30 Years of Laughs in the littlest room at The Kings Head

Gerry Mallon Presents Comedy in the King’s Head during the Galway International Arts Festival Photo Andrew Downes Xposure.

The most intimate Festival comedy at its best will happen at The Kings Head in Galway City this July!

The Kings Head has been a venue for lunchtime Comedy during GIAF for over 30 years.

This July you can catch some of Ireland’s best Comedians up close and personal in the intimate surrounds of The Ruby Room on the top floor of the 800-year-old pub.

For many it’s a Festival within a Festival, with a different line up each day, it’s a rare chance to catch these stadium style comics in such an intimate setting. All this under the tutelage of host and MC Gerry Mallon.

No pre planning or booking, The Laughter Loft at the Ruby Room for Galway International Arts Festival is what Galway festivals are all about. Spontaneity and fun.

Enjoy the comedy styling of top acts including Ross Browne, Anna Clifford, Neil Delamere, Emma Doran, Chris Kent, Aideen McQueen, Colm O’Regan and Karl Spain plus many more performing in the smallest room they will play this year, or any year. Shows take place daily from Monday 17th to Sunday 30th July.

Doors open at 12:30pm with all shows starting at 1pm.

There is no pre booking, first come first served with Tickets available on the door only.
