The cast of zany characters may be increased or decreased, depending on the size of the audience but typically includes a cast of five, a three-piece Irish band and you. Yes, YOU! Audience members are encouraged to get up and participate in the show. You may recite a poem, dance a jig, sing a song, make an Irish toast or give a eulogy (meaning, tell any old joke you know and insert Finnegan’s name).
Finnegan’s Wake is an interactive dinner and comedy show that can be performed any time of year, but it’s particularly popular every March. It is filled with tender ballads, rowdy reels, raucous comedy, outrageous characters, and plenty of audience participation as guests are invited to get up and say a few words about the departed. This very successful show has been performed for audiences in Greater Boston and New Jersey for over 17 years. At the Showboat Casino in Atlantic City, over 25,000 mourners came to pay their respects to our dearly departed and we performed 50+ shows over a two-year period, each enjoyed by over 500 people each performance.
It’s an interactive show that takes place during dinner, at the location of your choice where the audience is part of the act. And be prepared to hear some great music as well! This uproarious interactive dinner and comedy show is just the thing to lift your spirits – and rest assured there will be plenty of spirits to go around.
Join the family you are in for a treat – it’s an opportunity to entertain and to be entertained! While seasoned actor/comedians host this evening of Celtic wit and merriment, you’ll also have a chance to help console the poor widow. Feel free to share a joke, a ballad or a tale. After all, this gathering is a celebration of life, not death.
You’ll laugh till you cry at Finnegan’s Wake, the most original and engaging of productions. It’s simply an unforgettable interactive dinner and comedy show!

"Finnegan’s Wake is a dinner theater experience that puts the audience in the middle of a raucous Irish wake and gets the crowd into the act."
Just wanted to let you know that activity was a huge hit! Deric and the team did an amazing job…Very well done.
Amazing! The event was a HUGE success! Everything was perfect – the participants thoroughly enjoyed themselves. I can’t say enough about how well it went. The word is already flying around the office about the success of the program and we already have another group thinking about using this program for an event of their own!
The event was perfect !!!!! Your staff were amazing and engaging. We absolutely loved the activities building up to the Teddy Bear Build. Beyond our expectations.
Our Charity Bike Build donation event was a huge success. Matt and his team handled everything beautifully, and our group had a ton of fun. I heard nothing but positive comments afterwards. We will definitely recommend you to our colleagues.
WOW! What an incredible time we had with Team Bonding last week at our All Hands event! Your team was phenomenal, and with the leadership and charisma of Scott, pulled off keeping the attentions of a very lively crowd!
