SATURDAY 18TH MARCH – PADDY’S WEEKEND SPECIAL!! (EARLY SHOW)
Doors 5:30pm / Show at 6PM
It’s PADDY’S WEEKEND! Saint Paddy eradicated the snakes from Ireland and brought the good word of our Lord to the pagan polytheistic peasants of the land. To celebrate Paddy the legend, we are bringing you three of Irelands finest comedians. And an Australian. Paddy’s Day isn’t just about pints and shamrocks, it’s about the craic. While we have no idea what St Paddy was really like, we can only assume he would want you to celebrate his missions struggle in Ireland’s top comedy club. Praise Paddy with a belly full of laughs.
