18 Camden Street Lower, Dublin 2.

Starting at sevenish in the evening it will be a chance to raise a glass to the latest co-operative Comic Anthology by some of Ireland’s most lovable comic creators.

And who knows, romance may even lurk right around the corner once the alcohol has completely shed you of any inhibitions.

We look forward to seeing you there!
