About the event



Experience the ultimate dose of queer joy at Token Straight, now coming to Pride of the Déise!


This special edition of Dublin’s renowned queer comedy night promises an unforgettable evening filled with laughter and celebration. Join us as we showcase the best LGBTQI+ Irish comedy talent, featuring Token Straight regulars, non-binary wonders, and Dublin comedy scene stalwarts.


Don’t miss out on this essential dose of queer joy – grab your tickets now and join us for a night of laughter and community spirit!


Your MC for the night will be the amazing Allie O’Rourke (a transgender screenwriter, stand-up comedian, filmmaker, producer, actress and theatre maker from Athlone) and joined by Felix O’Connor one of Dublin’s funniest, hottest and cleverest trans masculine comics on the comedy scene (because there are only a few of them) and Becky Cheatle is a rising star of the Irish comedy scene who has performed at The Dublin Fringe Festival and The Paddy Power Comedy Festival and is bringing her first standup show “Starfighter” to this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.


More acts to be announced – but that should be enough to get you excited enough to get your tickets early!



Pride of the Déise is proudly sponsored by Waterford City and County Council’s Festival Grant Fund and we are delighted to be partnering with the Theatre Royal for this event.
