Padraig Williams (@p0dgey1):

“I’m old enough to know I know nothing now but young enough to still risk it all for nothing! We are all eejits in this life and if we weren’t we’d be doing it wrong! I just wanna make the world laugh.”

Al Lubel (@AlLubel):

“Lubel comes off as a kind of neurotic Steve Martin, with a self-referential, self involved style…” – Daryl Jung, Toronto News

Al Lubel became a lawyer to please his mother and a comedian to please himself (which did not please his mother). After graduating from law school in Florida, Al moved to Los Angeles, passed the California Bar Exam on his first try and wouldn’t you know it, immediately began the practice of stand-up comedy.

Lawyer by day and comedian by night, Al was doing justice to neither. At comedy clubs, the crowds would stare, in court, the juries would laugh. Al gradually began getting work on the road, soon becoming a full-time comic. “I realized I had to give up the practice of law when clients began calling me for legal advice at places like the St. Louis Funny Bone.”

So, Al quit the law. This was a good decision, because within a year he won the $100,000 Grand Prize for comedy on Star Search. Doing the “The Tonight Show” was a childhood fantasy, so when Al heard that Johnny Carson was retiring, he auditioned and became one of the last comics to appear with Johnny. More recently, Al just made his fifth appearance on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Even though comedy is his first love, Al admits to missing the practice of law. “I’d like to have one more trial, something serious like a murder trial because as my client’s fate hangs in the balance I’d like to see his reaction when I whisper in his ear…I’m a comedian!”

“Al Lubel synthesizes and celebrates the calmer components of the analytic neurotic. Take his reincarnation bit: “I just want to live forever. I was thinking about believing in reincarnation but I realize that won’t help me because even if I existed in the past, I don’t remember who I was, so how does that guy know he’s me now? So even if I exist in the future, if I don’t remember I was me, what good is it? Because remember Descartes the philosopher? He proved existance. He stated, I think, therefore I am. Well I’ve added to that my own reincarnation nonexistance theory, which states, “I forgot, therefore I’m not.” Al goes for the comedy jugular, tackling his self created worst case scenarios with logic that makes eerie sense.” – Merrill Hope, Drama-Logue

“Al Lubel is a terrifically funny comedian.” – David Letterman

MC:

– Connor McDonough-Flynn (@ConMcFlynn)

Connor McDonough-Flynn’s been a comedian for 6+ years. He’s gigged all around Ireland and Internationally.

His comedy is bizarre, bold and (un)balanced – he’s an arguably debatable spectator tempter. Connor will have you laughing away as he deals with the debaucherous topics that present themselves daily. The stimulating humdrum thoughts that arouse bemusement. And the oddball anecdotes that evoke howls, from the mouths, on your face. There’s a means to his madcap manoeuvres.

He put on his first solo show (hour special): “I’m Not Special” at The Workman’s Club in Dublin on the 13th of March, 2015.

He’s since began touring:  “I’m Not Special” bringing 5-shows to the Galway Fringe Festival in July, 2015.

– Finalist in the – Finalist in the Forbidden Fruit Comedy Talent Search.

“…incredibly funny and engaging…” – Trip Advisor

“…hilarious as he interacts with audience.” – Trip Advisor

“…the man with the longest name/craziest eyes in comedy…” – Danny O’Hanlon
