Omagh will be laughing back again at Bogan’s tonight


OMAGH Laughs Back returns with a packed line-up of talent from both North and South tonight, (Friday) in Bogan’s Bar.

This month, Niamh Marron returns to her adopted town of Omagh.


Niamh is steadily rising as one of the most talked-about comedians on the circuit with her edgy material and spitfire jokes. Having performed in Omagh on numerous occasions, Niamh cannot wait to return and perform for an audience that she describes as “the best comedy crowd in the country”.


Support on the night comes from Pauric Gallagher and Mary Flanigan.  Pauric Gallagher is a stand up comedian based in Letterkenny, winner of the 2017 Garage Laughs Back Competition at the Garage Theatre Monaghan and a finalist in the 2015 Forbidden Fruit Comedy Competition.
Mary Flanigan has been gigging for three years, making a name for herself in the comedy circuit across Britain and Ireland.

She was a semi-finalist in the Funny Women 2016 awards, has been featured on BBC Radio Ulster and has written for Late Licence on BBC NI.
As always, organisers Conor Keys and Chris Bowes encourage local people to give stand-up comedy a go.

Conor said, “Anyone from the area will be given a seven minute slot and we would love people to try it, regardless of their age or background. Funny is funny and it comes in all shapes and sizes.”

This Friday sees Fintona man Mark McCarney take to the stage for the first time in Tyrone and organisers hope that people will come along and show their support. The whole show will be hosted by the resident MC, Conor Keys and is a night not to be missed.
