Events: Charity Comedy Gig @ McGrattans
Comedy gigs are ten a penny at the moment, I should know! However while stalking…eh… I mean researching comedians on Facebook I came across this gig-with-a-difference.
McGrattans Comedy Club is the brainchild of Michael Noone and Ben Farrell. They open their doors on Thursday 24th November. I sat down to chat with Michael and Ben about the gig and the club in general.
Micahel says they chose to do a charity gig in order to give somethiing back and also because they are not opening the club for the money but more for the experience. Both Michael and Ben are quite new to the comedy scene and have both had struggles, they want to put those stuggles to good use. They have said they wanted to bring something different to the Irish comedy scene, something funky! They also plan to have a mix of new and established comedians on each night.
So what makes this comedy night any different from the other hundreds (well ok maybe not hundreds) of other comedy nights going on in Dublin on November 24th? Well according the lads, the venue looks like an old style San Francisco comedy club…..however that’s not the reason I will be there… I will be there for the raffle… Two of the prizes are displayed below by the lovely Michael Noone…
There are 4 on total….I won’t ruin the surprise by telling you the other two!
Come along on the night for a top line up of comedians which include, Barry Mack, Paul Tylak and Danny Dowling as your Headline! It’s for charity too…Do something good!
