Dara Ó Briain brings national tour to Charter Hall

PUBLISHED: 25 November 2022

Colchester Events is delighted to announce that Irish comedian and TV presenter Dara Ó Briain is to perform his brand-new show at Charter Hall, Colchester, on Friday, 16 June 2023!
This will be the first time Dara has brought his tour to the Colchester venue. At the end of his last tour, Dara had performed his show "Voice Of Reason" 180 times, over two years, across 20 countries, from Auckland to Reykjavik, from Moscow to New York – and by March 2020 he was ready for a break! 
Now, he's back on tour in his new show So, Where Were We? Dara will fire out the usual mix of stories, one-liners, audience messing and tripping over his words by talking too quickly, because he's so giddy to be back in front of a crowd.

Cllr Adam Fox, Deputy Leader of Colchester Borough Council, said: “It’s great news that the hugely popular Dara Ó Briain is bringing his tour to the city of Colchester. Charter Hall is fast becoming a ‘must-go’ destination for so many comedians and musicians of international stature and we welcome the opportunities this brings residents to enjoy top-class performances so close to home.”

“If you want a comic who can hold an audience in the palm of his hand for two hours, here’s your man”
The Times
