Amnesty International Ireland presents a night of comedy in Meeting House Square this August, guaranteed to tickle all funny bones.
Amnesty International Ireland has enrolled some of the top names in Irish comedy for a great night of hilarity on the 26th of August in Meeting House Square in Dublin’s Temple Bar.
Stop! You’re Killing Me will feature the most rib-tickling routines, giggles for good causes and generally getting jolly for justice. All proceeds from this show go directly towards Amnesty’s work protecting human rights and advancing its campaigns in defense of human rights throughout the world.
MC for the evening will be comedienne Tara Flynn, and she will be joined by a stellar line-up which includes Des Bishop, Panti Bliss, Colm O’Regan, and Deirdre O’Kane.
Des Bishop is back in Ireland having spent a year in China and has some fun stories to tell about the trip, including all that he missed about home – democracy, milk, sarcasm and so much more!
Joining Des is Ireland’s high queen, national treasure, performance giant and accidental activist, Panti Bliss, who will perform from her smash hit comedy show, High Heels in Low Places.
They will be joined by one of Ireland’s best known stand-up comedians Deirdre O’Kane – who has recently come back to stand-up after a 6-year break. Deirdre has been busy starring as Mammy Moone in the hilarious Moone Boy.
Completing the stellar line up is a man who knows all about mammies – Irish ones in particular – comedian and creator of the hilarious Irish Mammies bestselling books, Colm O’Regan.
Funds raised from this event will support the Amnesty International Stop Torture campaign as it works to expose governments who torture globally and seek justice for torture survivors.
Stand-up comedians have been supporting Amnesty International Ireland’s Stop! You’re Killing Me event for many years, and the organisers are particularly excited about this year’s line-up!
Stop! You’re Killing Me takes place at 7:30pm on Wednesday, 26th August in Meeting House Square in Temple Bar. Tickets for the event cost €26 and may be reserved online. Get yours now!
