Family Shows

When the town is full of clowns it can be hard to tell what shows are suitable for the younger family members. This is our guide to the best family events to amuse the under 18’s over the seven days of comedy this October.

In association with:


The Lords of Strut: The Family Show

Saturday 29th and Sunday 30th October - An Taibhdhearc Theatre - 14:00 - €12 .

This is a show for the whole family, bring your granny! Loveable idiots and brothers: Famous Seamus and Sean-tastic will do anything to be famous, really anything. The brothers have charm, wit and good humour, with flashes of surprising acrobatic skill and just enough naughtiness to keep kids and adults guessing. The show is high energy, funny and suitable for all ages.

Silent Disco for Kids: Hallowe’en Fancy Dress Party

Monday 31st October - MAGIC MIRRORS SPIEGELTENT 14:00 - €7

Silent Disco at Róisín Dubh and the world famous Silent Disco Street Parties in Galway’s West End are the stuff of legend. And now the Comedy Carnival are doing one for kids. It’s all happening on the afternoon of Monday 31st October in the Spiegeltent in Eyre Square. It’s fun for all the family as kids and parents dance like nobody's watching while singing like nobody’s listening. This will be a blast. Suitable for All Ages.

HOW TO DRIVE A BUS (KIDS SHOW)

Saturday 29th & Sunday 30th October - Eyre Square 14:00 - €5

The children's show with a bonkers bus driver, a clueless conductor and an actual double decker bus. 

"Wonderful nonsense for all ages" skinny

This year’s Vodafone Comedy Carnival also has a wide selection of afternoon and early evening mixed bill & improv shows which are suitable for ages 15+. See vodafonecomedycarnival.com/programme for full details.
