im McGarry, Jake O’Kane and Colin Murphy will be joined by Scottish comic Wendy Wason for the gig at the Ulster Hall on October 13.
Stand Up for Integrated Education 2022 is the latest in a series of sold-out comedy nights. Murphy, who began his career at the famed Empire Laughs Back nights and is a regular on The Blame Game, will return on compere duties.
McGarry, best known for playing Da in Give My Head Peace and hosting The Blame Game, will bring his 30 years of comic experience to the evening along with his acerbic take on all things local.

McGarry said: “I’m delighted to be back in the Ulster Hall after a two-year absence raising much-needed funds for the Integrated Education Fund. We have a great line-up of top-class comedians so we can guarantee you a superb night of laughter.
“If you have already been to Stand Up for Integrated Education, you’ll want to come back. If you haven’t been before, don’t miss this unique night of comedy.”
