We deserve a good laugh after a year & a half.

The festival also features Irish and international comedy stars such as Nina Conti, Reginald D. Hunter, Rich Hall, Ardal O'Hanlon, Steve Hughes, Kevin McAleer, Owen Colgan and many more. Plus Stephen Frost’s Improv Stars (think "Whose Line Is It Anyway?” and you got it), Open Top Comedy Bus Tours, and lots of late night shenanigans at the Dirty Circus at The Loft @ Seven or Late Night KARLnival in Roisin Dubh.

Faulty Towers - The Dining Experience

Wednesday 20th, Thursday 21st & Friday 22nd October

When the audience become the diners in the ‘Faulty Towers’ restaurant, pretty much anything can happen – because 70% of the show is improvised.

The fun starts as guests wait to be seated. It then hurtles along in a 2 hour tour de force of gags and shambolic service as Basil, Sybil and Manuel serve a ‘70s-style 3-course meal together with a good dollop of mayhem.

Expect the unexpected!
