The International Comedy Club, Dublin

It was another great Saturday night at the International Comedy Club in Dublin, Ireland  taking in 3 brilliant local acts. There is comedy on most nights of the week and Saturday night is always a feature act with 2 sessions: 8.30pm and 10.30pm. If you like comedy and can understand Irish I cannot recommend it highly enough. A note to all: the theatre is upstairs and the toilets aren’t…. so go to the toilet before the show starts and get yourself a couple of drinks. Moving around is nearly impossible as the venue is always completely sold out and packed in.
