“We didn’t stop laughing.”

RIOT has been one of the big hits of this year’s Festival – a gloriously Irish variety show mix of trash-culture comedy and searing politics.

The savagely dissident spoken word pieces of Emmet Kirwan break your heart, but then host Panti Bliss and dance-comedy duos Lords of Strut and Up & Over It are on hand to make everything better by dancing inside giant balloons, or inviting the audience onstage to thwack a near-naked Jesus with pool noodles.

It’s a whole lot of fun packed into 90 minutes, as these delighted reviews from the audience attest. Watch them above – and if you were interviewed, see if you can spot yourself.
