Ardal O’Hanlon

Thu 10 Sep 2015 8PM Main Auditorium // €20 / €18 conc

Lurking beneath Ardal O’Hanlon’s mild-mannered demeanour resides a sharp and probing (and fairly mild-mannered) comic brain. Sometimes thoughtful, sometimes silly, but always punchy, he has tickled audiences all over the world. In a comprehensive set, he talks about not just the things that matter but also about the things that don’t matter at all. Which covers pretty much everything. Although best known for his starring roles in Father Ted and My Hero, Ardal’s other TV credits include SKY comedy-drama After Hours, Cucumber, London Irish & Skins.

Lock Up Your Husbands

The Nualas

Sat 19 Sep 2015 8PM Main Auditorium // €18 / €15 conc

Ireland’s favourite all-girl music-comedy sexy-singing -sensation trio are hitting the road again with an all-new show ...

In their most dangerous show ever The Nualas break the mould they made previously with a deluge of new songs, higher harmonies, different keys and slightly shorter dresses, if that’s possible! And there’s more: Expect new Nuala revelations, harder laughs, slicker riffs, and even tighter foundation wear... if that’s possible! When this show previewed in Dolan’s of Leitrim, at least three Gardai and a relationship counsellor had to be called. As part of their ensuing community service (six weeks scooping out litter from the Shannon) the girls were obliged, as a warning, to call this sweltering new show, LOCK UP YOUR HUSBANDS. You have been warned!

Last year The Nualas stormed the Edinburgh fringe Fest (The Scotsman nominated them one of the top five comedy shows of the 1000s at the festival), they sold-out their headline gigs at Dublin’s Vodafone Comedy Festival, and spread the glam all over from Antrim to Bantry.

Kindness - A One Man Comedy Show by Sam Brady

Heart-warming, Thought-provoking, Soul-searching Comedy!

Thu 1 Oct 2015 8.15PM Draíocht Studio // €12

Award winning comedian and failed Buddhist monk Sam Brady explores his ongoing struggle to be a ‘good person’ and asks why ‘kindness’ is so undervalued and so hard to practise. Join Sam for this heart-warming, thought-provoking, soul-searching night of comedy.
“With this naturally funny and charismatic man, there wasn’t one moment of this show that felt contrived or forced. We heard hilarious (and some quite poignant) anecdotes that drove home his point that even though humans are flawed, the little acts of kindness really do make a difference ... emotional and uplifting.” (Three Weeks)
Sam Brady is an award-winning comedian and a failed Buddhist monk. He has a story-telling style that is friendly, warm, enthusiastic and candid. His one man shows are moving, thought-provoking and soul-searching (as well as being very funny!), as he continues to try and figure out how to live a meaningful life. 

Age suitability: 16+ / May contain strong language.
