Not only Irish eyes will be a-smiling this St. Patrick's Day weekend at the Firehouse Arts Center in downtown Pleasanton. On Saturday, March 14, at 7:00 p.m. the Real Irish Comedy Fest hits the Firehouse stage with a "blast of blarney" to celebrate St. Paddy and all things Irish. One night only, PG-13 suggested.

The Real Irish Comedy Fest showcases the best blend of Irish comedic talent, entertaining audiences with Ireland's unique wit and storytelling talent. The Line-Up: Adam Burke (County Armagh), Niamh Marron (County Sligo), and three Dubliners: Dave Nihill, Martin Anglolo, and Francis Cronin.

Audiences will recognize Adam Burke is a regular panelist on NPR's popular comedy quiz show 'Wait Wait Don't Tell Me.'

Simon Cowell calls Niamh Marron: "Risky, edgy, and a very naughty girl." She is the winner of 'Show Me the Funny,' and runner up in the Funny Women Awards London.

Dave Nihill is the first ever Irish winner of the prestigious San Francisco Comedy Competition, runner up in the Moth's (NPR) largest US Grand-slam storytelling competition, and the first Irish comedian to have a special on Dar Bar Comedy.

Martin Anglolo's comedy style is a mix of one-liners and silly observations. He writes and performs comedy for BBC radio, has his own podcast, and this year he opened for American comedian Marc Maron in Vicar Street.

Francis Cronin is a Dublin born-and-raised ex-Irish army and UN soldier, standup comedian, actor, writer, and producer. He first achieved national acclaim for his funny adventure sketch videos on his YouTube channel 'GlowPunk.' In 2012 Francis won the 'People's Choice Award' at the WAFF Awards in Ireland, and received an 'Honorary Headcase Award' in 2013. (Need we say more?)
