THE Record Room on Catherine Street features in the new Channel 4 Digi First Series ‘Stand Up Road Trip’ following comedians as they travel on the Wild Atlantic Way to find inspiration for new comedy.
In a joint partnership between Tourism Ireland and Channel 4, the series follows comedians Seán Burke and Suzi Ruffel travelling through Ireland from its Ancient East, across to the Wild Atlantic Way writing new jokes for a last minute stand up comedy show which took place in The Record Room.
Their challenge is to drive from one coast to the other, meet lots of locals and experience Irish culture, all in an attempt to gather enough comedy material.
They have prepared no jokes for the show and need to soak up as many adventure-filled stories and anecdotes as possible during their Irish road trip.
The comedy gig was facilitated by Mic Drop Comedy who regularly sell out their comedy night at The Record Room every month.
The digital-first mini-series includes three episodes, which will be available to view on Channel 4’s YouTube channel.
The episodes will also be promoted on the Channel 4 streaming platform, as well as on Channel 4’s Facebook, Instagram and TikTok. The promotion is expected to have 6.4 million views.
The first episode is out now on Channel 4s youtube channel.
