Did someone pull these guys off the street? It’s easy to imagine after watching Irish boys Sean Hegarty and Tom O’Mahoney struggle to get through an hour of stand-up comedy. Hegarty seemed as if he hadn’t prepared enough material, struggling after twenty minutes into a half hour set. O’Mahoney pulled off his routine with confidence and ease, but the jokes were only almost funny, never getting more than a few chuckles out of the audience. The only reason neither completely died on their backsides was because both were pretty likeable, and their charisma saved them from having a completely dismal show. Sadly for these guys, likeability does not a comedy show make, and comedy was mostly lacking here.
