Following a sold-out run on the Peacock stage in November 2022, Queen of Ireland Panti Bliss is hitting the road with her smash-hit comedy show If These Wigs Could Talk.

After sold-out runs at the Abbey Theatre, Vicar Street, and London’s Soho Theatre, the Queen of Ireland is coming to Galway as part of Galway Comedy Festival 2023!

Fresh from making history on RTE’s Dancing with the Stars, If These Wigs Could Talk meets notorious drag queen Panti at 54, after a lifetime of accidental activism, far-fetched shenanigans and making a full time show of herself, now taking a moment to question what her purpose and place in this changing world is.

Expect salacious stories, impassioned polemics, and some seriously funny soul searching as Panti takes us from rural Mayo to London’s glittering West End to the Irish Ambassador’s residence in Vienna, where along the way the answer to her existential question presents itself where she least expects it.

Panti invites you to learn from her ridiculous mistakes, laugh at her glittering failures, and share in her triumphs, in this big, beautiful and brilliant night out.
