THERE WILL be plenty to laugh about at the Galway Fringe Festival with a comedy line-up that includes Galway favourites Bob Hennigan and Connor McDonough-Flynn, and the Best of Irish Comedy Awards.
The Finge's Galway Comedy Club will be located at the Stock Exchange on Shop Street, which will also host the Best of Irish Comedy Awards from July 15 to 18, with the winner being announced on Friday July 24.
