Vodafone Comedy Carnival Galway 2016

Fri, Aug 26, 2016

The Boy With Tape On His Face.

AL PORTER in a leotard in the wrestling match to end them all; a man with his mouth taped shut performing surreally hilarious mimes; former Olympian Eddie 'The Eagle' Edwards; and the very best comedians from Ireland, Britain, USA, Denmark...it can only be the Vodafone Comedy Carnival Galway.

The Vodafone Comedy Carnival Galway will have its official launch party in the Róisín Dubh on Friday August 26 at 8.30pm and ahead of that, the Galway Advertiser can reveal a wealth of acts coming to this year's festival which runs from Tuesday October 25 to Monday 31.

Among the highlights will be The Dan Band, the comedy music trio who had show stealing appearances in The Hangover, Starsky & Hutch, and Old School; The Boy With Tape On His Face from New Zealand; the mime artist who brought the house down when he appeared on America's Got Talent; and Joe Lycett, whose deadpan letters complaining about such issues as public toilets and public transport have stolen the limelight on appearances on 8 Out Of 10 Cats Does Countdown.
