With the huge success of our new 'London Irish Lecture series' with previous guests Niall Breslin and Sinéad Burke, we're delighted to present #3 with special guest Tara Flynn!

Through 2018, we will bring you a diverse and engaging mix of speakers to talk on areas of Irish social, cultural and creative interest.

More 'talks' than lectures, each event will offer the opportunity for engagement and interaction, and an evening of lively conversation and learning.

Our Third special guest is the best-selling writer Tara Flynn, Tara works extensively as an actor and comedian in theatre, radio and TV in Ireland and the UK.

Tara will discuss the topic of shame, focusing on peeling back the ‘Shame Cloak’. Her talk will have elements of her books, Not A Funny Word and Repeal.

Most recently she wrote and performed her one woman show Not a Funny Word to sell-out crowds at the Abbey Theatre’s Peacock space. She came to international attention in 2013 for her satirical video Racist B&B, for which she was named Satirist of the Year at the Swift Satire Festival. She also co-wrote and appeared in the marriage equality campaign PSA Armagayddon with Kevin McGahern.

She did stand up for many years and is a popular host and MC. She’s a core member of Dublin Comedy Improv. Recent TV includes Irish Pictorial Weekly (RTE), Moone Boy (Sky 1), Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle (BBC) and Line of Duty (BBC). She played Miss Fitt in Out of Joint’s All That Fall, directed by Max Stafford-Clark. 

Tara is the author of Irish bestseller You’re Grand: the Irishwoman’s Secret Guide to Life (Hachette Books Ireland 2014) and Giving Out Yards: the Art of Complaint, Irish Style (Hachette). She is a regular contributor to radio & TV discussion panels.
