After an incredible month of shows the limelight comedy club Is back with another incredible line up this Thursday!
MC Karl Spain is joined by guests Paul Currie, Richie Bree & Colm McGlinchey
Recent star of RTE’s “Operation Transformation”, Karl is probably best known in Ireland for his 2005 RTE TV series “Karl Spain Wants A Woman”. It was a huge success, he found himself a woman and he’s still with her 12 years later but that’s more hostage situation than a success story.
This Limerick native has been delighting comedy audiences across the country and beyond for years with his razor sharp wit and sense of mischief. He has featured in many Irish TV shows, played at loads of festivals, hosted shows for the best comedians in the world and he even wrote a panto or two!
Strap in for more fun and nonsense as the entire audience is taken by the hand into a true circus of silly and a rollercoaster of emotions. Currie pushes the rules of “Stand Up” comedy to their extremes.
“Currie is unique and utterly original. A new standard has been set for the Fringe” ***** (Skinny).
“It was like watching the Monty Python version of stand up” ***** (FringeGuru.com).
“Paul Currie, a man who can only be described as what would happen if Tim Burton created Mr Bean” (InformedEdinburgh.co.uk)
County Down born Richie Bree has quickly become a staple of the Irish comedy scene as the resident host of Cherry Comedy at Dublin’s iconic Whelan’s venue. Known for his Northern-humour and unique storytelling ability, Richie is a popular presence in comedy venues and festivals all over the country. He went to Edinburgh for the semi-final of the UK’s biggest and best comedy newcomer competition ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’ and won the first ever ‘Ireland’s got Comedy Talent’ competition in Ireland’s premier comedy venue the Laughter Lounge.
