The Sky Cat Laughs Comedy Festival
30 May 2013 - 03 June 2013
The Sky Cat Laughs Comedy Festival is held over the first weekend in June each year in Kilkenny, Ireland. It was founded in 1994 in response to the burgeoning wealth of Irish comic talent with no clear national outlet for expression. It is known as a more intimate and laid back festival as there is no competition between the comedians to win awards or sell tickets to shows. The festival has grown from a small event comprising a handful of performances to an internationally acclaimed festival which showcases the very best in Irish and international comedy acts, attracting visitors to Kilkenny City and its surrounding regions through the unusual combination of professionally managed world-class entertainment in the atmospheric setting of the charming medieval city. The world-class programme blends the top Irish and international talent in shows featuring globally renowned comic stars as well as newcomers and break-through acts. The festival features mainly stand-up comedy performances but has also played host to other forms of comedy including readings by comedy authors, exhibitions of cartoonists. There is also a traditional soccer match held on the Sunday afternoon between the Irish comedians and those from abroad.
