Ireland’s top all-female comedy singing sensations, The Nualas, are coming to the 11th Annual Skerries Soundwaves Festival with their fabulous new show – the first ever comedy event to grace our much-loved music and arts festival!
In a world where pop stars think nothing of singing in their underwear, The Nualas buck the trend by sporting proper yet unbelievably glamorous, and shiny, stage attire. Expect original self-penned numbers, scintillating vocal harmony, ambitious choreography and a night packed solid with craic, laughter, tears, and chat (not necessarily in that order).
The Nualas were originally formed in a Dublin kitchen in May 1995, when Susan Collins, Anne Gildea and Tara Flynn got together over the leftovers at a party. Their mutual love of food, comedy and singing inspired them to form a trio and book their first 10 minute slot at Dublin’s famous club, The Comedy Cellar. They brought the house down and as they crawled out of the comedy rubble that night they knew they were destined for great things.
During their following seven years together The Nualas completed six total-sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival and extended seasons in theatres in London, Dublin and New York. The New York Times described their work as ‘wackily original’ while The Scotsman simply declared, “Genius. Kill to get a ticket.”.
In 2011 The Nualas reformed, launching to great acclaim on The Late Late Show with their insightful song ‘Yummy Mummy Recession Blues’. They went on to storm festivals and venues alike, playing to packed audiences and reaping unanimous critical praise as they went – and now it is our turn in Skerries, following hot on the heels of their 2014 stint at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!
You’ll hear Nuala favourites like ‘Manolo’ and ‘Sexy Farm Song’ alongside fabulous all-new classics, such as ‘Aren’t Model Ladies Lovely’ and ‘Jesus, Mary, and Joseph, Why Am I So Fat?’.
All of this in the wonderful venue that is Raffs on the Corner (65 Church Street, Skerries, Co. Dublin), on Sunday September 21st, from 8 p.m. Tickets are €12. This show is for adults.
