Colin Murphy's biggest comedy tour to date 'Whatchamacolin' takes in all corners of Northern Ireland

Comedian Colin Murphy is back on the road with his biggest stand-up tour ever, aptly called ‘Whatchamacolin’.

With his last tour ‘Colinization’ a sell out, and ticket sales for the new 2023 shows disappearing rapidly, there’s no doubt Colin has a considerable following of fans.

The popular stand-up comedian, TV presenter, writer and actor has been an almost permanent fixture on television screens all over Ireland for more than two decades.

Starting out in the early nineties in the Empire Laughs Back Comedy Club and the Queen’s Comedy Club in Belfast, Colin has played the Edinburgh festival many times and all the major comedy festival in the world including Melbourne, Montreal, New York, Dublin and Kilkenny.
