Paddy Power Comedy Festival

Iveagh Gardens
July 25th-28th

Got fired from the calendar factory.
All I did was take a day off.

I backed a horse last week at 10 to 1.
It came in at quarter past four.

People who use selfie sticks really need to have a good, long look at themselves.

Jokes about online shopping don’t need much setup.
It’s all in the delivery.
You never forget how to throw a boomerang.
It always comes back to you.
Earth, Venus and Mars were going to organise a party.
Unfortunately nobody knew how to planet.

Where sport meets comedy, like Man Utd.

I get really nervous buying groceries online.
I hate putting all my eggs in one basket.

It takes a lot of balls to play golf the way I do.

I was addicted to the hokey cokey, but then I turned myself around.

My friend, a milliner, got fired for skiving off work.
She’d just leave at the drop of a hat.

Despite a stiff neck, bowed back and feeling strung out,
my doctor says I’m as fit as a fiddle.

People are shocked when they find out how bad I am as an electrician.

I used to think I was indecisive.
Now I’m not so sure.

If you want to set up a company and run it then that’s your business.

My friend, a milliner, got fired for skiving off work.
She’d just leave at the drop of a hat.

People who use selfie sticks really need to have a good, long look at themselves.

Earth, Venus and Mars were going to organise a party.
Unfortunately nobody knew how to planet.
Jokes about online shopping don’t need much setup.
It’s all in the delivery.
I get really nervous buying groceries online.
I hate putting all my eggs in one basket.
I used to think I was indecisive.
Now I’m not so sure.
Got fired from the calendar factory.
All I did was take a day off.

If you want to set up a company and run it then that’s your business.

I backed a horse last week at 10 to 1.
It came in at quarter past four.

I was addicted to the hokey cokey, but then I turned myself around.

Despite a stiff neck, bowed back and feeling strung out,
my doctor says I’m as fit as a fiddle.

People are shocked when they find out how bad I am as an electrician.

Where sport meets comedy, like Man Utd.

You never forget how to throw a boomerang.
It always comes back to you.

It takes a lot of balls to play golf the way I do.

Iveagh Gardens
July 25th-28th

The Iveagh Gardens is a garden (shocker) smack bang in the middle of Dublin, but it’s hidden away behind the National Concert Hall, so it’s got that cool, “oh you’ve never been to the Iveagh Gardens?” thing going on. The entrance is just off Harcourt Street. We’d tell you how to get there, but come on – it’s the 21st century. Put it into Google Maps.
