PJ Gallagher back on tour with ‘Concussion’

One of Ireland’s most popular comedians, PJ Gallagher, is making a highly anticipated comeback with his first Irish tour in two years. PJ is taking to the road with a total of 14 Irish dates for 2015 with his brand new show, ‘Concussion’.  Heading this way in March PJ will play The Marketplace Theatre in Armagh on 13th March.

Well known as a star of RTÉ’s Next Week’s News with Bernard O’Shea, Meet Your Neighbours and Naked Camera, PJ will hit the stage for his first date in The Lodge at Ashford, Cong, Co. Mayo on Saturday, 24th January and finish the tour on Saturday, 28th March in Vicar Street, Dublin.

A natural on the stage, PJ has played sold-out shows throughout Ireland as well as the biggest and best comedy festivals that the country has to offer, including Kilkenny Cat Laughs and The Vodafone Comedy Carnival.

Most recently PJ has joined the breakfast show on Classic Hits 4FM, as well as completing the Route 66 Motorbike Challenge, in aid of Temple Street Children’s Hospital.

“I can’t wait to hit the road every weekend from January to March”, said PJ. “It’s been 2 years since I’ve toured around Ireland, and I’m really looking forward to taking Concussion around the country.”

The comic has received rave reviews with the Irish Independent crediting him with ‘Clearly getting better all the time.’

According to the Sunday Times Culture Magazine: “For a man who ambushes people as they go about their everyday business, makes them uncomfortable and embarrasses them for laughs, there is something strangely appropriate about PJ Gallagher’s route into comedy.”

“Concussion” runs from January to March 2014 throughout Ireland and comes to Armagh’s Marketplace Theatre on 13th March.  For a full list of Irish tour dates visit
