Dara O Briain: Craic Dealer
Thursday 20th September 2012
First-class comedian and 2012 BAFTA nominee, Dara O Briain will be releasing his much anticipated brand new stand-up Craic Dealer Live 2012 on DVD and Blu-Ray on 12th November 2012 from Universal Pictures (UK).
Recorded at the illustrious Edinburgh Playhouse in May 2012, Craic Dealer Live 2012 is Dara back doing what he does best. The king of audience interaction returns to the stage where he relishes exchanging ultra rapid fire quips with members of the audience, and delivers witty and daring anecdotes like no other stand up comedian.
The wonderfully erudite O Brain ranges through countless topics from the state of the economy, to married life and Tunnocks tea cakes. His random riffing with the front row and boundless passion for mirth making, coupled with his unique insight into the weird world of comedy and celebrity, once again sees Dara deliver a show of the highest quality, clearly establishing him as one of the UK's finest revered live comedians.
As well as his masterful stand-up work, O Briain's popularity has recently soared and he is now one of the most recognised hosts on our TV screens today. For the last seven years he has hosted the award winning BBC2 topical panel show Mock The Week, and more recently chaired The Apprentice BBC2 spin-off series, The Apprentice You're Fired! and also co-hosted BBC 2'sStargazing Live! alongside Professor Brian Cox.
Other recent TV shows include School Of Hard Sums (DAVE) and Three Men In A Boat with Griff Rhys Jones and Rory McGrath (BBC2). Back in May this year Dara also had the prestige honour of both presenting the 2012 BAFTA TV Awards on BBC ONE as well as being nominated himself in the best Entertainment Performance category, alongside Harry Hill, Alan Carr and Graham Norton.
Dara has also previously released three classic stand-up DVDs, This Is The Show (Universal Pictures UK, 2010), Dara O Briain Talks Funny Live In London (Universal Pictures UK, 2008) and Dara O Briain Live at the Theatre Royal (Universal Pictures UK, 2006) - all of which have also aired on BBC TV as one hour specials.
Dara O Briain: Craic Dealer is an Open Mike Production, released by Universal Pictures (UK) Ltd. Executive producers are Addison Cresswell, Joe Norris, Andrew Beint and Helen Parker with Anthony Caveney producing and Paul Wheeler as director.
