The Ulster Hall was buzzing last Friday night as local comedian Micky Bartlett was in great spirits (as usual) to be performing at home for his biggest show yet.
After having sold out shows in Australia, America and all over Europe, this was a gig not to be missed. Hot off a month-long run at the infamous Edinburgh Fringe Festival, Micky Bartlett was also amongst comedic geniuses including Adam Kay and Iain Stirling at the biggest showcase in the UK for comedy and theatre.
From his Belfast performance in the Waterfront Studio in October 2018 to an intimate crowd of 300 people, we were proud to host one of the best homegrown talents in his new smash hit national tour ‘Love It!’; this time in the iconic Ulster Hall to a sold-out audience of 900. As a rising star in the stand-up comedy world, Ulster Hall truly is where legends are made.
A huge milestone in Bartlett’s career
A man in his 30s, Micky represents the millennial cohort at its finest, talking avocados, roguish travel tales and ‘getting a real job’. What adds to his stand up is the uplifting chats about growing up in Lurgan and current affairs; let’s just say, the DUP don’t get off lightly and he doesn’t leave out the hot comedy topic Brexit. Bartlett also touches on his eventful journeys around the globe; from Glasgow to the Middle East, there’s never a dull moment!
There was laughing until your belly hurt, heckling the ‘front rowers’ and the recognition that Micky Bartlett is a natural born performer with those 2ft air jumps.
What he openly declares is that the audience will not go home having learnt something new or with a change of perspective but rather seeing the funny side in most situations; as Micky puts it “every cloud and all that”.
Bartlett’s easy charm, consistently funny and well delivered high-brow/low-brow humour and everything in between had the floor of the Ulster Hall on their feet in applause.
Micky played his biggest headline gig yet and the crowd “loved it”
If you missed this show don’t worry, we’re bringing him back for another show of laughter; Micky will be returning to Ulster Hall in October 2020.
