WHEN IRISH EYES ARE LAUGHING Sunday Tribune 21 October 2007.
Joy From The Hood, Dean Scurry. In 2005 Des Bishop did a series of comedy workshops in Ballymun and made a television program called Joy in the Hood. Three of the participants went on to create the House of Fun club in Ballymun. One of the three, Dean Scurry, has performed with many Irish comedy luminaries . . . and he didn't even make the final cut of the show.
Had you thought about doing comedy before? "I'd never thought of doing stand-up, but I've always been really into taking the piss out of life. I met Chris Rock in New York and I kind of realised this guy is just normal. He came in an Adidas track suit and did a halfhour set and I was blown away by how simple and down to earth he was. That's what intrigues me and keeps me going. I like to think that's what my comedy is about. I have so many funny ideas and stories and situations in my head and I just want to share them with people."
How's the Irish comedy scene? "I've played with Ardal O'Hanlon, Tommy Tiernan and Des. The scene's great. And now with MySpace, Bebo and YouTube you can throw an idea up and have five hundred people look at it. They can get an idea of where I'm coming from from YouTube and then they might come to a gig?" I suppose you were nervous for your first gig? "Nah. My first gig was amazing. And I went .. Ardal O'Hanlon."
Sometimes I wonder how anyone lets a mad thing like me on stage with a mic..
