Cat Laughs Comedy Festival 2017


22nd Kilkenny Cat Laughs Comedy Festival 2017

Thursday 1st June - Monday 5th June 2017

The June Bank Holiday brings the hilarious Cat Laughs Comedy Festival, a world class comedy festival featuring the very best in Irish and international talent.

The Cat Laughs Comedy Festival held its inaugural edition in 1995 in response to the burgeoning wealth of Irish comic talent with no clear national outlet for expression.

The festival has grown from a small event comprising a handful of shows 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 by combining world class entertainment with the atmospheric setting of our charming and intimate 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 attracts in excess of 30,000 visitors to Kilkenny, resulting in more than €8 million being invested into the local economy.
