Kevin Dorothy wanted to perform on the comedy club stage at the Pavilion Bar in Belfast, Northern Ireland. Unfortunately, he died at age 53 before he got the chance to do so. But his friends made it happen. Monday night, Stephen Mullan took an urn of Dorothy’s ashes to the stage where it sat while he read five years worth of jokes Dorothy had texted to his friends.
"Kevin had a habit of texting the most cringe-inducing jokes to all his pals," said another of Kevin's friends, Tom Sweeney.
"I always read them, groaned and deleted them right away - they were awful. Stephen, however, kept them - five years' worth. And that's what the audience was treated to.
"And do you know something? Kevin's jokes weren't that awful after all on hearing Stephen deliver them.
"Nobody had seen anything like it. You hear about comedians dying on stage. Well, Kevin jumped the gun."
As they say, no one appreciates an artist during his lifetime. -via Arbroath
