Dates, Times and Prices


The Northern Irish Comedy Protocol is a showcase highlighting the best brand-new comedy talent from the new explosion in Northern Irish comedy (that is probably more of a triggering phrase to be honest... actually, so is 'triggering'). Harsh accents, dark humour and weird outlooks are the order of the day. From the place that brought you Derry Girls and... Belfast by Kenneth Branagh? Yeah, we really need to start upping our game. A daily showcase of NI acts, all hosted by Peter E Davidson (as heard on BBC Radio Ulster's The Blame Game).
