“Get Up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s” craics the funny bone!

Get Up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s” craics the funny bone!

Last night, the 25th of October, was the last night of the “Get Up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s” comedy night. Awe (pause for emotion)…

For the last two years Garvey’s has been the premier open mic night in Galway, and now it’s time for greener pastures, like everyone’s first dog.

Was a class auld evening, candles were lit, the postage stamp stage was in the spotlight, the audience tingling with anticipation and the usual suspects were in, i.e. Dermot Roche, John O’ Hare, Danny O’ Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, my self, and Paul Marsh had his first and last performance on the Garvey’s stage.

The charity Canteen was in and they raised the roof of the night. Canteen‘s a great cause that supports teenagers with cancer (http://www.canteen.ie/).

As comedians got up and down, the clock ticked closer to the end and after I finished up the night with the crowd pleasing “Wank to Finish” and “Uterus Man” jokes, the curtains closed.

Thankfully, through all the sentimentality, people were able to back their tears… though John O’ Hare did go on a hugging spree, but it would’ve been strange if he hadn’t.

The charity made off with ample donations, the comedians got laughs, pints and craic were had, belly laughs were plentiful, all and all it was a wonderful way to close the doors to “Get Up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s”.

Do not fret comedy goers, like the saying goes: when one door closes a new one opens and the one that opens will be “Unhinged”. The “Unhinged” Comedy Club will be starting on the 8th of November downstairs in The Cellar Bar. It’s going to be a weekly gig, held every week… on Thursdays. There’s going to be local sponsors, prizes and drink given out to the audience members, and of course, top notch stand up comedy for all to enjoy. The night is going to be a €5 in, and comedians from all over the country will be gracing this new comedy clubs stage.

Before I go, thanks to everyone who supported “Get Up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s” over the past two years and made the night the “Comical Comicality” that it was. Comical Comicality…? Ah alliteration. Hope to see you all in The Cellar.
