NUI Galway Students’ Union presents Al Porter and Support
We are delighted to announce that our first comedy gig of 2015/16 is Al Porter on Monday 14th September at 8pm in the O’Flaherty Theatre. Tickets are just €5 and are on sale from the SU Office (Mon-Fri 10am-5pm) and the SU Engineering Building desk (Mon-Fri 11am-3pm). Make sure you get your ticket as you don’t want to miss this gig!
Caution: This show is not for the easily offended!
Al Porter is one of Ireland’s most colourful comics. At twenty years old Al is quickly building a reputation as one of the country’s most uproarious and flamboyant talents. He had early success when after a mere three months he was a semi-finalist in the UK wide ‘So You Think You’re Funny’ competition in Edinburgh.
Since then Al has been a finalist and Audience Choice Winner in the nationwide Craic Attack competition, and a finalist in the Capital Comedy Club competition.
Whether playing to a raucous home crowd in Tallaght, or to more reserved London punters, Al’s disarming manner and camp ribaldry endears him to each audience.
Welcome newbies! We are delighted to have you here at NUI Galway and we have a load of events lined up to make you feel very welcome to the NUI Galway campus – your new home!
We are always here if you need a chat or want advice, directions, condoms…anything really! Our office is open 10am-5pm Monday to Friday during term time. You can find us upstairs in the Áras na Mac Léinn building beside the College Bar. We are also on Facebook and Twitter for the chats.
