Description

Come join Comedy Soc in the Corrib Room of Sult (NUIG College Bar) for the most diverse night of comedy that Ireland has ever seen. Comediversity is a new comedy initiative that recognises that sometimes, for whatever reason, comedy line-ups are very seldom as diverse as they could possibly be. Hence the name, Comedy + Diversity, the perfect mix of a more inclusive collection of laughter. 

Teaming up with Comediversity, we aim to showcase the very best of comedy coming from various diverse backgrounds i.e LGBT+, female acts (We know females aren't a marginalised group, unless of course you're a female act looking to get stage time in a male-dominated circuit), people living in direct provision, acts with disabilities, non-national acts, drag queens and hosted by Ireland and the UK's only stand up comic from the Traveller Community, Martin Beanz Warde.

Featuring Ruth Hunter, Aine Gallagher, Nathan Beatley, Dixie Normous, Niall Horisk, Mike Murphy, Steven Sharpe, Margaret McHugh & Julie Jay!

Tickets are 5 euro for the staff & students of NUIG and 10 euro for the public, available in NUIG Socs Box, on the door, and online through Eventbrite.ie. Admission includes complimentary pizza. Doors 7:30, Show 8pm

A chunk of proceeds will go towards FOCUS Ireland, which aim to tackle homelessness in Ireland.

This event has been generously endorsed by the Office of the Vice President for Equality and Diversity, NUI Galway.
