In an ideal world we’d obviously love to see ALL the comedians perform but since we can’t be everywhere at once (and can’t afford all those tickets!) this would be our wish list…

Thursday 25th Tony Law- Maximum Noise, Benny Boot, Danny Dowling, Colin Murphy @ Kelly’s 8pm – with a collection of comedians like that it’s bound to be an off-the-wall fun time!
Thursday 25th The Ruberbandits @ The Róisín Dubh 11.59pm – sod the fact that there’s work in the morning
…some Irish comedians that RTE have shared with the world! Yup, you’ve guessed it, this post is dedicated to some of our homegrown talent who have appeared on our tellybox in one form or another. So if you want to see them performing live stand-up the Vodafone Comedy Festival (Thurs26th- Sun29th July) is the ideal opportunity to catch them without a character to hide behind.
Aprés Match star Barry Murphy is described by Hotpress as “one of the High Kings of Irish comedy”. He has an original perspective on life which he has poured into his many successful tv projects including ‘Couched’ and ‘Soupie Norman’ but over the course of the festival he will be performing his unique brand of stand-up in 2shows; Friday 27th @7.30pm (Cherry Top) and Sat 28th @4.30pm (Joke Shop).
Dave Mc Savage is known for the cutting comedic commentary on Irish life he brings to life with the help of his characters in tv show, The Savage Eye. Wickedly funny Dave is one of Ireland’s most popular comedians and you can see him perform for yourself on Thurs 26th @7.30pm (Big Red) and on Fri 27th @9.30pm (Joke Shop).
Another Savage Eye writer will be taking to the stage in the form of Dermot Mc Morrow. Dermot is a unique act who will be answering unusual questions like ‘Do you ever wonder where seagulls go at night?’ as part of his set when he joins Dave Mc Savage and company on Fri 27th @9.30pm (Joke Shop)
John Colleary is a familiar face on the stand-up comedy scene but he is most recognisable as another of the stars of The Savage Eye. He will be joining his Savage Eye cohorts on Fri 27th @ 9.30pm (Joke Shop) but if you miss him then you can see him perform his set anew on Sat 28th @10pm (Cherry Top)
