Once a month, from September until May, Guiriness Comedy brings the finest UK and Ireland comedy talent to Barcelona and Sitges. With Friday shows at Irish bar The Shamrock in Raval and Saturday shows at Wylie Brewery in Sitges, Guiriness Comedy has built a reputation over the years, becoming a must-see event for stand-up fans in Catalonia.
Guiriness Comedy is back for Autumn 2018! English language comedy returns with four weekends lined up over the coming months.
Danny O’Brien, award-winning Irish comedian and resident host/owner of one of Dublin’s most successful comedy clubs kicks things off in September. The Sunday Independent calls Danny “Uproariously funny with a huge stage presence and wicked timing” and the riotous raconteur comes to Barcelona and Sitges off the back of shows at the Edinburgh and Melbourne comedy festivals, as well as whipping up a storm as the support act for American comedy legend Bill Burr in Dublin.
Next, London-based comic Radu Isac brings his endearing style of offbeat observational comedy -as an immigrant- to Barcelona and Sitges in October. After nine years as a professional comedian in his native Romania, Radu moved to London and in 2017 made it to the final of the English Comedian of the Year competition, before closing out the year and bringing down the house at the BBC New Year Celebration. Chortle describes his comedy as “simultaneously sweet and dark.” What’s more, Romanian speakers will love his bonus show to be performed in his native tongue at the special Sunday evening comedy edition in Shamrock Bar!
In November, audiences are treated to the cultivated absurdity of English comedian Alasdair Beckett-King. The Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year 2017 brings his show Full Velvet Jacket to Barcelona and Sitges, where there’ll be killer one-liners and witty observations aplenty. The Scotsman said “a singular and truly distinct act, Alasdair Beckett-King creates his own multi-faceted world.”
Internationally acclaimed English comedian Sean P McLoughlin comes to Barcelona and Sitges in January. Time Out calls him “the best comedian you haven’t heard of yet” and recent support slots for Doug Stanhope, Katherine Ryan, Bill Burr at the Royal Albert Hall and Ricky Gervais on his international ‘Humanity’ tour show that Sean is undoubtedly one of the fastest rising stars of the UK comedy scene. Catch him before he becomes a household name.
