Republic of Telly and 2fm's Breakfast Republic presenter Bernard O'Shea is back on the bill for this year's brilliant Vodafone Comedy Festival in Dublin's Iveagh Gardens...and he's bringing his baby.

Speaking to RTÉ TEN, the comedian said: "A lot of things have changed since I did the comedy festival last year. I've a new baby in my life, a baby girl.

"Last festival I think we stayed out until 4 o'clock in the morning, this festival I won't be going home at all because what's the point, I'll only wake her up! 

"She's going to be on stage with me...she's going to open up before me, she's doing a sketch called 'Oh My God, I Found My Foot'. She also has a sketch called 'The Bold Windies'."

PJ Gallagher will also take to the stage and he added: "I've all new material for the Iveagh Gardens this time around...I'm doing a few sneaky gigs all over the city and not telling anyone about them.

"It's kind of like going to the gym and flexing your comedy muscles for the main event. I'm getting match fit with new jokes."

Tickets are on sale now for the Vodafone Comedy Festival which is on from Thursday July 24 to Sunday 27th.
