Comedy night in Kilkenny

Big Mike’s at it again! The Kilkenny comedian has organised another hour of stand up from a select bunch who will come together to provide an excellent evening of entertainment for the local audience.

The seventh in the series, the now monthly offering takes place at Ryan’s Bar this Saturday from 8.30pm. Michael Rice himself is in the hosting slot. Originally from a farm in the county, he honed his comedic skill in Chicago over two years where he also dabbled in some improv.

Back home he’s been bringing the laughs to points in the UK and across Ireland, including at the Vodafone Comedy Carnival in Galway last month where he was part of a showcase that also featured Johnny Graham, Sean Nolan, Stephen Bradley, John Spillane, Hannah Mamalis and Bernard Casey.

He’s also, of course, been organising his own event here in Kilkenny and will be joined this time around by guests which include fellow cat Sarah O’Gorman with Brian O’Toole & Mr Hennessy with Kevin O’Sullivan headlining. Show time is 8.30pm.

Meanwhile, other later local dates sees him at Cleere’s Bar & Theatre on December 14 and in Lisdowney on December 22 before the last Comedy Hour of the year on December 29.
