If you haven’t gone to a comedy show before then you’re in for a treat!
Looking for something different to do on your night out in Cork? Searching for a memorable date-night in the city? If so then look no further, because we’ve got just the ticket.
You might not have guessed it, but the comedy scene in Cork is absolutely thriving at the moment and if you haven’t been to one before, it’s honestly such fun night out!
We’ve taken the liberty of compiling a list of our favourite comedy clubs/shows in the city (in no particular order):
City Limits Comedy Club
Now in it’s 28th year running, City Limits is a staple comedy club in Cork. Located on Couberg Street, the space is large enough to hold 200 people but still intimate enough to see the passion in the comics eye. Check out their website here for upcoming gigs.
CoCo Comedy Club
Located inside The Roundy in Cork, a night at the CoCo Comedy Club is guaranteed to leave you in stitches. They have four different comedy show experiences each week from Thursday – Sunday, from up-and-comers to more experienced comedians. See their site here for the weekly lineup.
Comedy Cabaret is Cork’s newest comedy club located upstairs in the stunning Pavilion bar on Carey’s Lane. The night runs once a month and features 5-6 comedians ranging in style and experience with a main headliner each month. Check out their Instagram for updates on their next monthly show.
