Book Description:

Performance and Identity in Irish Stand-Up Comedy examines the comic tradition of stand-up in and from modern-day Ireland. Using critical analyses of comedians including Tommy Tiernan, Dylan Moran and Maeve Higgins, Susanne Colleary's engaging new book explores the role of stand-up in contemporary culture and examines the role of the staged comic self in performance. This book is suitable for students and scholars of international performance, and general readers interested in the interplay between comedy and society in contemporary cultural thought.
