Each Year on the June Bank Holiday weekend Irish comedians are joined by a huge international line-up in what has become one of the most popular and well attended festivals in Ireland.

This has grown from small beginnings into one of Europe’s best and most popular comedy festivals¬†– the fact that no shows are recorded and there are no competitions means the performers are relaxed, there for the fun and usually on top form. Kilkenny has become accustomed to seeing world renowned faces from the world of comedy relax and enjoy attending this festival just as much as performing in it.

There are lots of other events in town during the festival but with comedy shows from lunchtime to after midnight spread over more than a dozen venues you may not get to see much of them. There are also a host of street events, among the most popular being the annual football match between Irish and International comedians.

Date and details for 2020 subject to confirmation.
