Festival News: Jest Fest Line-Up

Jest Fest is running in Wexford Town from the 27th of April to the 30th.

 

If you are interested in watching some live comedy this is what Jest Fest has in store for you.

Ease yourself into it with the Wexford Comedy Club on the Thursday night for only €8 at 9pm. Go for some dinner beforehand and it’s the perfect Thursday.

Friday offers a great range of talent and all very affordable ranging from €12 – €15. Kick off the weekend with Alison Spittle, Karl Spain and Fred Cooke. We just announced that Alison has bagged herself a TV show so go see her now before she gets super famous and impossible to see live.  If you aren’t interested in the typical stand up then Lords Of Strut is the show for you. It is a fantastical hour of slapstick mayhem in the guise of a T.V talk show.

If you want a bit of interaction then go to Dublin Comedy Improv where they will make stuff up based 0n your suggestions kind of like Whose Line Is It Anyway.

If you’re looking for something to do with the kids on Saturday then go to Stand-up Comedy for kids. Kev and Paul are two of Ireland’s top comedians who love to tell jelly jokes, sing silly songs, make nonsense noises and pull funny faces.

Fred Cooke has a unique brand of musical chaos, wild crowd interaction and insane storytelling. Facebook sensations Rory’s stories and Giz a laugh are coming to Wexford for the first time. Watch Rory bring his GAA parodies to life, and Giz a Laugh’s hugely popular characters Chanto and Shardon.

Sunday gives you the cream the crop. Again because someone is thinking of the children there is a Superhero circus in the Wexford Arts Centre at 12pm.

If you are looking to bring that special someone out on a date that Jest Fest has the perfect night in store. For €45 you will be wined and dined at the Vine restaurant. Throughout the night you will get the some of the best of Irish stand-up from Fred Cooke and Gearóid Farrelly.

Foil Arms and Hog. These lads we cannot recommend enough and the tickets are guaranteed to sell out quick so go check them out now.

If you’re not sure what show to go to, call down to Wexford for the weekend anyways and there will be plenty of street entertainment at the Street Theatre Arena. A spirit of devilish revelry will fill the Viking streets of Wexford as Irish and international street jesters, acrobats and contortionists wow us with their amazing performances.

There will also be a vintage funfair for the kids. Some of the attractions include oldest travelling Ferris wheel in Ireland built in 1922, chair-o-planes, classic carousel and spinning tea cups.
