Wildcats Programme

Wild Cats is the Cat Laughs platform for up-and-coming comedic talent.

To get in shape for the Edinburgh Fringe we’ve offered these seven comedians a chance to test out their material on the best comedy audience in the world – Kilkenny.

Each of these seven gigs is a work-in-progress, come see how a good comedian becomes a really great one. Expect the unexpected.

Mentors

We’ve paired each of them with a Cat Laughs mentor who’ll open them up to ideas that will take them on a path to self discovery – or they’ll mock them from the back of the crowd.
