Rory O’Keeffe: When in Rome

Last year Rory O'Keeffe moved to Rome. Why? He still doesn't know. From playing a priest as an extra in a Sorrentino film to interviewing graffiti artists for work, the stand-up comedian recounts his own surreal version of La Dolce Vita. Features unjustified stereotypes, justified stereotypes, and pasta.

‘Funny, charming, and thought-provoking.’ Bunbury Magazine ★★★★

‘This is a fascinating show. For those in the market for something a bit clever, endearing and sweet, don’t pass it up.’
Shortcom ★★★★

'Sharp, intriguing and entertaining. A natural comedian' - The Upcoming ★★★★

“His jokes keep up with his own frenetic pace. Make no mistake: this is a downright clever show. As someone who loathes seeing a punchline coming, I might as well have been blindfolded in the dark. ” ★★★★ Edinburgh 49+3

“Acutely well-observed and cringingly funny, this is comedy for a post-recession graduate generation” Fest ★★★★

“Rory O’Keeffe is a refreshing wee marvel." ★★★★ The Mumble

“Acutely well-observed and cringingly funny, this is comedy for a post-recession graduate generation, lumbered with expectations they have nowhere to put and a vague feeling that they might not be up to the task of real life.” Fest ★★★★
