This St. Patrick’s Day the cream of Irish stand-up comedy is gathering at the 3Arena for the very first Irish event in support of Comic Relief.

Instigated by comedian Deirdre O’Kane and TV producer Darren Smith, Paddy’s Night will feature a who’s who of the Irish comedy scene including Tommy Tiernan, Dara O’Briain, Ardal O’Hanlon, Jason Byrne, Deirdre O’Kane, Abandoman, Des Bishop, Bernard O’Shea, Ed Byrne, David O’Doherty, Panti Bliss, Alison Spittle, PJ Gallagher and Al Porter.  The event will raise much needed funds for a variety of Irish and International causes in association with Comic Relief.

No one, not a soul on the above list is receiving any payment for their acts. The 3Arena is providing the venue at no cost.

Paddy’s Night in Support of Comic Relief tickets go on sale from www.ticketmaster.ie from 9am on Friday 10th February, priced at €39.00 and €45.00 per ticket, plus standard booking fees.

Explaining the background to the gig Deirdre said: “Like everyone else, I was moved by the heart breaking images of people living incredibly tough lives around the world and at home, and so I decided I wanted to do something fun and useful that would raise a proper chunk of money. So I picked up my broken phone and asked my talented, funny friends to help. I was extremely happy when they all generously said ‘yes, sign me up’. Darren and I then approached 3Mobile/3Arena, 2FM and Comic Relief who were very happy to collaborate with us. So we have a killer line up, an incredible venue, a national holiday, a national radio station and a legendary charity partner. Now all we need is for the great Irish public to treat themselves to a brilliant night out!!”

The funds will be split between domestic and international projects that help people living incredibly tough lives in Ireland and around the world. Since 1985, Comic Relief has raised over £1 billion for charitable causes.
