Unhinged Comedy’s Lineup:

– Robert Coyle (@ComedianRobert):

While looking down the barrel of being 40 and truly knowing that all this was going to end one day; that as Jim Morrisson said “No-one here gets out alive”, that he was definitely going to die, Robert Coyle thought he’d ditch his day job in Advertising and become a comedian. Time will tell whether that was a smart, brave move or just fucking delusional. Since then Robert has gigged all over Ireland and the UK and has performed solo shows twice at the Edinburgh Fringe. Every Saturday he performs one of his 2 new solo 90 minute shows; “Numinous” or “Being Wrong Is Right”, depending on his mood, in Accent’s café to a sober audience – he compares it to training at altitude. On Thursday’s he performs as part of the comedy residency “Light, Dark, Dangerous, and a Little Bit Gay” in The Underground Comedy Club in Dublin Citi Hotel on Dame Street.

He’s not strictly a comedian, he is more of a Stand-Up philosopher. Unfortunately he hates the word philosopher. He knows it makes him sound like an arse and, I mean come on, who is going to go to a show called “Stand-Up Philosophy?”

Robert is annoyingly happily married with zero kids or pets. He is hoping that he can figure out a way that people will give him money for his “not-quite-comedy, stand-up-philosophy” before the bank repossess his house.”


– Emma Doran (@EmmaLouDoran) : 

Just over a year and a half on the comedy circuit:

Winner of Ha’penny Comedy Competition 2014.

Runner up Forbidden Fruit Comedy Search 2014

Runner Up Show me the Funny 2015

You can sometimes see Emma’s head popping up on Republic of Telly as well.

David Reilly (@DaveyReilly):

He has appeared on RTÉ, BBC, and NPR and has had work featured in The Irish Times, Entertainment Weekly, and on MTV.

“The future of Irish comedy.” – Rich Hall


– Gary Doyle (@thegarydoyle):

Unhinged Comedy’s Lineup:

– Greg Marks

Greg is one of Ireland’s hardest working and funniest comedians, with his wacky brand of humour. Greg has played every venue up and down the country and beyond. Including the Laughter Lounge (Dublin), The Empire (Belfast), The Comedy Store (London), The Stand Comedy Club in Edinburgh and Glasgow – He’s not to be missed.”


Robbie Bonham (@RBonhamCartoons):

Dublin comedian Robbie Bonham has been performing in Ireland, The UK and internationally for 12 years, bringing with him his somewhat skewed outlook on relationships, addiction issues, and the nature of existence (from a man baffled by all three). He makes his television debut this year in TV3’s documentary, The Stand Ups.

He is also a published writer, illustrator and cartoonist, which is nowhere near as successful as it sounds. He could really use your money. And maybe your couch? Just for a few days…

“Quirky, zany, and, most importantly, funny” – Capital magazine

“Pretty damn hilarious…A talented addition to any line-up” – ComedyEire

“Confident, intelligent, creative and darn funny” – The Laughter Lounge

“A great act who is the most consistent performer at work in Ireland” – Capital Comedy Club

“…has established himself as a hard hitter on the Irish comedy circuit” – Galway Independent


– Eve Darcy

Eve is a relatively new stand-up comedian on the Irish comedy scene, having spent some time ‘doing’ comedy in Vancouver. Nobody invited her to, she just happened to live there for a time and while there decided to ‘break in’ her new comedy self whilst marvelling at such an exotic and strange land. Little did naïve Eve know that breaking in would also entail breaking down. Eve’s fear of commitment and aversion to labels has led to her current comedy ‘style’ being largely undefined, described best (in cheerleadingly encouraging and hopeful sentiments) as, ‘a work in progress’ and ‘evolving’. And as a wise woman once said many times, “shur, isn’t that all any of us can hope to strive for.” That wise woman only ever managed to make average tea. Eve likes tea.”


Peter Flanagan (@peterflanagan):

Peter Flanagan is an up and coming comic who has performed at top comedy clubs across Ireland, the UK and Australia. He’s been a finalist in competitions like: the Perth International Comedy Festival’s “Next Gen” and “Raw Comedy”.”


– Robert James Wade:

Robert James Wade has been on the Dublin comedy circuit for over three years now. Though still relatively unknown to the rest of the world, he consistently entertains audiences with his blunt, sleazy and at times sadistic sense of humour.”


– Danny O’Hanlon (@DannyOHQ):

“Danny O’Hanlon has been peddling his easy-going style of stand-up for five years now. He has supported the likes of John Colleary and Patrick McDonnell, performed in the Laughter Lounge and gotten to the final of the’ Show me the Funny’ comedy competition in Galway twice. That’s two times more than none. He is very involved in podcasting and community radio, but still finds the time to write jokes and say them out loud – sometimes to other people. He thinks you’ll like his stuff.”

The Mash Up

Connor McDonough-Flynn Taking The Stage for a 20-minute set @ The Mash Up, a monthly event in The Grand Social, second Tuesday of every month. uniquehornpromotions@gmail.com.

‘The MASH UP’ is a monthly night held in The Grand Social on the second Tuesday of every month. Each night consists of a variation of different types of genres and performers.

Spoken word, rappers, poets, comedians, this event has it all, with an eclectic mix of artistry always supplied, a must see night out in the big smoke…


First International Appearance This Thursday

My first International Comedy Club appearance is around the corner, and the painstaking task of shortening one’s set to fit into the confines of 7-minutes is proving to be a harder than anticipated. Shortening my set is something I never enjoy, for having the freedom to go with the flow of the joke and the audience’s response is a luxury that I relish.

However, cuts, snips and alterations will be made; this process could easily become a make over show: “Joke Make Overs” on RTE…? Perhaps too much of a stretch… Too edgy for RTE… I am sure nobody wants to hear about my deliberation on whether or not to include my ‘Shake That Ass’ bit; a seemingly minimal decision, but the joke really does tie the set together… Call in on the night to see my verdict on the ‘Shake That Ass’ bit, live!

I am playing the International Comedy Club this Thursday, the 20th of September, which means I will be away from “Get Up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s” for the evening, but do not fret, the night will be conducted by a more than capable Danny O’ Hanlon.

So if you are in Dublin call into the International Comedy Club, in the International Bar on 23 Wicklow St, Dublin 2, Dublin, Ireland. Doors are at 8:30pm, and tickets are €10/€8.

And if you’re in Galway call into “Get Up, Stand Up @ Garvey’s” in Garvey’s Hotel & Bar in Eyre Square, Galway. Doors are at 9:30pm, and entry is FREE!
