Windows to the Soul - Clare Hartigan

Friday 21st October @ 8pm
Ger Carey presents The Fridge is Empty
Finally, after years of hiding in hedges observing people, comedian Ger Carey has the answers! Answers to questions like, why do we think we know the lyrics to songs when we’re drunk? What’s it like to be subjected to a drive-by slagging? Why do teenagers start dancing when they hear a car alarm? What’s it like at an ISIS comedy gig? Why does the US have a smoking ban on death row? When someone asks for directions but we don’t know, why do we try anyway? What would happen if people could name their racehorses anything they like? What is it about teenagers that make you want to throw darts at them? Why do your knees go first? And most importantly, why is the fridge always empty?!

Tickets €12

Sunday 23rd October @ 8pm
