Irish comic and Philadelphia favorite Joey Callahan will headline an evening of comedy at the historic Bucks County Playhouse, March 18 at 8 pm.

A frequent guest on such shows as “The Jay Leno Show” and “The Rik Turner Show,” Callahan has had a successful career that spans the screen and stage. He is also an accomplished comedy writer, placing on the national bestseller list with his book “If Women Ran Things.” As a stand-up comic, he is seen regularly on Comedy Central, Fox TV, and ESPN’s “The Lighter Side of Sports.” He has been hailed by the Philadelphia Inquirer as, “one of the most clever young comics on the comedy club scene today.”

Philadelphia native Ed McGonical, who frequently appears with Callahan, will be the opening act on March 18. McGonical is a seasoned comic veteran who has opened for such comedians as Gilbert Gottfried and Colin Quinn. His humor is described as topical and observational, frequently making cracks on local news items and pop culture. The show will be hosted by Terry Reilly.

This series is part of the Playhouse’s commitment to offer year-round programming at the historic Bucks County venue. Throughout 2016, the Playhouse will offer music, dance and special cultural events programming in addition to its mainstage subscription programming, which begins in May. More details will be announced in the coming weeks. Patrons are advised to visit the Bucks County Playhouse website and social media pages for continuing updates.

Individual tickets in the orchestra section are $15 in advance and $20 at the door.
