GLEEBAG AT VICAR STREET

Joanne is performing her debut solo headline show Gleebag at Dublin’s comedy mecca, Vicar Street, on Friday 26th April 2019.

Ireland’s comedy sweetheart (self-titled) will perform her first ever Vicar Street headline gig. She has supported other comedians in Vicar Street before because she’s generous with her time and they needed her, but this will be the first time she can clean out the fridge in the green room without the staff asking her questions about where she’s taking it all, and that’s exciting.

Joanne is feeling powerful and she hopes Vogue Williams and Amy Huberman are sh*tting themselves because she’s coming for their emerald crowns, and if she can’t take them fairly, she will joust them right off their immaculately groomed heads.

Tickets priced €22 and are available here or through Ticketmaster and the usual outlets nationwide.

GLEEBAG WORLDWIDE!

Glee Bag is going on a world tour! (To three more counties around Ireland.)

Joanne will perform her new stand up show in Dolan’s in Limerick, The Glór Theatre, Ennis and The Spirit Store, Dundalk In January 2018. Tickets available here on the website or from the venues.

Joanne is off to the Adelaide Fringe in February 2019! With two Edinburgh Fringes under her belt, she felt it was time to spread her Fringe and head Austral.
