Whose Line is it Anyway? star Colin Mochrie in Comedy Carnival ‘improv summit’

Thu, Sep 22, 2016

IN THE 1980s and 1990s, Whose Line Is It Anyway? was the cream of Channel 4’s comedy output. It was unmissable, and spawned a host of spin-offs including the hugely successful US series of the same name. If you have ever watched the show you will understand that when it goes right it is the funniest thing ever. When it goes wrong, it’s even better.

Album review: Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds

Thu, Sep 22, 2016

Exhibition of an artist's year on Salthill prom

Thu, Sep 08, 2016
