Review: Cat Laughs Festival, Kilkenny, Part 2

One of the funny things about this year's festival was that one of the highlights was not a stand-up gig at all in the conventional sense. The Mitch Hedberg Tribute Show paid homage to the cult comedian who died, aged 37, in 2005. I don't think Hedberg ever played London or Edinburgh but I was lucky enough to see him in Kilkenny in 1999. In was in Kytelers Bar I think, just after Phill Jupitus had done a routine about spiders.
