Sponsor: A Couple of Blaguards at Proctors

My thanks to A Couple of Blaguards at Proctors for sponsoring Keep Albany Boring this week. A Couple of Blaguards is a comedy about growing up in poverty in Ireland. The show runs September 26 – 28 and October 3 – 5.

From the event page:

Frank McCourt and Malachy McCourt’s A Couple of Blaguards is an autobiographical account of their years growing up in poverty in Ireland.

Though times were tough in Limerick, the tales spun by the brothers McCourt simmer with bittersweet recollections, ferocious humor and a parade of colorful characters: from the priest who warns of sinners’ eyeballs exploding in Hell to the McCourt grandmother who spits on Frank’s unruly Presbyterian hair to tame it.



According to Malachy McCourt: “I think we had more fun than anyone writing and performing Blaguards, which has become an affectionate term for the rowdy, outgoing, and sometimes drinking sort of boys. If you don’t have a good evening, you should have yourself checked to make sure you haven’t died during the day.”

Find out more on the event page and grab tickets for a show this weekend, or next weekend.
