Newry comedian Darren Matthews is Fighting Fit with new live stand-up show

Comedian Darren Matthews is back with new stand-up show Fighting Fit

COMEDIAN Darren Matthews is back with a new stand-up show for 2019. The follow-up to last year's Whiskey and Ginger Male, which the Newry man toured in Asia and the southern hemisphere, Fighting Fit is about 'helping yourself by helping others'.

Come along to the Green Room at Belfast's Black Box on Tuesday July 30 to hear tales of doing comedy shows for people who speak English as a second language and trying not to get knocked out while raising some cash for a worthy cause, while also dealing with the realities of mental health in Ireland and deciding what to do with yourself in your 30s.

Find out what happens when the travel stories end and how to help your mental health the only way young men here know how to... by picking a fight.

"No fighting takes place on the night, hopefully" clarifies Matthews.

"It's all in the past. Like disposable income and affordable housing."
