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

Dirty Dancing, Ballymena

Westend Productions presents The Dirty Dancing show plus all the hits from the most famous dance movies of all time such as Grease, Flash Dance, Fame and Foot Loose! All singing and dancing cast with live musicians.

Treasure Island, Newry

The Newry-based Newpoint Players Youth Group presents Sean Tranor's (a local man) adaptation of 'Treasure Island', a summer pantomime

The Matchmaker, Limavady

Watch the misguided antics of Dicky Mick Dicky O Connor as he match-makes the lonely and lovelorn from all parts of the country.

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

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!
