THE legendary comic duo D’Unbelievables, Pat Shortt and Jon Kenny, are delighted to announce that they will be reuniting for a one-off nationwide tour titled ‘One Hell Of A Do’!
D’Unbelievables enjoyed almost cult status in their heyday with their high-energy live shows travelling around Ireland entertaining many with glimpses inside the surreal, slightly creepy and downright hilarious side of Irish rural society. D’Unbelievables return during an increasingly crazy period of Ireland’s history and with dates booked in Tullamore and all over the country they are sure to delight both dedicated fans and first-time audiences alike.
Originally formed in the late ‘80s in Limerick, Jon Kenny and Pat Shortt created their sometimes scandalous, always uproarious on-stage characters in D’Unbelievables to wickedly echo those to be seen on every street corner and in every pub in Ireland. After touring extensively all over Ireland for almost a decade both men went their separate ways in 2000, exploring independent careers in TV, movies and music. Up until now, a comeback was usually given a “never say never” response when either Pat or Jon was asked, but they both now feel the time is right.
“We have met up regularly over the past few years and have often thought seriously about bringing all these wild characters back to life,” says Jon. “We both felt that now was the time, and we can’t wait. It’s going to be great – hard work, but great!” And Pat chimes in, “The show is a high energy act and we’re both getting on so if we were ever going to do it, we had to do it now! We are both very excited about it and we are having great craic rehearsing together again!”
Watch out Ireland, D’Unbelievables will be coming to a stage near you soon! They play Tullamore Court Hotel on April 15 and April 16.
