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!
