The Giggling Guiri is an English language comedy club which has been running comedy events in Madrid and Barcelona since 2005 and brings some of the best loved comedians from the UK, Ireland, US and Australia to Spain. They have a show coming up on Sunday 20th March with US comic Lee Camp.
The Giggling Guiri (www.comedyinspain.com) is massively excited to present another opportunity to experience real US comedy upfront and live in Spain. Flown directly to Europe by the Glasgow Comedy Festival we managed to catch him en route for a couple of shows from one of the exceptional young talents in comedy in the US. Lee is also a contributor to The Onion newspaper, the Huffington Post, and has performed stand-up at events featuring Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Al Gore.
“Since my dad died, I've been concerned about who's going to keep the torch alive, who's going to keep it lit. And I saw Lee, and I was completely blown away by the balls he has, and I thought 'Hey, that's like my dad.' Three things about Lee really remind me of my father. One of which is that he's a thinking person's comic.
