A most excellent night was had, the comedians we had were hilarious and it's always nice when you get Boards.ie specific material

I'm sickened that DeVore won the Postman Pat Transformer in the raffle, but BaconZombie winning JLS tickets has to have been one of the funniest things I've seen this year.

I'm sure well get a count on how much money was raised on the night before too long, so thank you every for showing their support.

Mad innit? Some of Ireland's very best comedians bringing out their A game and yet allof that hilarity paled in comparison to the laugh riot that was BaconZombie winning those tickets!

Kieran Lawless was the MC.

First half:
The Absurders (improv group) were on first.
Kevin Lockard (Barry White voice guy)
Niamh Marron (blonde lady)

Second half:
Damon Blake (Australian/Canadian hybrid accent)
Jim Elliot (Christian Bale lookalike)

Hey guys,

Brian from The Absurders here - we really enjoyed last night - it was the first time we have ever been asked to "switch back" in that last game we played!

I had to head off soon afterwards - don't suppose there was any chance I won in the raffle?
