Irish comics to take stage in benefit for Irish Arts Center

February 16, 2011

By Staff Reporter

Gotham Comedy Club, in association with the Irish Arts Center, will launch a series of evenings featuring Irish-American comics on Thursday, July 15, at 8 p.m. at the club, at 34 West 22nd St., between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, NYC.

The line-up includes Brian Kiley, a writer from "Late Night with Conan O’Brien," Tom Cotter, who recently appeared in the Miramax film "Next Stop Wonderland," Jim Gaffigan from TK, Deirdre Sullivan, Fiona Walsh, Justin McKinney and Joe Mulligan.

"There are so many Irish-American comedians working in New York, but there’s no night of comedy devoted exclusively to celebrating their work," said Chris Mazilli, owner of Gotham Comedy Club. "It seemed natural to bring together Irish comics to support the Irish Arts Center."

The Irish Arts Center has been a home for Irish culture in New York for more than 25 years. It has showcased comics at its monthly Irish Cabaret.

The cover is $10. All proceeds will be donated to the Irish Arts Center. For reservations, call (212) 367-9000.
