A Christmas cracker

December 10, 2012 in Quizzes

My employer, Claremorris Community Radio, is hosting a comedy festival in its home town next weekend. An interesting event for readers of this site will take place on Friday evening. It’s Standup and Answers, a night described as a “mixture of comedy and trivia”.

Comedian Jarlath Regan is your host and he is joined by some very special helpers including Karl Spain, The Viper (Hardy Bucks) and Foil, Arms and Hog (The Savage Eye). The night will feature an actual table quiz (yes, it’s true!), albeit one in which the rounds have a humorous bent. I also believe the helpers will perform a bit of stand-up in between rounds and during the interval etc so it should be both a challenging and a very entertaining night.

The quiz takes place in the funky upstairs venue at Maxwell’s Bar, The Square, in Claremorris. It’s due to start at 9pm and tickets cost €12.50 per person. Tickets are available at Maxwells, on or on

I’ll be there and I hope to see some of you there too.
