The Best of Irish Comedy

Ireland's finest under one roof. Excellent value Celtic showcase featuring four top comics for the price of one.

Fringe institution since 1999. Moving from Stand 3 to The Stand's New Town Theatre, Lower Hall – because we just couldn't contain that much hilarity!

Previous guests include: Jason Byrne, Dara O'Briain, Dylan Moran, David O'Doherty, Andrew Maxwell, Colin Murphy, Ed Byrne, Neil Delamere, Maeve Higgins, Michael Redmond, Eleanor Tiernan, Jarlath Reagan, Deirdre O'Kane, Jake O'Kane, Ian Coppinger and Owen O'Neill.

Arrive Early for Seating
Tickets for the majority of our shows can be collected at the venue door upon entry however we would still advise arriving a little in advance of our door opening time. This allows you to join a queue as all venues are general admission and a mixture of seating and standing room. This is especially true for Edinburgh and Newcastle if you aim to eat in our clubs as seating with tables tend to be taken quite quickly and we can’t allocate or reserve seating in advance for that purpose. 

 

For Edinburgh Fringe dates during August, we advise you arrive at least 30 minutes before doors open for your selected shows to collect your festival tickets. This allows you to join a queue as all venues are general admission. All venues are seated apart from Stand 1 which is seating and standing room. There is no food service during Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

A concession rate ticket applies to 60+, Students, unemployed, benefit recipients with proof of ID upon collection.
