Chris Kent

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.

Brendon Burns

Brendon Burns appearing at this event

Noisy, manic and in-your-face comedian from Australia. This foul-mouthed antipodean is known as a masterly exponent of his art, intelligent and hilarious, railing against bigotry without preaching and taking the audience to the edge of their belief systems with his full on comedy routine. Brendon has appeared on The 11 O'clock Show and The Stand Up Show. 'The most jaw-droppingly awkward, painful, yet ultimately rewarding piece of stand-up we've ever seen' (Time Out)

Big things to come' (Anonymous reviewer).
