Annual international comedy festival in Galway City featuring the very best names in comedy from around the world, plus top home-grown headliners. One full week of non-stop comedy shows each October.

The Galway Comedy Festival is an annual international event presenting stellar comedy headliners in multiple venues in Galway city. The programme is carefully chosen to bring both top award-winning comedy stars from around the world and up-and-coming talent to Galway over the October bank holiday weekend.

Previous festival headliners include Dylan Moran, Tim Minchin, Sean Hughes, Sean Lock, Lee Mack, Russell Howard, Kevin Bridges, Bobcat Goldthwait, Des Bishop, Reginald D. Hunter, Rich Hall and many more.
Galway Comedy Festival strives to set exceptionally high standards as a curated, rather than a submissions festival. Each act is carefully chosen and many shows are Irish or European Premieres. The festival continues to build each year and features headline names plus standout talent from other notable international festivals.
