Get ready to laugh your way into 2020 as McGettigan’s JLT has just revealed the line-up for its annual, and very popular, Comedyfest.

Back for its tenth year and taking place on Thursday January 16 and Friday January 17, Comedyfest 2020 is promising the beat those January blues with four funny men in one craic-ing show.

So who can you expect to see? The line-up includes Karl Spain, Danny O'Brien, Al Foran and Joe Rooney – all big names on the Irish comedy scene.

Limerick comedian Karl Spain is no stranger to the Comedyfest stage and has performed all across the globe and is known for his many TV appearances and he'll be joined by Danny O'Brien who’s be called Dublin’s Funniest Comedian, as well as Al Foran – an impressionist with over a whopping 100 different voices.

Foran is known for his hilarious impressions of sports stars and celebrities such as Robert De Niro, Conor McGregor and Mike Tyson to name but a few.

And last, but definitely not least, is Joe Rooney who is arguably best known for his role as Father Damo in the Irish sitcom, Father Ted, and has also headlined at some of the best comedy clubs around the world.

Purse strings already feeling the post-Christmas pinch? Tickets for the show (which can be bought here) come in at a pocket-friendly Dhs50 and include one house drink and if you’re looking for more ways to save cash, McGettigan’s will also be offering a range of mixed drinks, hops, grape and food items for just Dhs20 each between noon and 10pm for the first 20 days of 2020.

This is surely going to be the perfect cure for the January blues – and a bargainous one at that – so head on down for two nights of belly laughs.
