Steve Frost on why you should see the Carlsberg Comedy Carnival
I know Lottie’s already introduced the Carslberg Comedy Carvival, running in the Iveagh Gardens, Dublin from July 23 to 26, so really there’s no need for me to go into the incredible array of acts, including over 60 of the top comedians on the circuit today, the carnival atmosphere, the fact there’ll be live music and street entertainers, a gourmet barbeque or the fact you’ll get admission and a show from €23.
Far be it from me also to mention that appearing – among many many others are The River Tenors (as presented by the Aprés Match team), Ardal O’ Hanlon, Bernard O’ Shea, Bo Burnham, Colin Murphy, David O’ Doherty, Dermot Whelan, Des Bishop, Doktor Cocacolamcdoanlds, Eric Lalor, Eugene Mirman (probably best known from Flight of the Conchords), Hans Teeuwen, Jarlath Regan, Jason Byrne, Joe Rooney, Karl Spain, Kevin Gildea, Maeve Higgins, Neil Delamere, Paddy C Courtney, PJ Gallagher, Reuben, Shane Langan, Tom Stade, The stars of Whose Line is it Anyway, Willa White OR the International Comedy Club 10th Anniversary Show that’s happening too.
No no, instead I’ll let one of the top comedians in the Carnival – Steve Frost – tell you himself. I’ve even asked him to throw in a joke for you.
Steve Frost is a star (and veteran) of improv, a renowned comedy actor in everything from The Young Ones to Blackadder to Mr Bean, French and Saunders, The Bill, the Carling Black Label ads and more recently Have I Got News For You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks and Whose Line Is It Anyway.
He’s part of the WLIIA lineup at this year’s festival with Sean Lock (8 out of 10 cats team captain) as their special guest along with Ian Coppinger, Andy Smart, Steve Steen and Richard Vranch. It’s on Saturday 25 at 7.30 and tickets are €29.50
We’ll be telling you more about the carnival as soon as we can. It looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun.
