Galway Comedy Festival 2021

Town Hall Theatre

They say comedy is all about timing. If that’s true, Galway Comedy Festival has really nailed it this year. With all restrictions due to be lifted midway through their week-long festival of fun (on Friday 22nd October) it looks like #GCF21 could be the party of the century, kicking off the roaring twenties with a feast of laughter.

With 45 shows, over 7 days, and 80+ artists it looks like being a hell of a week. Nina Conti, Jason Byrne, Deirdre O'Kane, Ed Byrne, Reginald D Hunter, Shaparak Khorsandi, Ardal O'Hanlon, Steve Hughes, Andrew Maxwell, Kevin McAleer, Bobby Davro, Terry Alderton, Owen Colgan, Barry Murphy, Waterford Whispers News, Karl Spain, Glenn Wool, Enya Martin, DJ Ivan Brackenbury, Danny O’Brien and Lindsay Hamilton (IT GALZ) are just some of the over 80 comedians making their way west to the capital of comedy for seven days and fun filled nights of laughter.
