For one night only, Dara Ó’Briain and his team from The Panel are coming together for a last hurrah in a not to be missed show.
Having missed the chance to make a final show when he left in 2007, Ó’Briain is taking this one last opportunity to host his favourite interview and comedy programme live on the Vicar Street stage.
The Panel was a highly successful topical chat show on RTÉ that blended comedy with current affairs. It began in 2003 and was hosted by Ó’Briain until 2006. It was nominated three times for the Best Entertainment Show IFTA and featured panellists such as Ed Byrne, Mairéad Farrell, Colin Murphy and Neil Delamere.
The show was distinguished from other shows of a similar format by the absence of games, point scoring or rounds and its focus on comedy rather than serious discussion or analysis of events contributed to it being one of RTÉ’s most successful programmes until its last series in 2011.
Dara Ó’Briain has had huge success since his years presenting The Panel. Apart from his hugely successful stand-up career, where he has toured all around the UK and Ireland as well as presenting Live at the Apollo, Ó’Briain has also appeared in many television programmes in the UK such as BBC2’s Mock the Week and QI. He is a presenter of the BBC2 astronomy programme Stargazing Live and of the mathematics programme Dara Ó’Briain: School of Hard Sums on Dave.
This special once off show is guaranteed to provide a memorable night of stand-up, chat and guests. It takes place at 7:30pm on Tuesday 25th February at Vicar Street.
