“Got Em’ Laughing” at The International Comedy Club

The first Inter gig has come and gone, and the yearning for the next gig has set in. The hardest part of being a comedian is being able to be a comedian, and the main ingredients in the comedian recipe are: stage time and an audience, The International had an ample supply of both.

The night started off a bit chaotic, after a botched gig that never happened, I hurried my way to Wicklow Street for my second booked gig of the evening. I rushed up the stairs and was met by Danny O’ Brien, the evenings MC; thankfully there was time to compose myself, get a pint, and have a few smokes before my 7-minute open spot.

Johnny Candon closed the first half in flying form, leaving an audience member on the floor after they fell off their stool…

The Inter is a daunting venue, the place was wedged, and the audience is right on top of the stage, which makes for a class atmosphere, and what makes the International such a superb venue for comedy.

The history of the place got the butterflies fluttering in the stomach, the nerves were tangible in an exciting fashion; I would’ve rendered myself deceased if they weren’t…

Danny O’ Brien kicked off the second half, got the audience going and introduced my goofy head to a boisterous welcome; I took the stage and found form and “Got Em Laughing”…

I started off well, gauged the audience, moved on to the ‘Buses’ bit, which went down well and allowed me to quiet down some chatty old one’s from Essex who were chirping away at the corner of the stage. ‘Lassie’ went down a treat. I ended with ‘Guns in Ireland’ and walked off stage to the audience’s applause, delighted with the evening’s events.

The evening’s headliner Jarlath Regan complimented my short set with a handshake as he prepared to take the stage.

Was a fantastic night, thanks to Aidan Bishop for giving me a spot, can’t wait to get back on The International Comedy Club’s stage, was a pleasure filled experience, just like…

About ConMcFlynn

Connor McDonough-Flynn first began performing in Los Angeles in 2007. He then moved back to Ireland after a few year hiatus he continued on his journey as a stand up comedian in January 2011. He’s performed in England, Amsterdam, Spain, and all over Ireland. He’s supported such acts as Maeve Higgins and John Colleary.

Connor ran and organized the “Get up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s” comedy night in Garvey’s Bar, Galway. He ran and organized the “Unhinged Comedy Club” in The Cellar Bar. He was at the heart of the comedy scene in Galway. Now, he’s living in Dublin…

His comedy is brainy, 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 smiles, from the lips, on your face. There’s a means to his madcap manoeuvres.
