Paddy Power Comedy Festival

Iveagh Gardens
July 27th-30th

Between July 27th and 30th, Paddy Power are taking our side-hustle in internet lols to a literal greener pasture, and hosting some of the biggest names in comedy at the Paddy Power Comedy Festival, in Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens, for 4 nights of stand-up.
Sit near the front, you’ll be fine. Will Smith is not invited.

Earth, Venus and Mars were going to organise a party.
Unfortunately nobody knew how to planet.

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

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

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.

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

Where sport meets comedy, like Man Utd.

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

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

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

Jokes about online shopping don’t need much setup.
It’s all in the delivery.

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

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

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

Jokes about online shopping don’t need much setup.
It’s all in the delivery.
Despite a stiff neck, bowed back and feeling strung out,
my doctor says I’m as fit as a fiddle.
I get really nervous buying groceries online.
I hate putting all my eggs in one basket.

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

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

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

Where sport meets comedy, like Man Utd.

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

You never forget how to throw a boomerang.
It always comes back to you.
My friend, a milliner, got fired for skiving off work.
She’d just leave at the drop of a hat.

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

Earth, Venus and Mars were going to organise a party.
Unfortunately nobody knew how to planet.
I used to think I was indecisive.
Now I’m not so sure.
I backed a horse last week at 10 to 1.
It came in at quarter past four.

Iveagh Gardens
July 27th-30th

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.
