Kavanaghs Comedy Club is back and it promises to be better than ever

After a break of a couple of years, one of the most popular regular events in the county is back!

Kavanaghs Comedy Club monthly show returns on Thursday, April 6, and will be on the first Thursday of each month thereafter

This is a relaunch of the monthly club that has proven such a big hit over the years. Due to the success of the club fundraising nights in Kavanaghs, the annual Halloween Howls festival and the Kavanaghs comedy shows in the Heritage Hotel it has not been possible to always showcase the latest and emerging talents on the comedy scene.

These club nights will showcase the finest working comics and will have the odd TV name trying out new material. As there are deals on tickets it is the best value night out you will find.

Totally Wired

Totally Wired may, in their own words, be Ireland’s oldest and least successful boybands but they are also one of the best acts on the Irish comedy scene.

Their high energy blend of songs, stand-up and puns is a comedy tour de force. They are a regular closing act at Ireland’s premier comedy club Dublin’s Laughter Lounge and have played at every major festival in Ireland, Electric Picnic, Forbidden Fruit, Cat Laughs, Iveagh Gardens and Halloween Howls to name just a few.

Not only were the support act for Al Porter on this breakout Irish tour but joined Al on Stage nightly as a key part of the show.

Kavanagh’s Comedy Club has been trying to get them back since they brought the house down during Halloween Howls 2015 and are delighted to start back the monthly club with such a strong show.

Guitarist Lorcan Hughes is no stranger to Laois as he lives in Portarlington and his partner in crime Emmet Quinn is from Edenderry.

Joining them on the night will be the club’s Resident MC Mark Doheny. A multi award-winning comedian Mark is never more comfortable than onstage in the venue where he received his comedy education from former club MC – and now star of stage and screen – Bernard O’Shea.

Additional support comes from Michael Downey, an award winner who has played in some of the biggest clubs in the UK and Ireland.

Also on the bill is Tullamore man Jonathan Sheehan – an up and coming act on the Irish scene.
