The Irish Times Theatre Highlights of the Week…

We’re one of the Peter Crawley’s Theatre Highlights of the week in The Irish Times today.

“a various-times-in-a-lifetime opportunity to relive their rather sublime material, from the accelerating misadventure of Switzerland to their Sondheim-baiting Famine! The Musical. Let’s go.”

Tickets still available for Monday night at

Famine! The Musical…

We got a mention in The Sunday Times where they asked if the Irish Famine can ever be funny. So it seems like a pretty good time to give you all a sneak peak from our first ever live DVD “You’re Welcome For the Music“…

Ladies and Gentlemen, we give you “Famine! The Musical“, so you can decide for yourselves.

The full two hour show will be available later this week, just in time to fill some DVD shaped holes in your loved one’s Christmas stockings – watch this space for details in the next couple of days…

And don’t forget – tickets still available for our reunion show “Do Stop Believing”, 18-22 December in Project Arts Centre!


Extra Project Art Centre Dates…

We’ve added one final date to our Project Arts Centre 10 Year Reunion shows to make a full week of it.






Book tickets here.

Live DVD on the way…

Some more exciting news! We’re finally releasing a live DVD of our first-ever last-ever show recorded in Vicar Street. It’ll be out just before Christmas and on sale at our Christmas shows and on this site.

In support of a Yes in Australia’s Marriage Equality plebiscite, here’s the first preview of Leeroy the Homophobic Penguin… Australia, please don’t be like Leeroy. #VoteYes #Loveislove

We’re making another movie!

A few weeks ago, we posted that we had some big news in the pipeline (which in hindsight we probably could have phrased better because everyone thought we were announcing gigs, so we ended up having to announce a load of gigs).

In any case, we can finally post the original news… We have been writing a screen version of our Clown play for a while, and we’re really excited to say that the Irish Film Board have decided to support its production. So, with a bit of luck we should be shooting our second feature film Send in the Clowns early next year.

And this time we’re going to be more careful not to fill it with unclearable Whitesnake tunes, so that people actually get to see it. Anyway, Lambrini all around!

Not so secret secret gig…

We’re back in the rehearsal room for the first time in nearly four years for a secret guest performance coming up this week… Well it was a secret, but the Cat Laughs already let the Dead Cat out of the bag and announced it.

Let’s just say if you happen to be at Vicar Street on Friday 7th July at about 10.15 for #RIOTDublin, we might see you there… Damo probably won’t have quite so many bongos.
