The Late Late Toy Show is going to be in London (and it sounds like better craic)

The toy Show

Great news for the Irish in London.

No more will you have to sit at home with a strong wifi connection and a hijacked Internet browser to be able to watch The Late Late Toy Show. The Irish Christmas staple is being brought to London thanks to The London Irish Comedy Festival.

For the second year in a row, the Irish in London can band together with some of the funniest Irish folk and revel in the joy that is the Toy Show.

Host Joanne McNally will be joined by Fred Cooke for an inevitable night of comic debauchery.

Speaking about the The Late Late Toy Show LIVE! host and comedian Joanne said “I was raised on the Late Late Toy Show, cut me open and I’d bleed tinsel and batteries and that small kid from the Worx who used to do the book reviews. It’s an absolute honour to host it overseas. Fred and I are two furry, non identical twins from Dublin who love toast, basically, we’re the new Zig and Zag.”

In keeping with the spirit of Christmas, organisers are asking audience members, if they can, to bring an unwrapped educational toy, game or book for a child between the ages of 3 – 11 years, for Santa’s sack. All toy donations will be gifted to Variety, the Children’s Charity. Variety at Work deals directly with children, offering outings and special treats to young people and children who are sick, disabled and disadvantaged.

Tickets can be got HERE.
