Des Bishop - Grey Matters
The fantasy of everlasting youth dyed with Des’s last purchase of Just for Men over a year ago. Now he is embracing the Grey and letting the wisdom of his years inspire his stand up. Grey Matters tackles the issues confronting Des these days, returning to live in New York, being surrounded by other people’s kids, gender and marriage equality, the dangers of snapchat, dating a Chinese woman, reaching 40 and most of all, after the documentary-style stand up show about his time in China, Des is looking forward to returning to straight stand up where he can riff about whatever is on his mind.

Jason Byrne Is Propped Up
Jason Byrne’s brand new show has everything you’ve come to expect from ‘The Outright King of Live Comedy’ (The Times), plus Ducks, False Chins, Portable Igloos, Bewildered Owls and much, much more. The star of ‘Wild Things’ (Sky 1) and ‘The Snaptastic Show’ (TV3) has gone back to his comedy roots, probably so he can pull them up and use them as a prop as well.

Edwin Sammon Vs Cancer
GOING ON SALE SHORTLY
Performing stand up for ten years now, Offaly native Edwin Sammon has established himself as one of the most popular comedians in the country. His unpredictable and immensely likeable style saw audiences award him the Tedfest Golden Toilet Duck in 2011 for best comedian and led to him supporting the likes of Jason Byrne, Fred Cooke and Ardal O'Hanlon on their nationwide tours. Edwin has been solidly building new fans at every major festival in the country and comedy clubs across Ireland and the U.K. In 2013 he was part of the sold out nationwide "Lads Of Comedy" tour.
Now gaining more fans in his role as Fr. Gabriel in RTE's popular sitcom "Bridget and Eamon" and as Co- Presenter on "Republic Of Telly" he is bringing his first stand up special "Edwin Sammon vs Cancer" to Draiocht for one night.
