Des Bishop - Grey Matters - SOLD OUT
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, the prospect of 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.
May contain strong language.
Brendan Grace - It’s a Funny Old World
It's a funny old world when seen through the eyes of Brendan Grace. The sanctimonious priest who knows more than he's telling: ''Blessed is he who gets married in the nick of time''.
The father of the bride makes a speech at his daughters wedding: ''She could have married someone with money, she could have married someone who was working. She could have married someone who wasn't working but was willing to work.'' Then there's the schoolboy with the unspeakable personal habits and a fine line in sympathy pleas.
Brendan's material owes more to the best of the traditional stand-up-comics than it does to modern alternative humour and his show is very much a show for all the family. There is a sincerity about his act that endears you to him, and his off-stage persona is very much a 'man of the people' as he makes himself available after each show for a photo and a 'meet and greet'.
Foil Arms and Hog - SkiddlyWup
A Collection of Sketches that are tight, loose, improvised and scripted in equal measure ...
In this year’s show SkiddlyWup, we find out what happens when a white Irish secret agent is sent undercover in Africa to blend in, when two bouncers go on a date and why having a permanent audience in your living room is ‘en vogue’. Dubbed by the critics as ‘Deliriously funny and at times unexpectedly dark’, Foil Arms and Hog have over 4 million hits on YouTube, been heard on BBC4s Sketcharama and were awarded a five star review from The Irish Times for their latest show. They are back with a collection of sketches that are tight, loose, improvised and scripted in equal measure.
Early Bird: €12 (Book before 09 Jan 2016)

David O’Doherty Live 2016
We Are All in the Gutter, But Some of Us Are Looking at David O'Doherty
David O’Doherty, the Lidl Enya, the broken Bublé, is delighted to present a new hour of talking and songs played on a stupid keyboard from 1986. Life is like a box of chocolates, but one where somebody else has eaten all the chocolates. And replaced them with mouse heads and dishwasher tablets.
