The Cat Laughs Festival, Kilkenny,
Miss Naoise Nunn

Ireland's first - and still favourite - comedy festival returns with the best Irish, British and international stand-up comedians, set against the backdrop of Ireland's medieval capital.

Established in 1995, the Cat Laughs Comedy Festival, referred to in the international comedy world simply and affectionately as Kilkenny, has in the past hosted such international comedy luminaries as Bill Murray, Zach Galafianakis, Louis CK, Peter Kay, Ross Noble, Bill Bailey, Jo Brand and Laura Kightlinger, and has also helped launch the international careers of Irish comedians such as Dylan Moran, Dara Ó Briain, Graham Norton and many others.

The Cat Laughs has no competition, no awards and no industry so it has become a much-loved busman's holiday for comedians the world over who have great affection for the friendly, relaxed vibe and the intimacy of the shows which are programmed to make for a diverse and intriguing experience for comedy fans.
