About the event

Theatre Royal presents




Áine Gallagher has been coined, “the queen of the offbeat”, as her unique style of comedy guarantees audiences a ‘divinely awkward’ experience. She masterfully uses deadpan humour which continuously keeps audiences guessing and her novel and wholly accessible use of the Irish language makes her a truly original act. Her dry and quirky style has been compared to the likes of Maria Bamford and Kevin McAleer and underneath it all she is guided by her passion to share her joy of the mundanity of life and bring people together through laughter.

Áine has been working on the professional circuit for years, performing at major international festivals and with some of the country’s biggest names. Similarly, she has become a leading advocate for the Irish language and continues to be involved in interesting projects, namely Bright Club, the science comedy night. In addition to comedy, Áine is also an award winning actor, documentary filmmaker and gifted social commentator, as displayed by the success of her recent Tedx Talk.


“A fresh and exciting new Irish act” Deirdre O’Kane

“Destined for great things. Hilarious.” Alison Spittle

“Her awkward self-stylings had the audience in hysterics.” Funny Women UK

“Áine is cool!” David O’Doherty
