Royal Theatre Castlebar

Ger returns to his hometown for his biggest show to date. For one night only, Staunton plays The Royal Theatre in Castlebar, in what is sure to be a memorable night.

Dublin Solo Show

Deadpan, Mayo funnyman Ger Staunton hit the ground running in 2022. With tours around Europe, India, Dubai and Iraq he has amassed a collection of hilarious stories and insightful anecdotes, mostly while sitting in the corner of whatever local watering hole he has found along the way. Both Staunton’s 2019 and 2020 shows sold out in advance so prebooking for his long-awaited return to Whelan’s is strongly advised.

The Independent

"A rising star who has creased sides in the UK, US and mainland Europe. The Castlebar native creates a tempo all of his own, unpacking his deadpan, immaculately woven anecdotal riffs with a smooth pace and a dark twinkle that has no qualms about upsetting safe sensibilities (as all comedians should)." - 04/01/2020
