Fat Chancers

Comedians Karl Spain and Bernard O’Shea have decided to drop a few pounds together and go on tour.

The hopefully trimmed down duo take to the stage at 8pm. Booking by phone at 01-8832100.

Bite Me

This is the story of Joanne McNally’s amaaaaaaazing diet. She didn’t just lose weight though; she lost jobs, friends and fellas, but she didn’t care because she could wear bangles as belts and that’s all that mattered. Then one day, over her morning carrot, Joanne realized she’d lost her mind. Trying to entice it back became the hardest, funniest, greatest and weirdest time of her life.

It’s taking place at Axis Ballymun at 8pm on Thursday, November 9. Tickets €15/€12. Booking by phone at 01-8832100.

This Beach

This is a blistering satire of white western privilege made in response to the global refugee crisis and the notion of sovereignty of one people over a piece of land; and the lengths people will go to bar entry to their dominion.

Performed by Brokentalkers in association with Project Arts Centre, This Beach was written and directed by Feidlim Cannon and Gary Keegan.

It’s happening in Draoicht, Blanchardstown, on Friday, November 10 at 8pm. Tickets cost €18. Book online at
