Celeb Dara Ó Briain was spotted drinking at a Plymouth pub last night (May 13). Best known for his stand-up comedy and hosting shows like Mock the Week and The Panel, the comedian stopped off for a pint at the Dolphin on the Barbican after performing at the Pavilions.
He’s been touring his brand new show So… Where Were We? which was put on hold in March 2020 due to the pandemic. It is the first tour since his 2018 show The Voice of Reason, which was so popular that it lasted for two years, performing 180 shows across 20 countries.
Following his performance in Plymouth, fans took to Twitter to praise the show.
One person said: “Great show tonight in Plymouth, thank you!”
While someone else added: “I laughed so hard I cried tonight, then I just cried. Then laughed again. It was a beautiful show, thank you so much.”
A third also said: “I wept through your personal story tonight. I’m so pleased it had a happy outcome.”
According to his website, Dara said he was “ready for a break” after his previous tour but would now like to “apologise for saying that.” He is now back and ready to “never stop” again following the nearly two year long break as a result of Covid.
His website says: “He’s back on tour, and he will never stop again, because that’s clearly what caused all this trouble. Instead, in his new show So, Where Were We? Dara will hardly mention the last year and a half, because, who wants to hear about that, but will instead fire out the usual mix of stories, one-liners, audience messing, and tripping over his words because he is talking too quickly, because he’s so giddy to be back in front of a crowd.”
