Crowbar Comedy continues to keep the Townhouse laughing away!

Was another comedy packed week at The Townhouse Bar on Quay Lane in Galway! The comedy scene proves to be potent during the Galway Fringe Festival.

This week Crowbar Comedy had 3-shows: Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. And there’s 3-more on the same days this week!!!

Wednesday was packed out with ‘turistas’: Spanish, German, American, Hungarian, and plenty of Irish and local Galwegians, a plethora of madness from all over the world. The Special Guest Sean Sheridan had a great set about drugs and football. And the Crowbar Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn) all hit flying form once again; the audience was left with smiles all around.

Friday was another packed out night, 60+ eager comedy enthusiasts crammed into the wallet friendly €3 show for a class line up including the Special Guest Lorna Forde, and the Crowbar Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn). The Crowbar Crew lined em’ up and knocked em’ down with a wide range of material; Danny, Kenny, Johnny and Connor all have unique styles that keep the show interesting and unpredictable. Lorna Forde had an entertaining set about being a mom, and the humorous-mayhem that comes with daily life.

Sunday night clashed with the Macnas Parade, which is an amazing part of the Galway Arts Festival, so after toughing it out in the rain and getting people in, the show started off and was a great success! The audience was up for it and they got it… What ever ‘it’ is… ‘It’ Sunday night was great comedy. The Crowbar Crew (Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn) once again all hit the comedy nerve of the crowd and got the laughs flowing. Cian Mc, the Special Guest, had a first-class set, joking about whiskey consumption, unpopular teenage years and how his mobile is messing with his self-esteem. All the lads played a blinder on the night and the crowd left satisfied…

Crowbar Comedy is part of the Galway Fringe Festival and it’s on this week the 25th, 27th and 29th of July, tickets are a wallet-friendly €3, it’s a show not to be missed!!! Danny O’Hanlon, Kenny Gaughan, Johnny Graham, Connor McDonough-Flynn, are all class, up and coming comedians. Each night has another up and coming comedian coming in as a special guest as well, making Crowbar Comedy a unique, laugh-out-loud show every night! A must see show during the Galway Fringe Festival.

The Galway Fringe Festival started off with a bang for Crowbar Comedy!

The first two nights were stock pilled with barrels of laughs as Kenny Gaughan, Connor McDonough-Flynn, Johnny Graham and Danny O’Hanlon; of the ‘Crowbar Comedy Crew’ and the ‘Garvey’s Comedy Open Mic Crew’ all hit flying form.
