FRIDAY 12TH MAY – EARLY SHOW
Doors 7pm / Show at 7:30PM
Craic Den Comedy Club brings the best Irish and international comedians to the stage every week in Dublin city. As seen on their acclaimed TV show on Virgin Media, The Craic Den will deliver you a medicinal dose of laughs all evening long. New line up every week!
Described by the International Comedy Club in Dublin as “One of the best comedy writers in Ireland”, Ger’s material is meticulously crafted and delivered in the kind of playful, tongue-in-cheek style that endears him to audiences of all ages and demographics. Staunton has been performing all over Ireland and the UK as well as doing shows in Brussels, Barcelona, Berlin and is currently working towards his 2nd Edinburgh Fringe Festival show.
“Incredibly funny” The Examiner

Paul Merryck is an Essex based comedian. Feckless, amoral and utterly unabashed, the middle-aged chancer he portrays disdainfully deconstructs the disaster that is his life in a hilarious sequence of gags and anecdotes. He has regularly performed at the Edinburgh Festival and took his first 1-hour show to the Hastings Comedy Festival in June 2018, where the organisers (Chris Young and Jake Alexander) said “This comedian has a joke landing percentage of around 160%. When the set ended we wanted more, and that’s rare”. Kyle Wallace who manages G&B Comedy has also been quoted as follows “Paul Merryck is simply bloody hilarious”.
“The Essex bloke is something of a geezer – destroying no stereotypes there – and has plenty of showbiz patter. He called for three rounds of applause before telling a single joke and flattered the audience for being a sexy-looking bunch. From his gag-focussed delivery, you’d think that the spirit of Mike Reid is alive and well, but he’s self-aware enough to turn the focus inwards, and was probably unlucky not to be placed, given his high laugh rate.”
Steve Bennett, Chortle
