With the Conal Gallen Show, you just never know what’s coming next; no two shows are the same.

As Conal himself said: ”I can’t remember what I did in last night’s show, never mind months ago!

“Every night the show takes on its own life and the stories go wherever the road takes us.”

And when he isn’t singing, he’s telling jokes - loads and loads and loads of them.

“No long boring “Obsevational Comedy “I try to get as many laughs into the show as possible,” Conal said.

Conal is back on the road on his own, doing stand up shows. This follows two years of touring a comedy play “A Bit On The Side” - a tour that was only supposed to last three months.

He added: “It was a huge change for me, doing the play. It was my son Rory’s idea, and he co-wrote and produced it with me.

“We had such a brilliant time with it. But now I’m glad to be back doing my stand up shows because I have more freedom. I don’t have to remember the lines every night.”

Conal has been touring the world for over 25 years from Australia to America, from Dubai to Athenry.

And still loves what he does.
