Eoin Butler: writer, journalist and Mayoman of the Year

Tripping Along The Ledge


My stand-up gig

This was my first and, I’m glad to say, only ever stand-up comedy performance, recorded exactly a year ago today for a Vodafone campaign. I still reckon that, on a minute-by-minute basis, I might actually be the highest grossing comedian of all time. (Eat shit, Seinfeld.) But I’m not in a rush to ever do it again.

    If I’m not mistaken the guy that introduces you there now stars in those annoying Spar ads.

  2. Eoin Says:

    Well, I always knew we were in the presence of greatness that night. I’d just assumed it was me.

  3. KevinD Says:

    This is even more poignant to watch now Colm and JimJim are RIP

  4. Eoin Says:

    Wait, what? Colm and Jim Jim are dead?

  5. KevinD Says:

    Their not dead but they split up professionally.

  6. gueuleton Says:

  7. Eoin Says:

    @ Gueuleton – Well, that’s a relief to hear. What are they up to nowadays then?

  8. Noel Says:

    I hear Colm now goes by the name “Colm”.

    I was pretty impressed actually. The screengrab of the video gives the impression you were going to be reading all your jokes so you definitely raised the bar!
