Following their sold-out show at the Vodafone Comedy Festival, comedy duo The 2 Johnnies return to the Dublin Podcast Festival 2019 (Vicar Street, 14th November). The podcast chart-topping pair will, among other things, talk “riding, Gaelic games and parish news”!
Since their debut at last year’s podcast festival, IT GALZ have continued to sell out live shows throughout Ireland and will host their biggest headline show to date in Vicar Street on 16th November. IT GALZ is a dose of cultural commentary from Jenny Claffey and Lindsay Hamilton. The ladies give their personal takes on a variety of topics from pop culture to women’s issues, through their often comedic and sometimes satirical lens.
For the third consecutive year, celebrated podcaster and bestselling author Blindboy will return for two nights in Vicar Street (19th and 24th November) with topics ranging from mental health to gun laws, feminism, racism and history.
In the US history podcast The Dollop, comedian Dave Anthony reads one weird and disturbing story from the American past to co-host Gareth Reynolds, who has never heard the tale. Gareth’s hilarious reactions are why The Dollop is one of the most downloaded comedy podcasts in the US (Liberty Hall, 21st November).
My Favorite Murder host a live show in Bord Gais Energy Theatre, on 24th and 25th November. Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark’s massively popular true crime podcast has already sold out its first night, with limited tickets available for 25th November.
