Inn Jokes Comedy Night. Patriots Inn.9pmDate: 17th Nov 2010
Following the success of the first two gigs, Inn Jokes is 'going monthly' and we've another great line up of comedians for the next show in the Patriot's Inn in Kilmainham on Wednesday November 17th. For the conspiracy theorists among you, hoping to spot a pattern; you've guessed it: Inn Jokes will be on the third Wednesday of every month. As usual, in keeping with the tradition of entertainment at the Patriot's Inn, entry is _FREE_ (And then we hand around a top hat for voluntary contributions. The hat has a smiley face drawn on it, so it's all very friendly) The Line Up: Gearoid Farrelly This month, it's a pleasure to bring this great comedian to Kilmainham. Gearoid started in comedy just a few years ago but his progress was swift. Within a short while he was a finalist in So You Think You're Funny and played support to the great Rich Hall in the Olympia. 2010 has been quite a year for the rising star of Irish comedy. He appeared on the Craig Doyle during the Summer, recorded Stand And Deliver - soon to be on our screens - and also made his debut on The Panel. In November's Inn Jokes, Gearoid brings us his witty and ascerbic take on a everything from Blathnaid ni Chofaigh to wheelie bins. Definitely one to catch. Rory O'Hanlon Not to be confused with the former Fianna Fail minister for Health, Rory has been doing stand up comedy since 2005. Since then he has become a regular at all the major comedy venues in Ireland and has just returned from this year's Edinburgh fringe where performed his second solo show. He was also a finalist at the prestigious 2010 Amused Moose Laugh Off and played the Best of Irish at the legendary Stand club. Rory's stand up is a mixture of hilarious story-telling and general observation all told by this extremely likeable Dubliner Cathal Murray Cathal is another comedian on the rise. This Autumn he embarks on a nationwide tour with Des Bishop so he's going to be comedy fighting fit when he brings his off-beat sharp jokes to the stage. Cathal is also to be heard on Sunday mornings on Radio 1. Colm O'Regan - Colm has performed all over the world, the Montreal Comedy festival, in the Far East and all over the UK and Ireland. Last year he made his Edinburgh debut. He's been on UK and Irish TV and is currently writing a weekly newspaper column for the Cork News.
