Since the beginning of the year Konrad Comedy Club has been hosting monthly events featuring professional stand-up comedians in the cellar of the café-bar venue. The comedians, based in the UK, are flown over courtesy of Luxair and perform for two consecutive evenings to full houses in the intimate basement venue.
Some have been better received than others, with this year’s crowd favourites being Andrew O’Neil, Canadian Tony Law and Jim Smallman according to an informal survey conducted by Delano. The latest performer was 42-year old Marcus Birdman who managed to antagonise some members of the audience with some ill-chosen words. Nevertheless, the Comedy Club has been a huge success and the organisers are keen to extend and expand the programme in 2013.
