“One day you’re writing a sitcom for Comedy Central USA, the next you’re cutting your own hair…”

In Overnight Failure, Dublin comic Brian Cheatle  (above) – host of Retro-Vision– like many of us suddenly “finds himself middle-aged after decades of screw-ups”.

Produced by Caroline Swords, this new stand-up show plays at the Smock Alley Theatre, Lower Exchange Street, Temple Bar, Dublin 8 on February 27-28.

Tickets here:

Director Jonathan Miller’s fascinating documentary profile of ultra-Orthodox Jewish comic David Finklestein is the tale of a man looking to find his place in an alien world and using jokes as a means to do that.

Struggling to balance his love of stand-up with his strict religious lifestyle, Finklestein is forced to make a choice between his passion and his community.

He’s funny. You’ll like him.

Did you know? Going to see live stand up comedy doesn’t have to mean sitting through the same style of jokes delivered by someone who is shouting while they sweat on you?

There is a place that you can go where you can hear diverse, intellectual and hilarious people entertain you with their fresh, well crafted humour.

It’s called Gold. Comedy Gold. This Friday we are collaborating with RTÉ to bring you some of the best new voices on the scene.

The link for the last few tickets is below. Snap them up and join us in Collins Barracks [Dublin 7] this Friday for Culture Night for a live recording of some great acts from Comedy Gold!

One of our shows is already sold out but there are a few tickets left for the 6.30 pm slot.
