Cork Comedy Festival – The Opening Gala
MC Colin Murphy, with Alison Spittle, Gearoid Farrelly, Bernard O’Shea, Neil Delamere
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.
Join your MC for the evening, star of RTÉ’s The Panel, Colin Murphy, as he ushers the cream of Irish comedy to the Opera House stage. A stellar line up sees Alison Spittle, Gearoid Farrelly, Bernard O’Shea and Neil Delamere deliver mirth by the bucketload!
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.”
