The Craic Comedy Festival
with Maeve Higgins

Thursday, January 30 | 7:30 pm

"Higgins is rarer than a blessing of unicorns...she is original and relatively calm, her observations are pithy, her wit delicate, her persona oddly alluring and deftly honest." - The Irish Times

Cork comedy star Maeve Higgins headlines the fourth annual Craic Comedy Festival. Whether writing behind the scenes in her Irish Times column, offering tongue-in-cheek advice on TV, or performing at festivals in Edinburgh, Melbourne or New Zealand, Higgins’ uses her brilliant turn of phrase, conversational style and celebration of the mundane to entertain and charm audiences worldwide.

Featuring stand up, new writing and readings from Higgins’ bestselling book We have a good time…don’t we?, the Craic Comedy Festival is sure to provide lots of laughs as she drags you into her daydreamy world with hilarious consequences.

Opening for Maeve is Kevin Flynn (Comedy Central, VH1).

Stick around after the show for a reception, courtesy of Tullamore Dew Whiskey, from 9 pm-10:30 pm.
