About the event

Stitches Comedy Club at The Workman's Cellar

Every last monday of the month, 10 comedians try to beat our gong. The way the show works is four random people from the audience are picked as our judges for the night and will be handed a paddle. Each comedian has to  last 5 minutes on our stage and will be given a 2-minute grace period. After the 2 minutes, the judges will raise their paddle to vote off a comedian if they don't like the comedian on stage. 

The winner of the night will enter into the Grand Final of the Gong Show with a chance to win 150euros.

(Our Hosts ) 

Craig Moran 

is Irish Comedian that started doing stand up late in life. He was the funny kid in a family of seven, he was the class clown in school and was always the funny friend in in his cirle. All of this prepared him to do stand up comedy when he finally quit his bar management job and persued his dreams of being a comedian.  Craig is a regular in all the major comedy clubs in Ireland, gigging with some of the best acts the country. On stage he is ridiculous, silly and has a lot of energy when he tells stories or he gets into a bit. He also hosts weekly Quiz and Bingo events in the city centre

Emman Idama

Emman is a strong name in the Irish Comedy seen, nominated for Irish Comedian Of The Year 2020 & 2021, Chortle Finalist 2019, and many other more awards, he has open for some of the big names in comedy and sports like Seann Walsh, Eric Cantona and more.

'Emman Idama is a more effervescent source of energy, just the thing to keep the spirits up. Idama establishes himself as a warm, charming and thoroughly engaging performer.' - Chortle
