JOHN BISHOP, Dermot & Dave, Ardal O’Hanlon, Enya Martin, Reginald D Hunter, and Rich Hall have been announced to play the Vodafone Comedy Carnival Galway, which runs from Tuesday October 22 to Monday 28.
Comedy superstar and Liverpudlian legend, John Bishop is returning to Galway to showcase some fresh material ahead of his new tour. Tickets for this show go on sale this morning [Thursday May 23] at 10am. The show is expected to sell out very quickly.
Ardal O’Hanlon workshopped his show, The Showing Off Must Go On, at the 2017 festival. The finished product is now ready and will be presented at this year's carnival.
Rich Hall also makes a welcome return. The inspiration for Moe in The Simpsons, the Perrier Award-winning Montana native is renowned for his expertly crafted tirades, quick fire banter, and delightful musical sequences.
Online comedy sensation Enya Martin [pictured above] of Giz A Laugh fame, returns to Galway with her new show Would Ya Be Able? Her Dublin 'session moths' and Irish mammies have enjoyed more than 60 million online views.
Also returning to Galway with a new show is Reginald D Hunter, with Facing the Beast and Niggas [his title, so do not write in to us to complain], so expect dark humour and provocative opinion. Today FM's Dermot & Dave recently announced the Dermot & Dave Live Tour which includes a Galway show during the festival.
