Comedy date night at The International Bar

12 Dates of Crimbo

The International Bar has developed a reputation for being the original home of Irish comedy. Bringing together some of Ireland’s best talent for shows such as The Comedy Cellar, The International Comedy Club and The Dublin Comedy Improv, the Wicklow Street bar has live entertainment seven nights a week.

While I was enticed by the idea of receiving a free beer at the door for their Comedy Improv, it was not the show that tickled our fancy. Honestly, I think there would have been far too many opportunities for us to be singled out of the crowd.

We opted for The Comedy Cellar instead, which has been housed in the International Bar for more than 30 years. Being Ireland’s longest running comedy club, it would have been rude not to start there – at least that’s what we told ourselves!

The Comedy Cellar runs every Tuesday and Wednesday night and is hosted by Davey Reilly. Every set has a mix between up and coming comedians and well established artists. We were lucky enough to be blessed with the talent of Emma Dornan, who in the end, did single us out from the crowd in the most gas possible way.

In a nutshell, comedy night in The International is a cheap and cheerful date night idea particularly for the festive season! Best part? You can usually pay at the door for no more than a tenner which is an absolute steal for the talent you get! 🙂
