Vodafone Ireland and Aiken Promotions have today, Wednesday June 13th, announced a stellar line-up of 65 Irish and international stars for the Vodafone Comedy Festival, which will run July 26th to July 29th in the unique surroundings of Dublin’s Iveagh Gardens.

The exciting international line-up for this year features "Man of 10,000 Voices" and Police Academy Star, Michael Winslow; the king of comedy cool Reginald D Hunter; the irrepressible Pub Landlord, Al Murray; and several Irish (and European) debuts including the Buddha of Comedy Eddie Pepitone, and the delightfully crazy Aussie duo Sammy J & Randy. 

Irish comedy is well represented  with Tommy Tiernan, PJ Gallagher, Ardal O'Hanlon, The Nualas, Kevin McAleer, Barry Murphy and Dead Cat Bounce amongst others.

Over 20,000 people will attend the festival where they will witness performances in four separate comedy venues in the stunning surrounds of Iveagh Gardens, enjoy the colourful splash of street performers, live music and also savour the delights of gourmet food and drinks.
