We’re hugely excited to announce that the annual McGettigan’s Comedyfest is back for another year! Comedyfest has been a benchmark in the Dubai calendar every January for the past 5 years and 2016 will be no exception.
This year’s Comedyfest line-up is stronger than ever with favourites such as Eric Lalor from RTE’s Fair City TV show, Karl Spain, and Après Match star Barry Murphy. This year, we’re also excited to welcome the immensely popular comedy three-piece Foil, Arms & Hog to the shows! For those who haven’t heard of them: Sean Finegan (Foil), Conor McKenna (Arms), and Sean Flanagan (Hog) form Irish sketch group Foil, Arms & Hog. They met each other at university and since their formation have been touring and doing live shows in Ireland, the UK, the US, and Australia. Over the last eight years and they’ve received critical acclaim and we can’t wait to see them perform live on stage in The Baggot, McGettigan’s JLT.
The festival takes place on Thursday 14th and Friday 15th January 2016 at McGettigan’s JLT at the Bonnington. The laughs kick off at 9 p.m., but door open at 7 p.m. already.
Tickets are available in the pub and are only AED 50 each – for that, you’ll get great comedy, and either a complimentary house beverage or a BBQ burger.
