The internet as usual has been a 3 ringed circus of comedy this week (d’you see what I did there? ) So where better to start than with our friends over at Chunk.ie who teamed up with Final Boss Media to bring you this hilarious look at classic Irish tv…
Ah the typical Friday dilemma…
I can’t think of any good #FF‘s. No one has really “brought it” this week.
Perhaps this is the solution?
The Princes of Lagos are making a welcome return to the stage tonight at 4 Dame Lane!
Taking their award-winning, fully improvised show to the masses once again – you will be treated to a comedy tour de force by some of Irelands greatest improvisers – Deirdre Cleary, Samantha Murphy, Sorcha Hackett, Zanya Dahl, Lee Coffey, Gordon Rochford, Ciaran McBrearty and Jonny Loco.
They are fed by your suggestions (literally!) and so MUST come and shout out suggestions for them to act out scenes!
Always an excellent night out that Newstalk Radio claimed ‘was some of the best off the cuffmanship I’ve ever seen – highly recommended’
Wary of an improv night because you don’t know what to expect? Well here’s a little snippet of the troupe in action to put your mind at ease…
Hehehe, looks like a fun night doesn’t it? Doors for tonight’s show open at 8:30pm and show starts at 9:00pm SHARP! And remember they’re an improv troupe if you walk in late they will almost certainly seize that golden opportunity for some fun… you have been warned!
Where: 4Dame Lane
When: Tonight (11th Oct 2012)
Time: 9pm (doors 8.30pm)
As this will be my last blog I decided to gather together some of my favourite comedy videos into one post. In no particular order here they are.
First up, some improv from the Princes of Lagos……their command of accents is awesome!
Next, Foil Arms and Hog. It’s an old one but I love these guys!
Anyone that can rap about tea is a good un in my book….step in Doc Brown!

Ok comedy lovers it’s time to check out the line up for the upcoming 10days in Dublin festival. Here’s our first random selection of the acts on over the 10day festival for you to add to your to see list
Neil Hickey is bringing his stand-up show ‘The Nerve’ to The International Bar on Friday 6th @ 6.30pm. Neil is a well-known face around the Dublin comedy scene and, according to the 10days website, “has finally gathered the nerve to be himself on stage, at least in a roundabout way. Why burden an audience with the details of a uniquely dysfunctional existence when one can concoct a fantastical retelling of events? Childhood to adulthood will be rendered hilariously absurd. The Nerve is a highly distorted version of one man’s life, a fast and funny everyman journey also for women.” With tickets costing only €5 this is a golden opportunity to see Neil in action before he takes his show to Edinburgh next month! Even more golden is the fact that we here at thecomedyscoop have wrangled a pair of tickets for Neil’s show on Friday 6th to give away to you lucky folks of the interweb! All you have to do is drop us a mail ; email@example.com and remember to say please!
