Micky Bartlett

Blissfully Ignorant

Gilded Balloon Teviot Balcony: 3rd – 28th August

2016 sees Northern Ireland’s most monumental comic Micky Bartlett return to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. He is bringing his new show Blissfully Ignorant to the Gilded Balloon Teviot Balcony from the 3rd to the 28th August at 5.15pm.

Micky Bartlett’s blissful ignorance may be about to run out. Now entering the last year of his twenties he has realised he isn’t prepared for hitting the big three zero. Join him on a journey through his head as he comes to terms with hitting his thirties, and prepares himself for life as a grown up. Well, maybe.

As well as being one of Northern Ireland’s most popular stand-ups Micky starred as a regular panellist on both series of BBC N.I. panel show Monumental. He has also appeared in the BBC’s Sketchy with Diarmuid Corr and in the BBC Radio Ulster show The Blame Game. He has supported big names including Tommy Tiernan and Patrick Kielty, supporting the latter in 2012 on his Home tour which included performing in front of a sold out crowd at Belfast’s Odyssey Arena. This also lead to him performing as warm up for Dave’s One Night Stand, doing so well he ended up featuring on the broadcast version of the show.

What the press have said about Micky Bartlett:

Bartlett is a stand-up natural with a great command of the audience and engaging everyman approach, full of verve… A masterful way of delivering with punch and style… Impressive!”
