Fri 22 Sept, 8pm
MC Chris Kent with Andrea Farrell, Joanne McNally, Deirdre O’Kane and PJ Gallagher.
MC for your evening, ladies and gentlemen, is Corkonian maestro, Mr. Chris Kent, who stormed the Edinburgh Fringe this August with his superb new solo show. Chris is joined by one of Irish comedy’s brightest new talents, Andrea Farrell, and Republic of Telly star Joanne McNally. But that’s not all, we round the evening off with the delights of Gogglebox maven Deirdre O’Kane and the effervescent and hilarious PJ Gallagher.
Sat 23 Sept, 7pm
MC Karl Spain with Alison Spittle, Fred Cooke, Deirdre O’Kane, and Bernard O’Shea.
This is a cracker of a gig. Call us mad but we’ve put Karl Spain in charge of proceedings. You may not have come across Alison Spittle yet, but you’re about to: she’s only gone and gotten her very own sitcom on RTÉ, launching in autumn. Fred Cooke adds his signature manic zaniness to the mix, while Deirdre O’Kane combines buckets of charm with sparkling wit. Leaving us on a high is Bridget and Eamon star, the inimitable Bernard O’Shea.
Sun 24 Sept, 7pm
MC Barry Murphy with Alison Spittle, Neil Delamere and Lords of Strut
Close out this stellar weekend of comedy safe in the capable hands of Barry Murphy (Apres Match, Irish Pictorial Weekly). Sparkling newcomer Alison Spittle will be joined by Irish comedy heavyweight Neil Delamere. And who else to see out the evening but Britain’s Got Talent wunderkinds – the Rebels’ own! – Lords of Strut!
