Cult sketch comedy group Diet of Worms venture into the world of theatre this September as part of the 2010 Dublin ABSOLUT Fringe. The Worms formed in 2006 when Philippa Dunne, Amy Stephenson, Rory Connolly, Niall Gaffney and Shane Langan met and began writing together. The group have since been regulars on the Irish comedy circuit and have also taken three full length shows to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival. One of their most interesting shows took place in 2007 when they performed ‘Diet of Worms on (Melted) Ice’ completely in a swimming pool. For the last two years, they have hosted the popular monthly Puffincat Comedy Club, which has featured many of the UK and Ireland’s best comedians, including Maeve Higgins, Pappy’s Fun Club and Tim Key. In 2008 the group also enjoyed a guest residency at the Carlsberg Comedy Carnival.
