Irish comedy in Dubai

Dubai's newest Irish bar opens its doors for an Irish comedyfest

Suffering from post-Christmas, post-NYE blues? Nothing to look forward to? Well, worry ye not: Irish comedians PJ Gallagher (pictured), Jason Byrne, Dermot Whelan, Paddy Courtney and Eric Lalor are heading to Dubai. Between rounds of golf and some early-season sunbathing, the group will be doing a four-night stand-up stint at the Bonnington Hotel. Dermot Whelan will be doing a lone show on January 6, another show with Eric Lalor and Jason Byrne on January 7, followed by Eric Lalor, Paddy Courtney and PJ Gallagher on January 8, and finally all five comedians will take to the stage on January 9.

Irish Comedyfest is on January 6-9 at McGettigan’s Pub at the Bonnington Hotel, Jumeirah Lakes Towers.
