The Irish Comedy Tour takes the party atmosphere of a Dublin pub and combines it with a boisterous, belly-laugh trio. The clover — make that clever — comedians, whose ancestors hail from the Emerald Isle, include Detroit native Derek Richards; Boston-born Mike McCarthy; and New Yorker Jim Paquette.

Audiences howl at Richards’ tales about his mom’s dog, the holidays and dating a stripper. He has appeared on The Bob & Tom Show, XM and Sirius, and The Weather Channel’s Top 10.

McCarthy’s no-holds-barred humor has landed him on Comedy Central and Showtime. The “comedy barbarian,” as he calls himself, takes no prisoners when it comes to poking fun at society’s most sensitive topics.

And finally Paquette, who has fine-tuned his comedy chops across the country as a dueling piano performer, opens the show with riotous original songs that inspire audiences to clap along.

The irreverent trio, which just released a DVD titled Dublin’ Over, has performed at venues across the country.

Seeing this title reminded me of when I was in Ireland in my 20's. We became friends with a local, who drove us around for a few days (which, consequently got him fired from his job, putting him on the dole ((welfare)) ) and he said, with great conviction, "American humor sucks". All this time I thought I was hysterical, turns out not so much.
