More than 100 comedians, including Irish comedy greats, international stars, and emerging talent, have their flights booked, hotel accommodation sorted, and venues prepped, in preparation for coming to Galway for what is Ireland’s biggest comedy festival.

The festival, which takes place from Tuesday October 25 to Monday October 31, will also see some 15,000 comedy fans arrive in the city to laugh and enjoy the more than 60 shows taking place across 17 venues.

Thousands of tickets have been sold, with a dozen shows already sold out. However, plenty of tickets are still available for what promises to be a memorable week of laughter and hilarity, at what is arguably one of the premiere events in Galway’s cultural calendar.
