Another year and another barrel full of laughs. Mason’s Comedy Club the city’s only professional comedy night, returns for its 2014 run and kicks things off with the return of the man who helped get it all started - the fabulous Micky Bartlett.

The young Lurgan man cut his teeth and built up a cult following as Masons regular MC in its opening years. He’s since graduated to become one of the regular MCs at Belfast’s legendary Empire Comedy club alongside Colin Murphy and Jake O’Kane.

Micky’s back after capping a truly phenomenal year in comedy that has seen him become a regular on BBC NI panel show ‘Monumental’ -where he has co-starred with comedy greats Andrew Maxwell and Jimeoin. The new series of the hit comedy show starts this weekend.

He has also completed his first solo theatre tour of Northern Ireland, appeared on BBC’s The Blame Game and also featured in the “Funny on the Foyle” City of Culture comedy special.

Micky is currently prepping his second theatre tour, but he’s taken time out to give his second home and his liver a while good seeing too.

Support on the night also comes from some of the best acts on the Northern Irish comedy circuit: George Firehorse’s mix of magic and gags is a real must see, Paddy Mc Gaughey has delighted crowds in the past with headline turns at the Stroke City Comedy Club and regular appearances on The Movie Quiz podcasts and Fintan Harvey has been making a great splash MCing events all over the North West.

The night is £5 entry and comes complete with a free shot. The night is also followed by fantastic live music from Thumping Jellyfish downstairs in Masons Bar.
