Stand-up Comedy in Northern Ireland

Enjoy the craic in Northern Ireland...

The Irish love a good joke, and we naturally have a vibrant local comedy scene. There are plenty of opportunities to sit back and enjoy the craic - Pop down to the Empire Bar in Belfast's University district for the Comedy Club nights, or, if you are brave enough, head for the open mic nights at the Playhouse in Derry where anyone can stand up and impress the crowd with their funny jokes!

Check out our comedy venues and upcoming events below.

Just Some Ideas

Kevin Bridges - A Whole Different Story, Londonderry/Derry

Kevin Bridges returns to the road with a brand new show A Whole Different Story…

Scotland’s biggest export, Kevin Bridges, dubbed as “brilliant” by one of his comedy idols, Billy Connolly has had an astonishing rise to success. His 2012 tour, Kevin Bridges – The Story Continues… smashed box office records selling a staggering 45,000 tickets on the first day.

50 Shades Of Red, White and Blue, Ballymena

Hitting the Belfast stage in January 2013, Maggie, Big Sally Ann and Mr Red White & Blue sold out all 9,000 seats. Due to popular demand we are going to the Braid Arts Centre for two nights which is sure to sell out. If we were to say this is a laugh-a-minute evening we wouldn’t be telling lies- it’s literally non-stop laughter!

The Fresh Prince of Delamere Tour, Newcastle

Neil Delamere as seen on "The Blame Game" and The Republic of Telly" will be appearing in Newcastle on Saturday 18th July in St Mary's Hall, Main Street, Newcastle.

Dirty Dancing in the Le Shebeen, Ballymena

The loveable Maggie is back with a bang in the highly anticipated sequel to 50 Shades of Red, White And Blue
