Special Event: David Nihill: Shelf Help Tour

After selling out last time David Nihill is back with his new show, Shelf Help. Leaving Dublin, Ireland where he was born and raised until the age of 22, David got drunk on travel and never quite hit sobriety of it. He has lived and worked in twelve countries and visited over seventy. His shows draw on his wide travels, cultural observations, attempts at language study, (occasional) international drinking session(s) and being a mildly confused immigrant.

David is the winner of the prestigious annual San Francisco Comedy Competition, (previous finalists include Robin Williams, Ellen DeGeneres and Dana Carvey) and runner-up in the Moth’s largest US Grandslam storytelling competition. Also a bestselling writer, David recorded his debut special for Dry Bar Comedy in 2019 and has been featured on TED.com, Sirius XM, The Irish Independent, Inc, NPR, and the Huffington Post among others. A festival favourite, David's videos have also gone viral many times over with over 400 million views and a social following of over 1.5 million people.


All shows are 21+.


Instead of a drink minimum, we have a two-item per person minimum in the Showroom, which can be fulfilled with any food or drink items from the menu.

Please Note: Food and drinks purchased in the bar and lounge do not count towards the two-item minimum. Additionally, for parties of 6 or more in the showroom, an automatic 20% gratuity will be added to the bill.


  • General Admission seating is assigned on a first-come, first-sat basis as you enter the showroom. The earlier you arrive, the better your seats will be.

  • Reserved seats are assigned for you by management on the night of the show. They are the best seats available for your party size at the time they are assigned.

Please Note: We do not take seating requests and cannot guarantee seats in a specific location.


  • While we cannot guarantee seats together, General admission groups should arrive at least 1 hour before showtime and enter the showroom as a group for the best chance of being seated together.

  • Reserved groups who purchase tickets in a single order will be automatically assigned seating together. Reserved ticket holders who purchase separately are not guaranteed seating together. Please see your email confirmation for details if your group purchased separately.

Please Note: We will only seat complete General Admission groups. Your group must enter the showroom together to be seated together. In addition, we do not take seating requests and cannot guarantee you seats in a specific location.


All sales are final. We do not offer refunds or exchanges.


Yes. Call our box office for more information. We encourage all patrons who have a disability to reach out to us to make accommodations.
