The Dublin venue that sparked "the Big Bang" of Irish comedy is set to celebrate its 25th anniversary with a show starring Tommy Tiernan, PJ Gallagher, and Jason Byrne.

The Comedy Cellar, naturally located upstairs in Dublin's International Bar, was founded in 1988 by upcoming Irish comics Kevin Gildea, Barry Murphy and Ardal O'Hanlon aka Mr Trellis, Dermot Carmody, Karl McDermott and Gerry Brett and has been open ever since hosting gigs, including some very early apperances by one Eddie Izzard.  

25 Years of The Comedy Cellars takes place in Dublin's Vicar Street on September 13th and tickets are priced €55 Euro for a night that will feature over 30 comedians in total.

David O'Doherty, Neil Delamere and Barry Murphy are also among the line-up and all proceeds will go to the Peter McVerry Trust which supports young homeless people.
