The Braid Comedy Club Presents Micky Bartlett with support from Darren Matthews and Paddy McGaughey


Following on from our hugely successful May show with Tim McGarry, we welcome Micky Bartlett to the Braid Comedy club on Saturday the 30th of June.

Micky is gathering both momentum and acclaim as one of the fastest rising stars on the live stand-up circuit as well as for his hilarious TV appearances including 2 series of BBC NI’s Monumental. Micky grew up in Lurgan, a town just outside of Belfast. Only ever wanting to be a comedian, he tried his first open spot whilst in his final university year, studying for a BA in Drama and Theatre Studies. One course examined comedians such as Billy Connolly, with the final assessment being a performance. This was all the push Micky needed to try stand-up as a career.

Whilst at university, Micky performed at an assortment of student comedy nights, usually to a handful of drunk fellow students. At the time there were no small comedy clubs in N. Ireland so the only way to really test material was to play the legendary Empire. He booked himself an open spot and on the 8th of April 2008 his debut stormed it—they loved him and he was hooked.

Micky was subsequently involved in the beginning of several clubs around the country, including Mason’s in Derry/Londonderry where he was resident MC for 2 years.

2017 saw Micky make his solo debut in London’s West End with a run at the prestigious Soho Theatre, be featured on the Irish episode of BBC Radio 4’s State of the Nations, create more online content for the BBC plus make a welcome return to Glastonbury. He premieres his latest show, Typical! at the Edinburgh Fringe and performs a tour across the east coast of Australia as well as throughout Ireland and Europe in the autumn.

We are happy to welcome Micky back to club, and having performed to Local audiences at one of the Braid Comedy Club’s intimate Front Page Bar gigs, we are looking forward to seeing him grace the theatre stage once again.


Darren Matthews makes a return to the Braid Comedy Club to provide support for this show. The Bessbrook comic is steadily rising through the ranks of the Northern Irish Comedy scene and is looking forward to performing to the Ballymena crowd once again.
