Paddy Power Comedy Festival

Iveagh Gardens
July 21st-24th

Between July 21st and 24th, 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.

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

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

Where sport meets comedy, like Man Utd.

Jokes about online shopping don’t need much setup.
It’s all in the delivery.
The price of amputations is shocking.
They can cost an arm and a leg.

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

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

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

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

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

Earth, Venus and Mars were going to organise a party.
Unfortunately nobody knew how to planet.
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 backed a horse last week at 10 to 1.
It came in at quarter past four.

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

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

The price of amputations is shocking.
They can cost an arm and a leg.
Earth, Venus and Mars were going to organise a party.
Unfortunately nobody knew how to planet.
I get really nervous buying groceries online.
I hate putting all my eggs in one basket.

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.
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.
Despite a stiff neck, bowed back and feeling strung out,
my doctor says I’m as fit as a fiddle.
Got fired from the calendar factory.
All I did was take a day off.
My friend, a milliner, got fired for skiving off work.

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

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

Where sport meets comedy, like Man Utd.

Iveagh Gardens
July 21st-24th

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.

FAQs

Thursday 9th June at 10am.

Each show is individually priced, so the answer is ‘it varies, but between €10 and €35’.

Nope, sorry. Let the adults have their fun.

No, but there’ll be bars and food stalls inside.

Then come to the festival and get chatting (not during the performances though).
