Galway Comedy Festival 2021 – 5 Radiant Reasons to Go


Galway Comedy Festival 2021

On Wednesday night, September 15th, Patrick and I attended the Dublin launch of the Galway Comedy Festival 2021 at the Laughter Lounge. Bravely seated in the front row, actually inside a venue, at a live comedy show was in itself something to be celebrated. Add to this the stars of the show – Karl Spain, Paul March, Enya Martin and Andrew Maxwell – keeping our faces smiling throughout the night, made for a very enjoyable experience. And a memorable one, because after a year and a half, we definitely deserved a good laugh.
