Bad Ass Comedy Cafe | Gigs coming soon!
Words: Robin Murray
Food is good. Comedy is good. Food and comedy together is great. The Bad Ass Café in Dublin's Temple Bar hosts live comedy every Saturday night, while still serving food, and they've lined up top comics to have you spitting up your Coke and choking on your burger.
Seasoned comedian Kevin Gildea plays on the 23rd of March, followed by Andrew Stanley on 30th March and Simon O'Keefe on 6th April.
No stranger to the stage, Kevin Gildea set up The Comedy Cellar in the International Bar along with Ardal O'Hanlon and Barry Murphy in the early 90's and has been performing stand-up ever since.
Gildea is fairly well-known from his TV appearances, perhaps best of all for playing Father Cave in Father Ted (the priest who confesses his undying love for his friend and fellow priest in the Flight into Terror episode).
His stand-up style is whimsical and mad-cap and delightfully unconventional. A great tonic for anyone fed up with comedians who just talk about The Wife/The Girlfriend/The Kids etc.
Some of you may know Andrew Stanley from RTÉ2's I Dare Ya, a prank show in which he appeared alongside Aussie comedian Damian Clarke.
But while the curly-haired comic makes appearances on TV, Stanley's dayjob is stand-up; heruns both Mish Mash on a Tuesday and The Comedy Cellar of a Wednesday in the International Bar, utilising his energy and joi de vivre to make audience sit up and take notice.
Simon O'Keefe is a baby-faced comic from Waterford, who's been professional since 2004, mostly making a living touring Ireland. A resident MC in comedy clubs in Dublin and Waterford, O'Keefe has a lot of experience for one so young with dublinks.com raving about his "Incomparable skills as compère".
Tickets for all three shows can be bought from this site!
