Irish eyes are definitely smiling this March and you will be too with the fabulous John Colleary, comic from the Emerald Isle!

If you missed St Patrick’s Day, there’s still time to catch Irish comic John Colleary, star and writer of the three-times IFTA-nominated The Savage Eye. He’ll be joined on stage by Andy Valvur from the USA and UK rock-comedy duo Ray Guns, in the Luxembourg English Comedy Showcase Thursday Special on 23 March, at Marionette, Rue de Strasbourg.

Returning to Luxembourg is US comic Andy Valvur, who’ll host a night that also features UK duo Ray Guns – think Spinal Tap meets Morecambe & Wise. Luke Reel and Ray Gunn will reveal just what it takes to be a rock star, combining character comedy with high-energy musical mash-ups.

You’ll also get the chance to sample Luxembourg comedy with some local up-and-coming acts.

The show starts at 20.00 and tickets can be bought on the door for 25€, or in advance for 20€ by emailing A two-person ticket at 37€ is only available in advance here
