Craic Den Comedy Club – DAVID MCSAVAGE + Special Guests!
Friday 18th February | The Vintage Room | 8PM
Craic Den Comedy Club brings the best Irish and international comedians to the stage every week in Dublin city. As seen on their acclaimed TV show on Virgin Media, The Craic Den will deliver you a medicinal dose of laughs all evening long. New line up every week!
David McSavage is a self proclaimed national treasure. It has been said he is to comedy what the Abbey is to theatre. Maybe because he believes he’s more important than he is, or that the majority of the country doesn’t care about him.
But unlike the Abbey Theatre, Davids best days aren’t behind him, his intention is for you the audience member to feel “wow that was one of the funniest things Ive ever seen, it was so original, courageous, and yet very flawed. I would really like to be his friend”
A regular guest on TV and radio shows in Ireland for many years, David has also appeared at all the major comedy festivals including the Edinburgh Festival and internationally in Australia, Germany, Japan and Scandinavia. As an actor, this year he features in the film Calvary by John Michael McDonagh starring Brendan Gleeson. His other recent film roles in Traders, Gold and Our Robot Overlords.
The Savage Eye (RTÉ), has been critically acclaimed was nominated for an IFTA award for Best Entertainment Series and Best Director.
After diving into the Irish comedy scene in February 2018, Kerry native Gillian Fitzgerald has brought her razor-sharp wit and hilarious anecdotes to audiences across the country and beyond.
Gillzie has performed on famous stages in Dublin, such as The Comedy Crunch, Cherry Comedy, Riff Raff and the Comedy Cellar. Gillian has performed to international audiences in New York City, Madrid, and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Despite his appearance he is not in a Proclaimers tribute band, nor as he ever attempted to walk 500 miles for anything, especially a fleeting romantic encounter which would probably result in nothing more than swollen feet. Monaghan born James doesn’t tiptoe around any subject, if you enjoy dark humour, Cadden does not disappoint!
Aussie Damo Clark has become one of the hottest tickets in comedy clubs and festivals. Winner of the People’s Choice Award at the Edinburgh Fringe, his last solo show toured all over Ireland, the UK, Europe and Australia plus guest spots in the US.
Clark has featured in Comedy Central’s Damo Does Edinburgh, Irish TV’s Republic of Telly, I Dare Ya, Comedy Central’s Seann Walsh World and wrote and co-starred in Virgin Media’s Craic Den Comedy Club TV series.
