Marise Gaughan comes to Hanger Farm Arts Centre for New Forest Comedy Festival
Marise Gaughan comes to entertain at New Forest Comedy Festival. Marise Gaughan is an acclaimed author and stand-up comedian from Dublin who has made appearances on The Comedy Store and The Hollywood Improv stages in Los Angeles.
Her first solo show, Drowning, which recounts her father’s successful suicide attempt and her own unsuccessful one, was performed at the 2019 Dublin Fringe Festival where it was cited for its daring material that is tough to classify. It also garnered recognition with a nomination for the Fringe’s Spirit of Wit Moira Brady Averill Award as well as the First Fortnight Award that rewards works which challenge stigmas related to mental health.
Marise was recognised with the Women’s Irish Network Arts Bursary along with opening for renowned acts like Rob Delaney, Ari Shaffir and Jim Norton on tour.
This show is hosted in association with the New Forest Comedy Festival.
Doors open at Hanger Farm Arts Centre at 19:00 ready for the show starting at 19:30 on Wednesday 14 June 2023.
