Comedy KARLnival with Karl Spain and friends

Corkonian Andrew Ryan’s storytelling abilities and cheeky, friendly demeanour makes him a natural observational stand-up and one of the most in-demand acts on the UK comedy circuit. The Irishman has performed stand-up on Russell Howard’s Good News, Edinburgh Comedy Fest Live, Comedy Central at The Comedy Store, and Funny Rotten Scoundrels.

Last year saw Andrew return to Ireland to perform to sold out audiences in Dublin and Cork, as well as a few great appearances at Vodafone Comedy Carnival and selling out his entire run at the Edinburgh Fringe. Andrew has also made appearances on TV3’s The 6 O’Clock Show and BBC1 NI’s The Blame Game. Earlier this year, Andrew’s latest offering Sure, You Know Yourself won ‘Best New Show’ at the Leicester Comedy Festival Awards.

Patser Murray has a way with words. One of the top acts around Ireland at the moment, a favorite at the International Bar, Laughter Lounge, City Limits Cork, The Empire Belfast, Chaplins, Anseo, and many other established comedy clubs. He is also an established actor appearing in television on ‘Love/Hate’, Primeval, ‘Can’t Cope Won’t Cope’ and movies such as “You’re Ugly Too” and “Intermission”. He was nearly in ‘Game of Thrones’ but his boobs although big were not big enough.

He was also the man behind the very successful PH-unny nights at the Palmerstown House. Patser is fast becoming one of Ireland’s favourites comedy acts performing improvised skits with Jimmy Carr to supporting Jason Byrne, and Al Porter, Patser has been around the block! Got tea bags, and his now just waiting for the kettle, to boil.
“A brilliant, act with loads to offer! The former boxer is now more focused on the punchlines than punches. Patser way we like it” – Hot Press
“That man is gas” – Jason Byrne
