After the sell out success of his shows here in October comedy superstar John Bishop has announced 2 extra shows of his WINGING IT tour in Belfast & Dublin this January. On announcing Winging It, John said: “I am delighted by the reaction to Winging It and can’t wait to bring the show back to Belfast and Dublin in January, where the tour began. The people of Ireland are always a great crowd to perform to and it’s going to be a fantastic couple of nights. It’s been three years since my last live tour and it’s great to be back out on the road, performing in front of live audiences. I’ve had nightly standing ovations, the audience has been overwhelming.” Winging It sees John back on stage for his fifth UK & Ireland tour, performing in his own inimitable style. His last tour ‘Supersonic’ was watched by more than 500,000 people and received huge critical acclaim. ‘Rollercoaster’ in 2012 was another sell out, and followed the successes of his ‘Sunshine’ tour in 2011 and the ‘Elvis Has Left The Building’ show in 2010, for which he was nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award.

One of Britain’s best loved comedians, the multi award winning actor, writer, director, author and producer Peter Kay, is finally returning to his most successful hobby, stand-up. His last tour in 2010, which still officially ranks with the Guinness Book of World Records as the biggest selling comedy tour of all time, played to over 1.2 million people. So why a return to stand-up now? Peter says: ‘I really miss it. I know how lucky I am to be making television series and have really loved these past few years working on Car Share but I miss doing stand-up. As terrifying as it is, when it works there’s nothing more fun and exciting. Plus, a lot has happened in the last eight years, with Trump, Twitter and my Nan getting her front bush trimmed at the age of 96. I can’t wait to get back up on stage’

One day Neil’s dad asked him to help deliver the Meals on Wheels. He agreed. Little did they know that their lives would never be the same again. Except for the bits of their lives that didn’t change.

Ed Byrne is coming to Cool FM Comedy Club! Most recently seen on Dara & Ed’s Road To Mandalay and various Mock The Weeks, Ed Byrne’s multiple BBC TV appearances have made him a household name. Ed remains THE observational stand up to see and his live shows are not to be missed! “I originally intended to call the show, “I’ll Millennial You in a Minute”, but my promoter considered the title, ‘off-puttingly baffling.’  That’s my own chainsaw in the photo, by the way.” (Ed Byrne) “Comedy’s Holy Grail” (Sunday Times) Guideline age limit 16+.

‘The Man With Three Brains’ is a brand new show from the highly acclaimed and extremely funny, Jason Byrne. Jason has three brains which kick into action when he hits the stage. His left brain scans the audience and room, looking for improv moments. His right brain collates stand-up material and stunts, poised to dish out the funnies at speed. His centre brain is Jason’s coach, pushing him to the limit. This show will peel back the madness inside Jason Byrne’s head to reveal all three brains working individually. The fastest thinking comic around will not only trip himself up, but probably you too. It’s been a busy few years for Byrne.  In addition to his extensive touring worldwide, his Radio 2 show was awarded the UK radio industry’s prestigious Sony Radio Gold Award.  As well as fronting a brand new studio based comedy chat show Jason Byrne’s Snaptastic Show for TV3, he is co-host of Sky’s hugely popular new entertainment programme Wild Things on Sky1. Also seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC1), The Royal Variety Show (ITV1), The John Bishop Show (BBC1), and Father Figure (BBC1) of which he is creator and star.
