From Toronto, to London, to Sydney to Galway, Blindboys live podcasts are consistently sold-out affairs where he captivates his audiences in a quietened intimate atmosphere. Drawing from his years of live performance experience, Blindboy can make a crowd of 1200 feel as though they are in a small room with only a handful of others.
He reads from his book, and he speaks with a guest. It is not an interview, but rather an intimate chat which seeks to replicate a private conversation in a public space through the language of theatre.
These live shows are spontaneously endearing and heart-warmingly engaging, there’s usually something in here for everyone to enjoy. Sometimes he may have a guest who is a person with an interesting life story to tell, and other times he might interview a person who is an expert in their field.
Notable past guests are Spike Lee, Bernadette Devlin and authors Kevin Barry and Roddy Doyle.
