Galway Comedy Festival to welcome 100 comedians : News 2022 – Chortle
Full programme released
The Galway Comedy Festival – which claims to be the biggest of its kind in the EU – has announced this year’s full programme.
Around 100 comedians will take part in 60 shows across 17 venues, from Tuesday 25 to Monday 31 October.
They include Dylan Moran – who kicks off the week – Tommy Tiernan, Daniel Sloss, Jimeoin, Deirdre O’Kane, Reginald D Hunter, Ardal O’Hanlon and Bobby Davro.
Festival director Kevin Healy said: ‘We are delighted to once again bring such a wonderful array of comedy talent to the best little city in the world.
‘Not only do we have shows from some of the greats of Irish and international comedy, we also have a carefully chosen selection of shows in smaller venues from some of the next generation of Irish greats. Enjoy your favourite stars during the Festival but also check out someone new.’
More unusual events include comedy club crawls, open-top bus tours, a comedy-themed quiz and Ireland’s smallest comedy club, a regular feature of the city’s Dew Drop Inn.
Tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday via www.galwaycomedyfestival.ie
