About the event

In Stitches comedy "Stand Up On The Spot" @International Bar(Upstairs):

"Stand Up On The Spot" is a fun, interactive comedy night where stand-up is mixed with audience suggestions. A twist to your comedy experience! In the first half, you'll enjoy a lineup of fantastic comedians delivering their best material. But the fun doesn't stop there! In the second half, get ready for an interactive adventure as the audience suggest two topics into a bucket. One is titled "current events"(anything from the news, sports, gossip column etc.,). and the other one, "chaos"(any topic, phrases or  sentences an audience memeber want to talk about on stage). Let your imagination go wild! Comedians come up with a brand new routine on the spot based on topics presented to them right on stage with the audience chiming in. It's a unique and unpredictable show that guarantees laughs aplenty, a night where the audience becomes the muse, and the laughter becomes a collaborative effort.

He has also shared the stage with some of the biggest names in the business, including hosting in Vicar Street for Tommy Tiernan, as well as supporting Dave McSavage and Andrew Maxwell on tour, and has brought his unique brand of comedy to some of the biggest festivals around, including Forbidden Fruit, The Paddy Power Comedy Festival, Electric Picnic, The Vodafone Comedy Festival, Body and Soul and Otherside Festival.
