This week in Ireland we celebrate the undead with the annual “Dublin Zombie Walk”, and to commemorate this wonderful day we here at Humourisms got our resident cartoonist, Rob Stears, to go wild on the topic of the “living-impaired”. Enjoy…

Humourisms own Damon Blake and George Fox present their featured sketch from last weeks “The Late Late Late Show” Podcast, where Damon manages to get a one on one interview with Dark Knight Rises director, Christopher Nolan.
Damon Blake is a comedy maker and tea-drinker. He likes comic books and hurting people’s feelings. He’s the Uncle Ben to the bitter loners of Humourisms, ie, his death will motivate them on to greater things.You can find him on Twitter @Damon_Blake writing jokes and crying.
George Fox is a Comedian/ Writer based In Dublin, Ireland. He can be seen performing live at numerous venues across Ireland. Follow him on Twitter or Facebook to find out dates for upcoming shows. He does not know what Christopher Nolan actually sounds like.
One of Ireland’s most recognizable comedy faces, Ardal O’Hanlon talks to Jon Hozier-Byrne for the University Observer about life after Dougal, national identity, and how he saved Irish stand up
It’s very early for Ardal O’Hanlon, his voice harsh, almost caustic; “It’s very early for me, on a Saturday.” Having stirred him from his well-earned sleep to talk to us, we begin with the easy questions; as the founder of the International Comedy Cellar, what does he feel is his legacy to Irish comedy? O’Hanlon seems surprised, but immediately shakes the dust off his voice, and responds with profound excitement; “Myself and three other fellas – Barry Murphy, Kevin Gildea, Dermot Carmody – we were a sketch troupe at the time called Mr. Trellis. Yeah, we just stumbled upon that room really, we used to go and see bands in there and we just though that was a suitable sized room to try and kick-start some kind of comedy scene.” Continue reading →
Our friend and compatriot George Fox has recently won the coveted Golden Toilet Duck Award, which is like the Oscar for Irish comedians, and we’re very proud of him. He’s going to be famous soon, so to get you all ready, Humourisms proudly presents … Five Fun Facts about George Fox!
1. George Fox’s real name is George ‘Foxxy’ Inferno
Did you think Fox was his actual surname? You poor, misguided fool. A surname like that is not given, it’s earned. It has been scientifically proven that when George Fox comes into contact with a female, the probability of orgasm slowly approaches one. His other pseudonyms include ‘Captain Physical Magnetism’, ‘L’explosion de pantaloon’, and ‘Sex’. He’s an attractive man, is what I’m saying.
Like a Scrooge who didn’t get the point of the three ghosts at all, Damon Blake has his usual heart-warming take on the season of families getting together and celebrating the fact that they’re all still related.
With the Irish continuing to emigrate and getting married overseas or alternatively finding a foreign bride/groom on home turf, the traditional family dinners at Christmas have changed significantly over the years. Where once they were dour mirror images of a Norman Rockwell painting, now they’re more like the promotional photo from a university open day pamphlet.
Like this, but the opposite.
Today George Fox gives us a rundown of the most embarrassing examples of human beings, at their most comfortable.
With the winter arriving and the cold weather nipping at our extremities like a deranged drunk girl in a nightclub trying to get all her female mates to dance to “Single Ladies” because “fuck it! We ARE single ladies!”, now seemed as good a time as any to look at the many ways in which we can try and stave off the cold. My first stop was supposed to be “Adult Pyjamas”, but what I was visually assaulted with, was a tirade of images so shocking and yet sublime, as to make the rest of my journey a moot point. Clearly this very behaviour in itself MUST be documented, and so I took it upon myself to dive, dignity first, into the world of……..
THE VERY WORST OF ADULTS IN PYJAMAS
The “Overly Possessive Boyfriend” Pose:
The “Oh My God, Is That A Shadow Or….No, No It Couldnt Be…Could it?” Pose.
