Vodafone Comedy Carnival Galway 2017

Full line-up finally revealed!

Dara Ó Briain, Kevin Bridges, Tommy Tiernan, Jon Richardson, Reginald D Hunter, Rich Hall, Foil Arms & Hog, David O’Doherty, Rubberbandits, Jimeoin, Katy Brand and Ardal O’Hanlon are just some of the standup superstars set to raucously rock Galway at this year’s Vodafone Comedy Carnival. 

The full 2017 Vodafone Comedy Carnival Galway line-up has just been announced, and with 75 shows and over 100 acts, the week-long orgy of laughter, lampooning and lunacy is set to wet the collective pants of Galway audiences over the October bank holiday weekend.

The 2017 Vodafone Comedy Carnival runs as part of Vodafone’s Centre Stage programme, and will see the return of the iconic Spiegeltent to Eyre Square for the third year, accompanied by the now legendary BlundaBus. Vodafone Comedy Carnival runs over seven days from Tuesday, October 24th to Monday, October 30th. Festival organisers have searched far and wide to fill the ‘Eyre’ with laughter and bring the funniest acts on the planet to what has always been acknowledged, but only recently proclaimed as Ireland’s cultural capital, Galway.

With comedy superstars Dara Ó Briain, Kevin Bridges and Tommy Tiernan as well as huge international acts Jon Richardson, Reginald D Hunter, Katy Brand and Rich Hall – this week-long funny fest will not disappoint. Homegrown heroes abound in the line-up with Al Porter, Dermot and Dave, and Foil Arms & Hog to the fore, as well as David O’ Doherty, The Rubberbandits, Ardal O’ Hanlon, Neil Delamere, David McSavage, Barry Murphy, Katherine Lynch and PJ Gallagher. Add the world class silliness from Jimeoin, Phil Nichol and Lords of Strut to the inspired stand up from Andrew Maxwell, Tom Stade, Francesca Martinez and Colin Murphy, and you have one hell of a festival.

Throw in Faulty Towers: The Dining Experience, Stephen Frost’s Improv AllStars, The Wild Atlantic Way Pub Crawl, The Irish Comedian of the Year Grand Final, and One Night Stand (scenes from Louis CK’s web sitcom Horace & Pete) and now you’ve got a festival worthy of a future European Capital of Culture.
Bring on 2020. It’s time to send in the clowns!
