Andrew Maxwell’s new show is ‘Bananas’.

DOUBLE Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee Andrew Maxwell returns to Ballybofey next week with a brand new blissfully funny show. 

Andrew Maxwell has always been one of the Ballybofey venues favourite and most popular comedians. Add to that the fact that it’s been almost four years (July 2010) since his last Balor gig and it’s show that’s bound to whet the appetite of Donegal comedy connoisseurs.


Packed full of fearlessly intelligent topical observations, delivered in his animated and inclusive style, Banana Kingdom recently completed a sell-out run in one of the Edinburgh Fringe’s biggest venues (playing to over 10,000 people) and a hit run in London’s Soho Theatre. 

Andrew has sold out every Edinburgh run since 2005, playing to over 70,000 comedy fans in that festival alone. A familiar face on our TV screens, you’ve seen him star on The Panel (RTE) One Night Stand (Dave), Monumental, Conspiracy Roadtrip and Live at the Apollo (BBC), 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4) and, most recently, BBCs Monumental.

Andrew Maxwell is at The Balor next Wednesday, February 19, at 8.30pm. Tickets are €18 and are available from the box office on 0749131840 or online at
