An Evening of Economics, Comedy and Current Events

“David McWilliams might have trained as an economist but his true vocation is as a star of vaudeville.” - The Irish Times

What is (and isn’t funny) about economics? Economist, best-selling author and international broadcaster David McWilliams returns to the Irish Arts Center to bring together some of the world’s leading economists, financial analysts and media commentators with some of the funniest, sharpest comedians from Ireland and the U.S. for an entertaining exploration of Ireland, European and U.S. economics and other contemporary issues.

Political Cabaret 3.0 follows on the success of two sold-out series featuring special guests Jim O’Sullivan, Colm O’Regan, Eddie Brill, Carmen Lynch, Steven Rattner, and Colin Quinn.

David McWilliams is a journalist and broadcaster and one of Ireland’s leading economic commentators. He is the bestselling author of The Pope’s Children, The Generation Game, and Follow the Money and has a weekly column in the Sunday Business Post and the Irish Independent. Prior to his media career he spent 10 years working at UBS and the Banque Nationale de Paris.
