McSavage Comedy Night

Comedian extraordinaire Dave McSavage provided a night of great entertainment and quick witted humour in the Twisted Pepper on Abbey Street last night ( Thursday 17 June 2010 ).  If you missed Dave McSavage and what another opportunity to see him, then head along to Wicklow Town’s brand new comedy club in the Grand Hotel on June 25 th .  Bringing with him comedians Sharon and Jonathan, both of whom are performing in the Street Performing World Championship this weekend in Merrion Street this weekend ( 19 and 20 June 2010 ), we were provided with a great night of international comedy.  Be sure to head down to the Street Performing World Championship to catch these acts and many, many more.  All events are free and you can vote for your favourite act!

We’re still in the process of counting the funds raised last night and will provide an update as soon as we can.  A big thank you to everyone who came along and also to the Twisted Pepper for providing a fantastic venue.

Don’t forget there are still loads of ways to support the Irish Cancer Society and the Livestrong foundation with our upcoming events, our next event is the Citigroup Table quiz (unfortunatly only open to citigroup employees) on Thursday 24 th June on in the Vault, with an incredible first place prize of an extra day off work!  For all those brain-boxes out there, don’t fret, we haven’t left ye out- we’ll be hosting a table quiz in Leixlip on Friday 25 th June 2010 where you can give your brain matter a good workout!
