Drogheda is to host what the organisers claim is the first ever comedy festival to be held in County Louth.
With all profits going to the Samaritans the festival, it’s called Laugh Out Louth 2017, will feature a stellar line-up of comedians who will literally be standing up for mental health.
#LOLCOmedyFest is about raising awareness of Mental Health Issues (especially male mental health) through comedy and discussion.
Running from October 13th-15th October it will be taking place in three venues - Droichead Arts Centre, McPhails Bar and the Little Duke Theatre.
