Gráinne Maguire’s One Hour All Night Election Special (Avalon Promotions)

By | Published on Monday 19 August 2013

Gráinne Maguire is campaigning for your vote in this hour of political puns, governmental gags and an actual in-house election. Having moved to London to follow her comedy dreams some years ago, this Irish comedian has since developed a thirst for British politics and uses her knowledge to the fullest in this witty stand-up performance. Fun for everyone from the party member to the last minute voter, this election special aims to reignite your love of democracy by explaining why politicians do what they do, how everything in life can be fought like a voting campaign and what Cherie Blair must be like on a night out. Maguire’s excellent flow and insightful sense of humour make for a very enjoyable show.

Underbelly Bristo Square, until 25 Aug (not 16), 2.45pm.
