Ciarán Dowd, winner of 2018 Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer, is back on stage in London next month.
“Ridiculous and merciless comedy travelogue about a lecherous flashing blade”★★★★ – THE LIST
Following hugely successful runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Soho Theatre, winner of 2018 Edinburgh Comedy Award for Best Newcomer Ciarán Dowd will bring his critically acclaimed show Don Rodolfo back to Soho Theatre for further performances from 2nd to 4th May.
The debut solo show from Ciarán sees him play legendary swashbuckler Don Rodolfo Martini Toyota, a total butthead, a shameless libertine and the greatest swordsman the world has ever seen. The grotesque love child of Don Juan and Don Quixote will take you on a journey through his conquests, his adventures and every stupid thought in his idiot head.
Ciarán is currently developing a narrative project with the BBC and has previously featured on BBC One series Josh, E4’s GameFace and Zapped for UKTV’s Dave. Ciarán also is proud to have made the most guest appearances on Drunk History for Comedy Central.
This year he can be seen in Stephen Merchant’s feature film Fighting With My Family for Film4 and ITV2 series Keith Lemon: Coming in America.
Ciarán has also recently been seen on stage at the Soho Theatre in the new comedy play Chasing Bono from Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais writers of BBC One prison sitcom Porridge, North-East set Beeb comedy The Likely Lads and Central Television comedy-drama Auf Wiedersehen Pet.
He is also a member of the critically acclaimed sketch group Beasts who have made numerous appearances on BBC Radio 4, were nominated for the
Amused Moose Comedy Awards in 2014 and their sell-out shows were among the top reviewed at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
“A happy hour of gleefully Fringey late-night nonsense: nonsense sustained, it should be said, by deceptive quantities of craftsmanship behind all the loopy swordfighting, sweaty singing, liberty-taking crowdplay and parodic storytelling” ★★★★ – THE TIMES
