Comedy at The Big Top

Join us for a night of comedy at The Big Top hosted by Karl Spain with comedians Danny O’ Brien, Eve Darcy and Ger Staunton.

Karl Spain is probably best known in Ireland for his TV series Karl Spain Wants a Woman, which was a huge success in that he not only got huge ratings but he also found himself a woman. He has appeared on Liffey Laughs, The Late Late Show, The Panel and is a regular at Kilkenny Cat Laughs, Vodafone Comedy Festival, Edinburgh Fringe Festival and Montreal Just for Laughs.

Danny O’Brien is resident host and owner of The Comedy Crunch in Dublin – his friendly, high energy and anecdotal style draws in an audience and brings on the big laughs with ease! Following in the footsteps of Simon Pegg, Dylan Moran and Dara Ó Briain, Danny was handpicked in 2016 to perform as part of the iconic “Best of The Edinburgh Fest” Show.

Eve Darcy is host of ‘COMEDY’ at the Workman’s Club in Dublin, performs all around Ireland, including Vodafone Comedy & Cat Laughs Festivals. She has performed in Vancouver, the UK and brought her solo show ‘That’s Why’ to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2017. Eve returns to Edinburgh this August with her new solo show ‘All About Eve’.

Ger Staunton is a regular headline act on the Irish Comedy circuit, Staunton has been described by the International Comedy Club in Dublin as “One of the best comedy writers in Ireland.” Meticulously crafted material delivered in the kind of playful, tongue-in-cheek style endears him to audiences of all ages and demographics.
