Making people laugh is harder than it looks.
But if you’ve always found it easy to get a chuckle from your nearest and dearest, now there’s a chance to try out your best material in front of a live audience.
“The Irish comedy scene is not known for being female-friendly, and it can be disheartening for women to get involved in it.” organiser Carrie Sully told us.
“This night aims to provide an encouraging space for women (or nonbinary people) who want to try their hand at stand-up.”
“It’s a small room with a very friendly crowd and there are spots for all levels of comedian.”
Entry to the event is free and everyone is welcome to attend, so if you enjoy comedy it’s a fun night out too. To sign up for a five-minute spot, message the Instagram page @giving_lip_comedy.
