Just For Laughs

Searching out the best Irish comedic talent at Vicar Street on Thursday, the 2nd of March.

As you may have seen from Ed Byrne's Just For Laughs, the biggest comedy festival in the world hosts some of the biggest names in comedy while showcasing some of the best up and coming talent the comedy scene has to offer.

 

Over the last 23 years, Just For Laughs, Montreal's International Comedy Festival, has become the world's largest comedy event hosting some of the top comics in the world including Jerry Seinfeld, Jim Carrey, Dave Chappelle, Chris Rock and Eddie Izzard.

 

Having launched many unknown stand-ups into comic stardom over the last two decades, Just For Laughs selects comedians from numerous showcases around the globe to perform at the festival.

 

Dublin has been a hotbed of comic talent over the last decade producing comic stars like Ardal O'Hanlon, Tommy Tiernan and Dylan Moran, making it one of the most popular destinations for showcasing great comedy.

 

At the Just For Laughs Irish showcase you can roar your favourite stand-up on as they display their comic talents in a bid to join the impressive list of artists featuring in this year's festival.

 

One of Ireland's most popular comedians, Barry Murphy will host a line up of talented comedians including Neil Delamere, Andrew Stanley, Paddy C. Courtney, Dermot Whelan and Kevin Gildea vying for a spot in Montreal.

 

Last year, Just For Laughs welcomed over 2 million people and featured over 1,500 performances, indoors and outdoors, by more than 700 artists from 14 countries. Just For Laughs is attended by 1,000 industry and TV executives searching for hot comedians in a bid to find the next big sitcom star.

 

Promising to be a great night of Irish comedy, Just For Laughs takes place at Vicar Street on Thursday, on the 2nd of March.
