Class Clowns is a six-part series that sends some of our favourite stand-up comics back to school.
In this format, some of Ireland’s most recognisable faces from the world of comedy return to their old schools for perhaps their hardest gig yet – A very special one-off show in front of their former classmates and teachers (along with some current staff and pupils).
Taking the nostalgia of school-days past and putting it in the hands of some of seasoned comics, audiences are guaranteed plenty of laughs. We are also given an intimate look at some of their favourite stand-ups during “the best years of their life”, with many surprises along the way.
Expect stories of misbehaviour, innocence and embarrassment as the stand-up performance is inter-cut with interviews from old school pals and teachers alike, who reveal what the comics were like before they were famous.
The series roll-call features some of Ireland’s biggest names, including Jon Kenny, Niall Tobin, Karl Spain, Frank Carson, Deirdre O’Kane and Jason Byrne.
A co-production with Kite Entertainment.
