About this event

Not only Irish eyes will be smiling this St. Patrick’s Day. Come get a blast of blarney and Irish laughter just in time for the big day. The Real Irish Comedy Fest showcases the best blend of Irish Comedic talent, accents included and is coming to Santa Cruz for one night only! 

Lineup:

From Longford, Ireland, Sean Finnerty decided to move stateside where a series of mature decisions that he failed to make led him to stand-up comedy. Recently he was rewarded for his efforts as he became the first ever Irish comedian to perform on the Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon (2019). Spending his first number of years in comedy based out of Orlando, Sean was selected for Comedy Central’s Up Next competition, made his television debut as co-host of Season 9 of Fireball Run on Amazon Prime.  In 2016 Sean moved to New York where he quickly became known as one to watch, performing at famous venues such as The Comedy Cellar, Gotham Comedy Club, Carolines on Broadway, The Stand and The Friars Club. Recently, he has also performed at several festivals including Laugh Your Asheville Off (2017)  Edinburgh Fringe (2018) and Electric Picnic (2018), along with making it to the semi finals of the nationwide talent search Stand Up NBC. A keen eye for detail Sean has also developed a reputation as a Roaster and is currently the number 1 ranked roast comic in New York City.

From Dubin, Ireland Martin Angolo is an award winning comedian who is a regular at comedy clubs and festivals all over Ireland and the UK. He appeared on RTE 2's panel show ‘Clear History’ in 2021 and ‘The Deirdre O’Kane Show’ for SKY. He has written and performed comedy for BBC radio, hosts his own podcast “The Substantial Meal” and has had millions of views weekly as a regular contributor of the “Try” Youtube channel. He has supported comedians Eric Andre, Marc Maron, Aziz Ansari and David O’Doherty on their tours. His own live shows play to full rooms at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and sells out all over Ireland, Europe and America.

“Martin is hilarious and is an Irish national treasure” – Eric Andre

“Laser-sharp wit” - The Independent. 

From Dublin, Ireland Dave Nihill is the first ever-Irish winner of the prestigious San Francisco International Comedy Competition, runner up in the NPR, the Moth’s largest US Grandslam storytelling competition, and the first ever-Irish comedian to have a special on Dar Bar Comedy.
