It's another year and another cracking lineup at this year's Vodafone Comedy Festival.

With 130 Irish and international acts lining up for the festival this year, you're going to have your hands full trying to get to all of them over the four-day period, but if you're looking for a few recommendations, here are five acts you definitely don't want to miss.


5. Michelle Wolf

Hot off her Netflix show and that scathing White House Correspondent's Dinner, Michelle Wolf's comedy is brash, incisive and political and exactly the kind of thing that US comedy desperately needs right now. Formerly a writer on 'Late Night With Seth Meyers', Wolf's comedy is never dull or what you'd expect.


4. Tommy Tiernan

If you haven't yet watched his show, get on it because it's (and this feels weird to say) one of the best chat shows that RTÉ has ever produced. A regular to the Vodafone Comedy Festival, Tiernan's standup show are always a treat and after such a storied career, he's lost none of his charm or talent.


3. Foil, Arms & Hog

The sketch-comedy trio have made a name for themselves and it's no surprise that they're among the top-liners of Irish talent at this year's Vodafone Comedy Festival. Taking in Irish culture, politics, and just the general weirdness of our times, Foil, Arms & Hog deliver three times the laughs.


2. Blindboy

As well as hosting one of the most popular podcasts in Ireland, Blindboy's live show offers up an intimate experience with some truly fascinating guests, often veering off into weird and wonderful places without any warning.


1. Jim Gaffigan

As well as having an extensive acting career, Jim Gaffigan's comedy career hasn't let up since the '90s and has seen perform at the Just For Laughs comedy festival, and even front his own sitcom. His most recent comedy album, 'Quality Time', follows on from his 2018 show, 'Noble Ape'.
