Great, impromptu evening out with the pleasure of catching the best of irish. Worth a visit to be sure.

A genuine showcase of everything I love about Irish comedy, with a host that could only ever have been a comedian as he appears to be so Irish it looks as though it might actually hurt. So if you're after a value for money show with a bunch of different acts all glued together by an MC, who is in my professional medical opinion, 'as mad as bag of spanners', you've found it!

WARNING! If you go to this show you may suffer from laughing so much that you:
* cry
* get sore cheeks
* get sore ribs
* (dare I say ladies) pee yourself a little
* leave with the hiccups
Or all of the above.
Genuinely, Michael Porter and his merry Irish colleagues never fail to turn the craic up to ninety = they are fabulously funny.

Saw these lads in Leith last year so wanted to see them in the gilded balloon. Was delighted I did too. Very funny and great buzz. Will be bringing a few pals at the weekend
