Cork Comedy Fest
Andrew Ryan: Did You Get Here Alright?
The second Cork Comedy Fest, takes place from 21st -24th September. Following the success of last year’s inaugural festival, the second installment is back with a bang with some 25 gigs scheduled in six venues across Cork city. Cork Opera House are delighted to be hosting seven gigs including two children’s shows.
Andrew is trying to conquer love, life, politics, insecurity, fear, living alone, and all while he is an immigrant in a country where he was recently told to go home. Andrew has found the answer, it is not what he expected. ‘Very entertaining hour of comedy that comes in a very natural style’ **** (Fest).
Cork Comedy Fest is the brainchild of Jane Russell, formerly Chief Executive of the Cat Laughs comedy festival and a highly experienced festival producer and talent agent. Speaking at the launch of the second Cork Comedy Fest, Ms. Russell said, “I was blown away last year by the reception the festival received. We had packed houses at pretty much every show and the comics themselves had a ball playing to Cork audiences. Corkonians have a keen sense of humour so it’s no surprise really that there’s such a strong appetite for comedy. The aim this September is to introduce children’s shows, add debut acts alongside the firm favourites and build upon the success of 2016. Plans are already underway for the 2018 edition too.”
