Wildcats Programme

Wild Cats is the Cat Laughs platform for up-and-coming comedic talent. In 2017 the Wild Cats programme is focusing on comedians who are preparing their show for the Edinburgh Fringe – the world’s biggest comedy festival and where artists go to be discovered.

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

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