Ticket: €22 plus booking fee

Deirdre O'Kane is an actress and stand-up comic, with many appearances on television and onstage, since first reaching the finals of the BBC COMEDY AWARDS in 1996. She performs regularly at the Edinburgh Festival and has toured all over the world, with shows in Australia, China, Europe and the UK. As well as stand-up, she has had a distinguished acting career, with roles including Mary in "Juno And The Paycock" at the National, Miss Funny in "At The Black Pig's Dyke" with the Druid Theatre Co. and Daphne in "Present Laughter" at the Gate.

She has hosted the RTE series "The Lounge" which included guests such as Rich Hall and Dara O'Briain and starred in the Sky comedy "Moone Boy" and more recently she made a hilarious guest appearance in the British TV show "As Yet Untitled", where she told a hilarious story about her car being double clamped by over efficient clampers to whom she was rude over the phone. Fresh from being a contestant on the second series of "Dancing With The Stars" we are in for a high-powered, sassy evening with Deirdre O'Kane.

Deirdre has really hit her stride; footloose from a glittering turn on Dancing with the Stars and revelling in her return to stand-up, don't miss Deirdre at her hilarious best in a straight-talking look at twelve frantic months in the life of this tango-tripping, family-minding, telly-making, house-moving, comedy dynamo. "Unique star quality" - The Guardian

Snatch Comedy Improv is one of Ireland's longest running improv outfits, having formed in Cork in 2002. They have performed at home and abroad with shows in places as diverse as Holland and Finland. They provide training workshops and have even developed their own 'Long Form' show in which they ( unbelievably ) improvise an entire play.

For their 'Short Form' show at the Inkwell, the four members of the cast will make up short scenes based on audience suggestions, often with elaborate rules to make it even more difficult. The results are entirely spontaneous and are always hilarious, unexpected and sometimes just plain weird. If last years performance is anything to go by, expect a rumbustious evening, where you are very much part of the show.
