Pat Shortt’s “I Am The Band” In The Source

Ireland’s best-loved actor comedian Pat Shortt is back in the Source Theatre, Thurles, December 7th next, with his new one-man comedy show, which charts the life of one of his many character ‘Dixie Walsh,’ (Of ‘ Jumbo Breakfast Roll,’ & ‘Where Did My Money Go,’ fame) latter a solo lounge bar musician.

The show takes on the guise of a tribute night to Dixie, where all his peers and friends, (In this case you the audience,) come to celebrate his successful career.

Until now the much loved Dixie Walsh was one of many characters who appeared in Pat’s previous sell out shows. Pat’s well known quirky interpretation of rural Tipperary & other Irish characters will bring to life Dixie’s mother, his teacher and other locals, who queue up to recall their daft & dippy memories of Dixie and his music. Now Dixie comes centre stage to tell his full life story and shares his inimitable style of music with you in Pat’s new show “I Am The Band,” taking a look at life on the back roads between Ireland’s dance halls and a tribute to one of this country’s supposedly true music legends.

NOTE: Not surprisingly, due to high ticket demand, a second date, in the Source Theatre has now been added and tickets can also be obtained for Saturday December 8th.

This is one show not to be missed this Christmas.
