Best Of Irish Comedy (Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Saturday 27 August 2011

This showcase of Irish comedy, presented by Gavin Haynes is definitely worth a few of your earth pounds. The comedians alternate so it is inevitably a mixed bag; however, the night is a winner, as new emerging talents are given a platform alongside more seasoned comedians who keep the crowd satisfied while novices learn the ropes. Colin Murphy’s warm wit has the audience in fits, while Andrew Stanley has them like putty in his hands. The jokes take advantage of the material: Ireland – meaning that despite their originality, they can feel cliché at times. However, when they get it right, this show hits the spot for a night of comedy.

The Stand Comedy Club III & IV, 5 – 28 Aug, 6.05pm (7.20pm), £8.00 – £10.00, fpp47.
