The Best Of Irish Comedy (The Stand Comedy Club)

By | Published on Friday 9 August 2013

An end-of-night best-of-the-craic in a toasty function room, anchored by Martin Mor, who compères with great skill, bringing the crowd in and making everyone feel at home. Jarlath Regan presents a set of calm and assuredly humane stand-up about social faux pas and the minutiae of daily life, but without the blundering silliness of most observational comedy. The house is full, almost certainly because of the show-stopping performance of David O’Doherty, who expertly closes proceedings with jokes half the crowd have heard before on telly and want to hear again, and sends us out satisfied. With a changing bill every night, it is a fine and friendly night if you end up in that end of town.

The Stand III, until 25 Aug, 10.25pm.
