Top comedy for Tullamore venue

There are bound to be a lot of laughs at The Wolftrap in Tullamore later this month. On Thursday, April 26 the Real Comedy Central returns to the pub, bringing with it talent in the shape of "Come Dine with Me" winner Danny Dowling along with Tedfest winner FJ Murray.

Organiser and of the event Jonathan Sheehan will be MC on the night, which has no cover charge yet promises spot prizes and surprises. Hieadline act Danny Dowling may be remembered by many as the Galway based New Zealand comic who garnered the highest score in the Irish version of "Come Dine with Me" thanks in part to the 250 custard pies he entertained his guests with. Danny has supported Tommy Tiernan and The Rubberbandits, and has recently been described by The Guardian newspaper as the most exciting thing in comedy.

Also on the bill is FJ Murray, who has been described as being like a cross between Dermot Morgan and Fr Brian Darcy. The Tedfest winner is a former priest turned comedian and has been steadily making a name for himself in comedy clubs from Slane to San Francisco while based in Navan.

The show kicks off on the night at 9.30pm, with doors opening at 9pm.
