VIDEO: Stephen Fry and Jimmy Carr join Irish comedians in backing Marriage Equality

VIDEO: Stephen Fry and Jimmy Carr join Irish comedians in backing Marriage Equality

So no pressure.

For a bit of comic relief, the Stand Ups for Yes video asks comedians their thoughts on marriage equality.

Featuring Irish comedians David O'Doherty, Aisling Bea and Jason Byrne and a few other non-Irish comedians that you might recognise - including Jack Dee, Sean Lock, Jimmy Carr and Trevor Noah - the best part of the video is Stephen Fry saying his piece in Irish.

Not bad at all, Mr. Fry.

He did have that practice run when he appeared on Ros Na Rún, after all.
