The White Horse Comedy Club - A monthly comedy club hosted by internationally renowned comedian and Cork native Chris Kent in the venue Upstairs at The White Horse, featuring regular special guests.


Founder and resident MC of Dublin's iconic 'The Comedy Crunch,' Colm McGlinchey is a familiar face on the Irish comedy circuit.

McGlinchey has performed across the UK, Ireland and Europe, including at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival & Paddy Power Comedy Festival.

"McGlinchey gets the job done, and has the crowd in the palm of his hand." - Steve Bennett, Chortle


After nominations for the BBC New Comedy Award, and Irish Comedian of the Year, John was a finalist in the Hackney Empire New Act of The Year, and Leicester Sq Theatre New Comedian of the Year awards. In 2022 he was runner up in the prestigious Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year, before winning the Panel Prize at the 2022 Edinburgh Fringe as part of “Best in Class” the working-class stand-up showcase.

This success has gained John a following for his timely writing and bold performances and seen him recognised as one of Ireland’s top new comedians, and in demand as an important working-class voice.

He has supported legendary Irish comedian Patrick Kielty on his recent 5 month long “Borderlines” tour and works at all the major UK and Irish Comedy Clubs.

Before his life in stand-up comedy, John was a Martial Artist and fought for the Irish team at the World Karate Championships, as well as training for years in mixed Martial Arts – think Joe Rogan if he believed in vaccines.

“John is a very sharp comedian…with a subtlety to his stuff I didn’t have (in younger days)” – Patrick Kielty. Irish independent 23.04.22

“…it was like watching a young Irish Billy Connolly” – John Meagher (no relation!) “The Irish Times”

“Great timing, great presence and punchlines. A much needed fresh comic voice from Northern Ireland at a time when we most need to hear it.” - Jarlath Regan (An Irishman Abroad Podcast)

“Hilarious. Sharp. Poetic” – Leicester Square Theatre, London

“…grabbed the gig by the scruff of its neck with a loud, fast and punchy delivery.” – Steve Bennett @ Chortle

"A Compact, confident, powerful storyteller with a keen comic eye" - Bruce Dessau
