The Blindboy Podcast Tour

Pavilion Theatre, Saturday 22nd June 2019

Blindboy Boatclub invites you to a live edition of The Blindboy Podcast, in conversation with a soon-to-be-announced guest. Some of his previous live podcasts have been genuinely groundbreaking in terms of long-form interviewing in Ireland. In particular, conversations with the likes of Irish economist David McWilliams, civil rights activist and former MP Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, and author Louise O'Neill have been eye-opening, informative and, at times, devastating.

Blindboy's increased notability away from his band The Rubberbandits (Horse Outside, Dad's Best Friend), has allowed for him to explore wider avenues and create mind-altering brainchildren which can only be described as courageous, yet bonkers. With the number-one selling The Gospel According to Blindboy under his belt and a podcast that has reached over one million listeners in Ireland and internationally, the satirist could single-handedly change the conversation around mental health and the stigma that surrounds it.

Outspoken, informed and empathetic, Blindboy engages his audience with an unusual touch of realism. There is a very authentic feeling of “freedom” Mr Boatclub exhumes which allows his listeners and participants to openly speak their mind without judgement, with an air of belonging encircling the space one finds oneself in when listening to or in the company of Blindboy.

His latest innovative creation – The Blindboy Podcast – does not only tackle mental health issues but reaches further into a wide spectrum of current topics, be it gun laws, feminism, racism or a bit of history. Expect the unexpected.
