Description


The Irish Village and Jumeirah Creekside bring you a night of hilarious comedy featuring an Englishman, Irishman and Scotsman on Thursday 28 September 2017.

If you missed the first one in July, then get your tickets today - this is a night not to be missed - featuring Englishman Rob Rouse, Scotsman Gary Little and compered by Father Ted favourite, the Irishman Joe Rooney, back with a brand new set.

Rob Rouse
As seen on Ben Elton’s hit BBC2 Shakespeare sitcom ‘Upstart Crow’ Standup Rob Rouse is coming to Dubai with his new stand up show 'Are You Sitting Comfortably?'


Rob Rouse’s ‘Bottom’ received a warm welcome with viewers and critics alike on Elton’s keenly anticipated ‘Upstart Crow’ which first aired in the spring of 2016 and was recently voted ‘Best new sitcom’ on the British Comedy Guide.

Rob is currently recording series two, playing William Shakespeare’s manservant, alongside David Mitchell, Harry Enfield, Mark Heap, Paula Wilcox, Gemma Whelan, Liza Tarbuck and Spencer Jones.

The BBC2 show has catapulted the stand up comic back into the limelight which hit UK TV screens this Spring 2017 at the same time as Rob headed out on his fourth UK Stand Up Tour.

One of comedy’s most lively, loveable and dynamic performers, Rob won Channel 4’s Prestigious So You Think You’re Funny competition at the Edinburgh Festival in way back in 1998.

He’s one of our best comic storytellers, has performed all over the world and works long form narratives into hard-hitting, uncompromising hilarious tales filled with warmth and a sense of compassion for our collective human frailties.

The Ex-Geography teacher has been described critically as 'A born clown', those who really know him may lovingly use the word ‘idiot’.

Either way, Rob takes this trademark comedic storytelling to a career high in this show, as he leads us on an irresistibly hilarious journey of enforced introspection and inspired rantings.

It’s a real roller-coaster of a show in which he is forced to relinquish any attempts to control his life and to face down literally one of the most awkward situations you’re ever likely to hear about.

You may also recognise him from 8 out of 10 cats, Spoons, The Friday Night Project, Celebrity Juice, Dave’s One night stand, John Bishop’s Only Joking, or Live at the Comedy store.

So, come and see him do what he does best; honest, frank, seriously funny stand-up.

Joe Rooney (Compere)
​Joe Rooney will forever be remembered for his role as Father Damo in the hit comedy series Father Ted.

Father Damo was to Father Dougal the kind of bad influence you try to keep your son or daughter away from but they will inevitably gravitate towards.


Father Damo wore an earring, smoked and stole and told his superiors they were, 'not the boss of me'. 

Little did I know that twenty years later Father Ted is still the biggest influence on my professional life. 

When people want to hire or book a comedian for a corporate event or party they book through the website and the first thing they ask is, 'can we book the comedian that played Father Damo?'

Acting as MC for the night, Joe is back with brand new material to ensure a great night of comedy.

Gary Little
Gary Little is one of the most consistent and funny acts in Scottish comedy. He is recognised as a master storyteller, and is a regular headliner at many of the top comedy clubs in the UK.


A regular at the Glasgow International Comedy Festival, his 2013 and 2014 shows were the fastest selling shows in the programme, requiring an unprecedented four additional nights added to the run, due to overwhelming demand.

2014 to 2016 also saw Gary playing to sold out rooms with his solo shows at the Edinburgh Festival.

As well as his solo show, Gary was also part of the play Jail Mates, with the four part comedy series being commissioned and broadcast by BBC Radio Scotland.

Despite his imposing physical presence – a 6’ 2” skinhead – Gary has an incredibly personable, relatable style.

Combine that with his unflinching honesty and openness – and just a hint of vulnerability – and audiences everywhere fall in love with his easy charm.  

He has that rare gift which to turn mundane, every-day experiences into pure comedy gold, which will have you simply crying with laughter.

Staged at the ballroom in Jumeirah Creekside Hotel, this is a night of hilarious comedy that you will not want to miss.

Timings:
Thursday 28 September 2017 from 9pm until 11pm.
- Doors open at 7pm.
