extra clips including Dara’s storming set on BAFTA nominated, Jack Dee Live at the Apollo, a drunken commentary between fellow comedian Ed Byrne and Dara himself as well as an interview with a former Milky Bar Kid.
Following the sell out tour earlier in the year, Dara has been extremely busy. Most recently he has been hosting Turn Back Time on BBC 2 and is currently the hugely popular host of Mock the Week which is now in its third series on BBC 2. He also appeared in the BBC 2 re-creation of Jerome K Jerome's Three Men in a Boat, which featured Gryf Rhys Jones and Rory McGrath and received record ratings of 4 million viewers. Other television appearances include a memorable debut on Parkinson (ITV1), Friday night with Jonathan Ross (BBC1), a fourth hilarious appearance as guest host on Have I Got News For You (BBC 1) and presenter of the Last Laugh for BBC 3 - (the largest comedy script writing competition in history).
