The audience has no idea what thrilling and the hilarious twisted tale they’re in for, but are guaranteed to be left in awe of the quick-witted and creative minds of these improvised comedy masterminds. They take audience suggestions to fuel the LOLs, meaning no two nights are the same, so make sure you get to witness the fun during this special show at Kilkenny Cat Laughs.
