This is one of the main events on the Irish Comedy festival round, attracting some major international and Irish comedians. There are heaps of pop up events around town throughout the week as well as ticketed events in lots of different venues. You can check out the different acts on the Vodafone Comedy Carnival page. It hasn't been updated yet for 2017 yet though. This is a non-competitive event. The acts from the day normally meet up for a comedy bonanza in the Radisson blu hotel each evening.
