"AN Irishman, an half-empty bottle of Jameson Irish whiskey and a pack of cards can be found on the top floor of Elephant and Wheelbarrow throughout the comedy festival. There will probably be a good-sized crowd up there too, waiting to witness Paddy McCullagh’s cheat tips for poker, watch his dice tricks or learn how to win the old game Over the Barrel. If you’re late you’ll be subjected the sharp edge of his tongue, with quips like: "Can I get you something, like a watch?’’. If you’re silly enough to talk during the act it’ll be "Where did you learn to whisper, in a helicopter?” The cheery-faced card-shuffling king has that wonderfully sarcastic tone that comes naturally to the Irish, and his relaxed banter with the audience and dry humour while he performs his routine even keeps those non-card players entertained. Between shots of whisky (he shares if you participate!) there’s story-telling, laughter, tricks is a kind of roughness but that is part of this show’s charm."
