Karl Spain and friends take part in the Comedy KARLnival Online

Comedy KARLnival Online with Karl Spain and friends, Friday, March 5, Live from Sound To Light Studio in Galway, Featuring Jason Byrne (the king of comedy), Lisa Casey (Winner: Irish Comedian of the Year 2018), Tom O’Mahony (Damo & Ivor / Bridget & Eamon – RTE) with your host Karl Spain. 

They have been working hard behind the scenes to fine-tune the online comedy experience for both the comedians and audiences. This Friday, March, 5 you will be getting one step closer to a real-life comedy club experience via a professional studio, with the comedians performing to a virtual front-row audience on huge LED screens. Better quality sound, lights and cameras, and real-time 2-way interaction. It’s not better than the real thing and it’s hopefully not the new normal but using the very best technology available to bring you a high-quality night of laughs. 






Jason Byrne

The biggest selling comedian at the Edinburgh Fringe, Jason Byrne’s inspired, original brand of high-energy intelligent lunacy ensures that there is no other comedian like him. His sell out shows have attracted accolades including the highly coveted Perrier Newcomer Award Nomination and the Perrier Award Nomination.

He has been featured across the water on Live at the Apollo, Dave’s One Night Stand, and John Bishop’s Only Joking. Closer to home, Jason starred in Anonymous on RTÉ2 and is a judge on Ireland’s Got Talent where he became the first judge to ever accidentally hit the Golden Buzzer during an audition, sending the act straight through to the semi-finals. 

With Jason, anything can and will happen. It’s that sense of stepping into the unknown, of watching a comedian The Times described as “The outright king of comedy” go off on wildly hilarious tangents while delivering truly joyous comedy that keeps delighted audiences coming back every year. He’s a barely-in-control master of audience mockery and mayhem. He fires on all cylinders from the moment he bounds onto the stage. 

Lisa Casey

Irish Comedian of the Year 2017/18, Lisa Casey is one of the most exciting and fastest rising new comedians on the scene.  She is a regular at Ireland’s major festivals including Electric Picnic and venues such as the Laughter Lounge, she has also performed at The Stand’sBest of the Irish’ Edinburgh and has toured Australia.  Lisa has performed with acts such as Tommy Tiernan and Rich Hall.  She is also a contributor at the popular ‘Facts’ and ‘Try’ YouTube channels boasting over a million subscribers. 

Tom O’Mahony (Damo & Ivor / Bridget & Eamon – RTE)

Tom O’Mahony has toured with MTV star Tom Green and Mock The Week regular Tom Stade. He has gone on to support the likes of Nina Conti (Cork Opera House), Michael Winslow (of Police Academy fame), Neil Delamare, and Tommy Tiernan as part of their nationwide tours. A regular on Irish TV, Tom starred alongside the legendary Rik Mayall in Season 1 of the award-winning TV series Damo & Ivor. He also featured in the hit RTE show Bridget & Eamon as your everyday oddball neighbour Paddy d’Pervert (it’s French!). Tom is also a regular face at the University Concert Hall Limerick annual panto!

The Small Print

Be a part of the action, join the video call and provide the laughs, LIVE. (Very limited number of tickets) 

With this ticket you are asked to have your mic and camera on, so you’re visible to the comedians & occasionally our livestream audience and your laughter adds to the atmosphere of our show. We do ask our VIPs to turn their mic down to 25%, and be aware of their surroundings at home, ie: mute themselves during conversations, watch out for the crying baby /  barking dogs / pizza delivery guy – as all the unintentional background noises take away from the quality of the show. Too much noise and you will be muted!   You also get access to an extra 30 minutes of banter pre-show from 8:30pm in the “Green Room” with Karl Spain.
