Rubberbandits – Closing Gala @ Spiegeltent, 27th October, 8pm


Hardcore gangster rappers from Limerick city. The plastic-bag wearing music/comedy duo bring their BRAND NEW MUSICAL straight from its critically-acclaimed, sold-out London season. Continental Fistfight is packed with dazzling new songs, great big hits and at least one puppet. Rubberbandits are ribbed for your pleasure.

 Ardal O’Hanlon – 24th October @ Roisin Dubh, 25th October @ King’s Head

In the 1980s, Ardal was part of the emergent Irish comedy scene at Dublin’s International Comedy Club and a founding member of the legendary Mr. Trellis sketch outfit. Acting credits include Father Ted and My Hero among many other roles on stage and screen



David O’Doherty – 25 October @ Seapoint Ballroom, 8pm & 26th October @ Town Hall Theatre , 7 pm

In 2008 David won the big prize in Edinburgh and with that, low energy musical whimsy exploded all over the comedy world. David plays a little keyboard, sings funny songs and will blow your mind. Gently. We <3 David! Don’t forget to lower your expectations!



Tommy Tiernan – has shows on 16th, 17th, 18th and 19th October

Tommy Tiernan

A force of nature trapped inside a bearded storytelling funnyman, Tommy is Ireland’s funniest living person. His energy, confidence and control will leave you in a helpless heap. His material is surreal and thought provoking or would be if you had time to think. Tommy live is an experience, just let yourself be swept away
