Lurgan comedian Sean Hegarty, fresh from the Edinburgh Fringe, will be performing a special one-man show on Wednesday, October 1 as part of the Belfast Belly Laughs Comedy Festival.

Ideal for fans of Tim Vine or Milton Jones, Sean’s quick wit and razor sharp delivery is one act you cannot miss.

Sean said: “The Belly Laughs Comedy Festival is getting stronger by the year with acts such as Simon Munnery and Paul Foot on show, so to be a part of it, is something I’ll always be proud of.

“We have some of the best comedians working in the UK, not even in Northern Ireland but from right here in Lurgan.

“Micky Bartlett and Phil McEwan are two of my favourite acts, both offering something different but more than capable of holding their own with some of comedy’s finest.

“To gig with them on a regular basis, makes me want to work harder and get better.”

Sean performs ‘One-Liner Action’ on Wednesday, October 1 in McHughs Bar, Belfast and tickets are available via the Belly Laughs website.

Meanwhile budding comics in Northern Ireland have a chance to enter a prestigious stand up competition as part of the festival.

To enter applicants need to upload a video clip. Successful amateur stand ups will be selected to perform on October 2 in the Black Box.

The Hobgoblin Comedy Award, sponsored by the iconic beer brand, offers the overall winner a £2,000 cash prize as well as other rewards. The local winner will compete for a place at the UK award finals in February 2015 and can win a photo shoot and promotional video.
