This is a small festival in a room over Kavanagh’s pub in Portlaoise, but it’s got a great line up and if comedy is what you are looking for you are not going to be disappointed.

There are two shows most nights, culminating in a special event on the last night of the festivale – in the past these events have included Fancy Dress Comedy and Silent Discos.

There is always a great line up with plenty of less well known comedians to discover alongside some of the top names in Irish comedy.

Date and details for 2021 subject to confirmation.
