The Vodafone Comedy Tent is back at Body&Soul


Exciting news just in from Body&Soul…

Vodafone have announced a ‘craicing’ line-up of Irish and International comedians set to perform at the Vodafone Comedy Tent at Body&Soul Music & Arts Festival this June. This year’s roster is stronger than ever and includes a mix of stand-up, improv, sketch and musical comedy from a stellar mix of Irish and International acts.

Irish comedy legend Tommy Tiernan will make his Body&Soul debut at this year’s festival, while hip hop musical comedian Abandoman will turn up the heat in the tent over the weekend. Also joining this year’s impressive lineup is Jarlath Regan, who will record an episode of his popular podcast An Irishman Abroad, live from the tent.

The Vodafone Comedy Tent is a stand-out addition to the already sensational line-up that will keep the most seasoned festival goers in good spirits in the enchanting surroundings of Ballinlough Castle, Co. Westmeath from 22nd -24th June.

Exciting newcomers Dreamgun Film Reads will join This Is Your Trial at the festival – an interactive legal comedy will make its Irish debut and features Steve Bennett, Eleanor Tiernan and Andrew Stanley.

The line-up will showcase artists that approach comedy in a new and interesting way, including Bryony Kimmings who turns unspeakable subjects into hot topics and Sanderson Jones whose comedy is inspirational, interactive, and eye wateringly funny.

Child-friendly performers Keith Farnan with Kidocracy and Punchlion Kids Comedy Club will offer family fun at the festival, while Dublin Comedy Improv will also return to the Vodafone Comedy Tent. This unique and inspiring comedy show is sure to keep audiences on their toes!

Also, making an appearance over the weekend are Alison Spittle, Chris Kent, Fred Cooke Andrew Stanley, Aoife Dooley, Joanne McNally, Paul Currie and many more.
