Comedian calls Dubliners a ''bunch of c**ts'', goes on Twitter tirade
Were you at comedian Jen Kirkman's gig this week? Was it bad? We hear it didn't go down to well.
Well, it looks Jen Kirkman didn't think it went too well, either. In fact, the bestselling author had more than a few choice words for Dublin and the country at large. Taking to Twitter after she "bombed", Kirkman got more than a little angry.
Here's a little snifter from her Twitter. NSFW language incoming.
Well, that's not exactly a ringing endorsement. To be fair, we'd laugh at that as well. But wait, there's more...
Oof. Not feeling the fair city, are we?
Don't hold back, Jen. Tell us how you really feel.
Yelling at a crowd. That always works. Good job, Jen.
Look, we've all bad days and taking to Twitter is one way of dealing with it, we guess. Kirkman has since apologised for sending out her tweets, claiming she was drunk. As you do.
So, were you at her gig? Was it really that bad? Let us know in the comments.

I heard she was awful! Sure what can you do when your comedy is crap - blame the crowd for being sexist!!!Posted 09:13 | Sun 27th Jul 2014
She was really really funny and she did really well. I laughed my c***t off!Posted 10:27 | Sun 27th Jul 2014
What a spanner! My Vodafone gig experience lastnight (which did not involve her) reminded me how American comedy is CRAP! Cheap shots, in your face, unintelligent, not current. Irish and uk acts are the only way to hootsville!Posted 12:47 | Sun 27th Jul 2014
I was there, she wasn't all bad. She didnt quite have the measure of the audience. I think she came of as a bit cocky and ill informed about irish people in the first minute are two they wouldnt forgive her. Some of her material was funny. Kevin Gildea was very good. I thought Aidan Bishop was an excellent MC, very calm,relaxed, comfortable, charismatic and he was very well received. I think all of Stuart Francis material was new and very funny- tons of great puns and classic onelinersPosted 15:08 | Sun 27th Jul 2014
I didn't go but I'll definitely go to her next gig. And I'll make sure to laugh extra hard - even at the jokes that aren't funny - so that she feels more comfortable and only has good things to say about the Irish audiences from now on. At the end of the day, that's what it's all about - validating the creative whims of insecure attention-seekers.Posted 15:12 | Mon 28th Jul 2014
