Chris Kent appearing at this event

Winner of the Comedy Smackdown at the Galway Comedy festival 2010, and of the Bulmers Nuttin’ But Funny Competition 2009, Chris Kent is one of Ireland’s rapidly rising young comedians. As well as being regular MC at Cork’s City Limits comedy club, Chris has gigged all over Ireland with PJ Gallagher, Ardal O’Hanlon and Colin Murphy, to name but a few. His sharp style prey's on his own everyday life and his ability to laugh at himself gives for some great viewing. Chris is one to watch! ‘Breathes new life into anecdotal comedy’ The List. 'Compelling storyteller, truly surprising, beautifully delivered’The Scotsman.

Lee Kyle

Lee Kyle appearing at this event

A stand up comedian from the Northeast of England. 'Armed with props and a rapid gag rate, former professional wrestler Lee Kyle cuts a confident, if off-beat figure on stage. His jokes veer between the clever and the silly and deliver more than their fair share of belly laughs. Instantly likeable, Lee is quick thinking and witty with a well-written, beautifully crafted and, most importantly, hilarious set of jokes.' (Comedy CV) 'The highlight of the evening... Firing out laughs left, right and centre he managed to hit every person in the room... Lee Kyle was in a league of his own... both quirky and original and had the crowd roaring' (www.gigglebeats.co.uk) 'One of the regions best up-and-coming comic performers' (BBC Radio Tees).
