Eric is one of the Ireland’s best comedians, in 2011 he was voted “comedian of the year” by the readers of entertainment.ie, He is a regular fixture at the Kilkenny Cat Laughs and all other irish festivals and to boot, he’s unbelievably sound.
Support on the night comes from Washington native, Jim Elliott. Jim is a regular performer in both the Laughter Lounge and the international comedy club, where he regularly drops serious comedy bombs.
Also Joining us on the night is the fabulous Al Porter.
Your host for the evening is Marcus O’Laoire (Republic Of Telly, Vicar Street)
Admission is €7, and that includes a free beer to help lubricate your laughing muscles, and other than that, its BYOB, so you can lurk in the corner with a 6 pack of dutch while you have a laugh.

The Night will be MC’d by Horrifical director Valerie “The Crypt-Keeper” Lynch.
