Kingdom Comedy Club Bring The Laughs To Killarney

Published

on

The Kingdom Comedy Club opened its doors to the public on Saturday June 2nd, upstairs in The Eviston House Hotel, smack bang in the heart of Killarney.

The brainchild of local businessman Tony Dunne (owner of network marketing agency Kingdom Media) & Cork comedian and promoter Cornelius 'Family Guy' O' Sullivan, the club is initially running for the 5 Saturdays in June but hopes to extend its stay for long after 

So, how did a blow-in Kerryman (Tony) and a Corkman (Cornelius) get together in the first place and dream up this hair brained scheme? Good question! The answer is simple their collective love for stand up comedy. They both met a few years back at a show Cornelius was performing in and ended up bonding over a few pints and have been pals ever since. These guys simply love comedy and after a chat one day they decided that it was time to set the wheels in motion and open up a comedy club!!! Tony being a well respected business man in the town located a venue and looked after all the administration, branding, nitty gritty & bits and pieces that are essential to make the comedy nights happen, and Cornelius with 10 years experience on the Irish circuit cultivates the gigs, hand picking the very best of national and international talent, while hosting the shows too.

It's a marriage made in heaven; a modern day bromance (both their wives are just happy to be rid of them and out of the house every Saturday night!). The shows start at 9pm and the doors open at 8:30pm and initially for the first run of shows it is FREE entry. The dream is to have a regular comedy club in Kerry, and Killarney is the ideal spot as it is a vibrant and energetic town, and hopefully the local community will get behind these two dreamers and support another local business trying to make its way in the world. More information can be found on their website www.kingdomcomedyclub.com or you can follow their Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/kingdomcomedyclub/ and also on Instagram, Twitter, YouTube and TripAdvisor.

So, come on down, grab a drink, take a seat and have a good old laugh for yourself! 

Life is short.

County Kerry is now bearing the full brunt of Storm Barra and the Kerry Severe Weather Coordination Team reminds everyone that a Status RED weather warning, the highest such warning, remains in place for Kerry until 9pm.

Kerry County Council is advising people to avoid the Ballycasheen area of Killarney

Due to the significant risk to life and property, members of the public should remain indoors and not travel for the rest of the evening. Everyone is advised to follow updates on weather warnings from Met Éireann as well as the local media and social media.

There are an increasing number of roads closed or blocked because of fallen trees, electricity poles and spot flooding. Council crews will respond to issues when it is safe to do so and with the assistance of other agencies where required.

The N71 road at the Suspension Bridge in Kenmare remains closed to traffic as does the N70 Tralee to Castlemaine Road at the hairpin bends. There are a significant number of local and regional and local roads blocked or partially blocked by fallen trees, electricity poles and debris in all parts of the county so travel should be avoided.

The Ballycasheen Road in Killarney and Main Street in Ballybunion (and the surrounding area) should be avoided due to concerns about potential falling debris.

The Council’s emergency contact number is 066 7183588 and it will be operational through this evening and tonight.

Fallen electricity wires/poles and power outages should be reported to ESB Networks on 1800 372 999.
