The Death of Comedy – only €5 – Tuesday night at the Workmans Club
Here’s the details from the Facebook event page:
The Death of Comedy – Episode IV – A New Hope
Tuesday 6th December, The Workman’s Club – Admission €5
The Death of Comedy returns this December with its fourth instalment. The first three shows have brought the best of Irish comedy to the masses for the tiny sum of €5, and we’re doing just that all over again. Show is at 8pm.
Headlining the night will be the clever, hilarious and “from Cork” Mr. Colm O’Regan. Colm’s been making a name for himself as one of Ireland’s future comedy stars with thanks to his hugely successful recent show ‘Dislike: A Facebook Guide To Crisis’ which has had sold-out runs in Kilkenny and Galway, and received critical acclaim at the Edinburgh Fringe.
Joining Colm on the night will be Trevor Browne, who we think is probably the funniest musical comedian on the Irish circuit at the moment. The boys from the Edinburgh Fringe’s biggest reviewer seem to agree with us – Three Weeks gave his show ‘Greaterness’ 5 stars this August. You should call in and see why. Also on the bill are the newly-reformed (or perhaps “back for one-night only”) The Glen Coco Experience. They may be from UCD, but they’re also funny. And there’s four of them, which sometimes works.
On the night, we’ll be introducing you to one of our favourite new comedians Tom Walsh. Tom was amazing when supporting Simon Munnery in Anseo a couple of months back and we hope you’ll agree with us that he’s one to watch.
MCing on the night will be Conor O’Toole who’s being brought back down to earth after some top class recent shows with Axis of Awesome and Paul Foot and a ‘moderately successful’ show at the Galway Comedy Festival in which he made the brave decision to compete for an audience with Michael D’s victorious homecoming. Needless to say, he had the last laugh.
As usual, it’s just a fiver for the best night of comedy you’re going to find in Dublin, in the best refurbished-former-social-club the city has to offer.
