One of the comedy industry’s best known performers, Georgia-born Reginald D Hunter will take to the stage at Sea Church in Ballycotton for the first time. 

Hunter has performed on some major TV shows, having appeared at Live at the Apollo, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, QI, and Have I Got News For You? Now the UK resident, having moved there over twenty years ago, will be showing the Irish crowds his hilarious sense of humour and warm nature with his happy return to the island.

Finalist of So You Think You Are Funny 1998, Reginald regularly tours the UK and Ireland, and is ready to set stage at this unique Ballycotton setting on the 27th of May. Having first opened in 1835 and located in the fishing village of Ballycotton in East Cork, this carefully selected venue has been converted into a perfect performance space with its breath-taking surroundings.

Hunter has the ability to capture searingly honest observations with charm, and ultimately is the voice of his generation. His most diverse range of subjects had him nominated for numerous awards such as ‘The Edinburgh Comedy Awards Best Newcomer’ in 2002, and also up for the main prize at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards the following year. 

His DVD, ‘Reginald D Hunter Live’ became a top seller in the DVD comedy charts, including his sought after follow up DVD, ‘Reginald D Hunter: In The Midst Of Crackers’.

Voice Magazine have called Hunter “A cerebral comedian with every performative grace in his back pocket”, while the Independent have regarded him as a “Dangerously funny man … he keeps steering the audience into morally challenging territory”

A limited number of tickets are on sale at €33.50 (plus fees) for the 27th of May performance and are available on the Seachurch website at, where doors will open at 8pm, for the 8:30pm show.
