A brand new weekly comedy night, featuring the very best of Irish comedy talent hosted by the wonderful Karl Spain.
A poet, stand-up, improviser, actor, artist, radio presenter, TV stalwart, and Róisín Dubh favourite Phill Jupitus has many strings to his bow. He first became famous when he started as team captain on BBC2’s pop quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks in 1996, a position he held for 19 years. Aside from Buzzcocks and live stand up shows all over the UK, Phill also appears as a regular guest on QI (BBC2) and Alan Davies As Yet Untitled (Dave), and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo (BBC1). His live shows are legendary for his ability to drag laughs out of the chaos of his own life and the uncertain world that surrounds it.
Joe Dowlin has been bringing his hilarious stories and tales to comedy clubs all over the country and abroad for the past 5 years. Joe was a finalist in the Ireland’s Got Comedy Talent at The Laughter Lounge where he now performs in the Best of the Irish weekends. His madcap, high energy brand of comedy has him sought after in every club in Ireland. He’s also the resident host at the very popular Comedy Shed, as well as at the world famous International Comedy Club, supported PJ Gallagher, Des Bishop, and Katherine Lynch, and Tom Stade.
Originally from Kilkenny but a favourite on the Galway comedy scene, NUIG Comedy Society’s Manager Sarah O’Gorman has already performed alongside the likes of Fred Cooke, Katherine Lynch, Al Foran and Phill Jupitus.
