She has a bright future ahead of her!
One Irish girl has delivered one of the best comedy sketches we’ve seen this year.
Emmie O’Neill from Cabra performed the monologue at the Helix a few weeks ago – complete with the full “brutal” communion dress too!
Emmie’s dance teacher encouraged her to do the poem up on stage and she had the crowd in absolute stitches.
She got the laughs going from the very first line:
“I was makin’ me Holy Communion…”
“Emmie’s stage school teacher, Sonya Johnson from Gotta Dance Stage School, gave me the sketch in January and asked me what did I think of it for Emmie,” Emmie’s mam told Independent.ie.
“I seriously had my reservations because she’s never done any acting, just dancing and singing.
“Myself and Philip couldn’t get over her show in the helix, she got such an amazing reaction from the crowd. She had them in the palm of her hands and she loved every minute of it.”
