You may not have heard of Manny Man but we can guarantee that young people have!
Based on his series of books and YouTube videos, John D Ruddy brings Manny Man and the History of Ireland to the stage. Watch Syn and Oppy as they plough through Irish history with illustrated cut-outs and craziness!
From the Ice Age all the way to Ireland today and all in less than 90 minutes, with the same tongue-in-cheek humour Manny Man is known for. When it comes to fun history, Manny Man is your only man!
John D Ruddy’s Manny Man history videos are a Youtube Phenomenon, which currently have almost 23 million views. His channel has over 2 million views on its Irish History videos and over 190,000 subscribers (that’s the most important thing in terms of Youtube). Collins Press printed two very successful Manny Man books which focus on Irish History, namely The History of Ireland and Revolutionary Ireland 1916 – 1923.
John Ruddy is a former National School teacher and a full time actor/facilitator.
