Carlsberg is the new King of Comedy it seems having taken up the mitre of hosting the Kilkenny Cat Laughs festival at the end of May and now launching year two of the Comedy Carnival in the beautiful Iveagh Gardens in Dublin.
The Carnival runs from 23rd until 26th July and, much like the Cat Laughs does for Kilkenny, the Comedy Carnival brings an air of lazy hazy summer to Dublin.
The line-up includes the usuals like Des Bishop, Jason Byrne, Andrew Maxwell and PJ Gallagher but also has some very exciting “new-comers” and names maybe not as well known in Ireland. For instance, Bo Burnham who you may know from such Internet musical hits as Welcome to YouTube, Love Is… and My Whole Family. Tickets are also available for the incredibly smart dry humour of Shane Langan of Diet of Worms.
Tickets are now on sale at ticketmaster.ie.
Some of us Culchi.ies headed off the the launch of the festival in The Sugar Club on Wednesday night and ended up on Xposé. Can you spot the Culch.ie?
