WATCH: Jimmy Carr, Aisling Bea and loads of other Irish comedians have a special message for you ahead of the referendum

"I never really believed that Irish women could be trusted with their bodies, because I remember how crazy we went for line dancing in the 90s."

In case you were unaware, there's a fairly massive referendum this Friday...

In the lead up to the big vote, a number of Irish celebrities have come out urging the people of Ireland to repeal the eighth. Last week saw superstars such as Saoirse Ronan and Cillian Murphy encourage the people of Ireland to vote yes, and since then, Chris O'Dowd has also spoken up.

With just a few days until voting stations open to the public, campaigners are now doing their utmost to sway those who could potentially still be on the fence.

The latest effort comes in the form of Irish comedians who live and work abroad, and so are unable to vote. Sharon Horgan, Aisling Bea, Grainne Maguire, Roisin Conaty, Katherine Ryan, Chris O'Dowd, Ed Byrne, Jarlaith Reagan, Graham Linehan and "half-Irishman" Jimmy Carr feature in this new video below.

Highlights of the video include Jimmy Carr stating that his mother was actually the last Irish woman that he was inside, and Aisling Bea informing us that "when you vote you get that same mad buzz you do out of a good confession, but without the added shame."
