A regular at clubs all over Ireland & the UK, having recently performed at Vicar Street as part of the Vision series, Aideen McQueen returns to Whelan’s to open the show this Monday. Ahead of the show, we asked her the 10 questions we need the answer to. Take a look at the answers below and then snap up the last remaining tickets here.

1. One liner?

"Your Mamma's so fat... We're genuinely worried about her, perhaps she should join a 12 step group like Overeaters Anonymous." - Maria Bamford

2. Guilty Pleasure?

The Sound of Music, even though I have it on DVD and Amazon Prime, I still have to watch it when it comes on TV.

3. A comedian you enjoy watching?

My favourite comic at the moment is Dylan Moran. I didn’t watch him for years, then watched Monster again and was sucked back into his genius descriptions.

4. Tell us something about your hometown?

The first flushing toilet In Ireland was installed in Kilkenny in 1912 in anticipation of King George's visit to the "city".

5. Who would play you in a film?

If Taylor swift put on three stone and got a prosthetic nose & chin she could have a stab at playing me!

6. Favourite biscuit?

Digestives covered in butter - 1980's comfort food.

7. Karaoke song?

You're So Vain by Carly Simon. Point at everyone when you sing to imply its about them... so much fun! (P.S. It's about Warren Beatty but he's only been at my karaoke once).

8. Spirit animal?

Don't have one but several people have told me I've the same personality as the "Spanish Lady Dancing" emoji - 💃🏼. I took it as a compliment at first but now I realise it means I'm very three dimensional!

9. Hangover cure?

My best hangover cure was to take a drink the next day, that works for about a year, then you need to go to rehab! Now I don't drink but another good one is to take 200ml of water with Dioralyte, two Solpadeine and a Coke.

10. You have to change your name, what do you change it to?

I would change my name to Gigi, that sounds like a stopper who can read.
