Martin joins a top bill on February 21st. You can purchase tickets at this link. Take a look at his ’10 questions’ below.

Throwing stones at pigeons.

Myself or Ger Staunton.

4. Tell us something about your hometown?

Not many people know that the Canadians tried to invade it in 1929.

5. Who would play you in a film?

Robert Sheehan, it'd be very culturally insensitive but I'm sure he could pull it off.

6. Favourite biscuit?

We're all going to die some day so why focus on biscuits... I do enjoy an occasional chocolate finger though.

7. Karaoke song?

The 7 minute version of How Soon Is Now by the Smiths because I have time to get another pint during the instrumental part.

The humble pigeon, which is why I hate them so much.

9. Hangover cure?

Never stop being drunk.

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

Joanne McNally, it'd really help the career.
