Stand up comedy from the Stars of Fr Ted featuring...
Patrick McDonnell (Eoin McLove
Patrick is no stranger to our television screens from his hilarious characters on 'Naked Camera'  to his appearances on The Savage Eye & Irish Pictorial Weekly. 
Based on Irish singer Daniel O”Donnell,  Eoin McLove is a sickly-sweet television presenter and pop singer whose only popularity is amongst middle-aged women. He is completely dependent on others to perform even the simplest tasks for him, such as opening doors. He visits the Parochial House when Mrs Doyle, implausibly, wins a poetry competition. Bizarrely, he tries to justify his obtuse behaviour by saying, quite simply: "I've no willy”. 
However, if you haven't seen his unique brand of stand-up comedy, you're truly missing out.  
Michael Redmond (Fr Stone
There are not many people who have been struck by lightning and lived to tell the tale. While this may not have actually happened to Michael Redmond himself, it is a fate which befell his character Father Stone - one of the more memorable creations of Father Ted.
An exceedingly boring priest who comes to stay at the parochial house every year, he is completely unable to hold a conversation and is more than happy just to sit and do /say nothing at all, giving one-sentence answers at best, something along the lines of "No. I'm fine". 
MC Joe Rooney (Fr Damo
Joe has appeared in the hit RTE comedy series,"Killinaskully" as the character "Timmy Higgins" and also featured in the stand up show "The Liffey Laugh" on RTE 2 but perhaps it is as Fr Damo in Fr Ted that Joe is best known. 
A plucky character, Fr Damo is Dougal's role model. More of a football casual than a priest, he sports an earring, loves  Oasis,  smokes cigarettes and steals a whistle. 
Tuesday 23rd February 
8.30pm, €12.50 / 10 online 
Stay on FREE for SILENT DISCO after the show.

Tedfest 2016 "Toilet Duck Award"  
Stand Up comedy competition featuring 8 of Ireland’s finest up and coming stand up comedians battle it out in a comedic war of wits until there’s only one left standing. 
This glorious victor will walk away with the spoils of war – gigs at Vodafone Comedy Carnival 2016 in October, a bag of cash, the coveted Toilet Duck Award trophy, bragging rights and filthy looks from their losers friends. 
You decide who wins, just show up & get your vote 
 
Venue: Roisin Dubh, Dominick Street
Hosted by  Steve Bennett 
Wednesday 24th February 
8.30pm, €8 on the door (includes a FREE Jager)
