The Folly Announces

The 2 Johnnies

The 2 Johnnies – aka Tipperary duo Johnny B O’Brien and Johnny “Smacks” McMahon, will appear at The Folly Festival 2019, and we are delighted to announce their inclusion, in this year’s lineup!!

As they say themselves, “we are buzzing like an old fridge!”

The 2 Johnnies have hit the Irish Entertainment scene with a bang and have proven to be Ireland’s most favourite comedy duo. Both hailing from Tipperary, Johnny B (O Brien) & Johnny Smacks (McMahon) have won the hearts of the nation with their hugely popular, hilarious comedy sketches and songs that capture the uniquely funny side of all things Irish. It’s been a whirlwind journey so far and they are only just getting started!

Fresh off the back of a nationwide SOLD OUT comedy tour, “GET LOOSE”, where they blew the roof off some of the biggest venues in Ireland, the 2 Johnnies and their live band are bringing a summer show to the highways and highroads of Ireland that delivers a delightful fusion and flavour of the 2 Johnnies entertainment mix …high energy, crowd-rousing & fairly lively experiences are phrases that have been used to describe The 2 Johnnies music performances and this Summer show will be no different.

So the laughs are sorted for The Folly Festival 2019, and we cannot wait to see the boys on stage!!!
