The McGettigan’s Comedyfest 2015 is coming!

The annual McGettigan’s Comedyfest is back for its 5th year running at McGettigan’s in Dubai’s JLT neighbourhood!

As always, it features a heavyweight lineup of some of Ireland’s best-loved comedians. The 2015 lineup includes headline act Barry Murphy from Irish television feature “Après Match” alongside Karl Spain, Eric Lalor, Gearoid Farrelly, and Colum McDonnell.

Comedy Fest 2015 FB Flyer

This year the Comedyfest will be held in an all-new room at McGettigan’s JLT. It will be the very first event held in this new venue. The new room is an extension to the famous Irish bar and has been styled to house the best live music concerts, comedy shows and sporting occasions.

 “We have a serious demand for events and concerts in JLT, so we have designed a purpose-built venue at the pub to house these shows. The new room at JLT is an exciting new addition to the venue and we are extremely excited to show it off”, said McGettigan’s CEO, Dennis McGettigan.

The McGettigan’s Comedyfest 2015 takes place on the 8th and 9th January with tickets priced at just AED50 which includes the show and a free drink or BBQ burger.

In keeping with tradition, McGettigan’s has kept the ticket price for the Comedyfest low as an annual “thank you” to everyone for all the support shown to McGettigan’s throughout the previous year. Tickets are priced at only AED50 including entry to the comedy gig and a choice of a free drink or BBQ burger on the house!

This is an increasingly popular event and was a complete sell out last year, so we highly recommend you purchase your tickets early to avoid disappointment. Tickets will be on sale exclusively from McGettigan’s in Jumeirah Lakes Towers.
