This months guests include:
Hugh Cooney – Ireland’s most experimental humorist. His often hilarious, and always disturbing videos and interactive art comedy performances have made him a hit in clubs and music festivals alike. Cooney’s art school background and outsider status make him the perfect figure to push the Irish comedy scene out of it’s zombie somnambulance.
Aidan Killian is a standup comedian and comedy teacher who runs one of Dublin’s most successful comedy clubs ‘Laugh Out Loud’ at Anseo.
Sarah Griffin & Lisa Keegan – Dublin writresses living in Galway. Together they host the teenage cringe confessions night, ‘Scarleh Fer Yer Ma Fer Havin Ya’, where performers compete to read their most embarrassing diary entry or cringe inducing teenage poetry.
Rowan Managhan is a career management consultant, and author of the book ‘Where’s My Oasis? The essential handbook for everyone wanting that perfect job’. He is a business man who’s mantra is ‘We are all cave-men in good suits.’
Alison Spittle is one of Ireland’s best young female comedians. Half traveller, half hyper-intelligent ball of self deprecating charm and wit.
Film maker and ‘Milk & Cookies Stories’ star storyteller Thomas Rowley is the man behind the new Storymap Dublin project. His anecdotes of romantic misadventure are helping to popularise ‘Moth’ style comedic storytelling in Dublin.
