I’ve had a few students asking me about comedy gigs lately so I’ve searched high and low to find you the best laughs in the land. Maeve Higgins is one of the funniest people on the island and her show is a must see. The gig isn’t happening this week or next but if you want tickets you better get them soon as this will sell out.
In this latest show Maeve talks about the curse of over-politeness (she thanks bank machines) and how to make a baby like you (simply whisper ‘I’m your real Mamma’ into their baby ears). She has a chilling encounter with some malevolent dolphins, she gets a stalker who won’t commit and she has a fight with a packet of biscuits. Through it all, she wonders at the wisdom of having a job that involves telling strangers personal things at night time and the curious magic of having countless, lookalike sisters. If you fancy a laugh, it’s definitely worth the price of admission.
