Letter To My Younger Self

Write, perform, discover, learn, be open, be honest, be true to yourself. You don’t need someone else’s approval. Don’t do what you think people think you should do. Do what is good for you only even though other’s disapprove. Don’t mind the gossip mongers, naysayers and the takers. Don’t let people disrespect you or take […]

Holy Terror!

I’ve been terribly awfully busy of late. That’s not a good thing necessarily. Being busy that is. I mean if I was busy scratching lottery tickets, that would be fairly desperate and sad. However mostly I’ve been busy doing good things. Okay here are the good things; I’ve been writing and shooting short sketches with […]

Jayz That’s Some Weapon

Hello there. It’s been a long time since I updated my blog. I have been busy I suppose. Since the last blog I’ve performed comedy shows in Bangkok, Barcelona and Amsterdam as well as the busy pre-Christmas Irish stand up comedy schedule. I also was making an effort to keep my podcast Podarooney going although […]

I want to practise thespianism!!!

Try Pod!

Roughly every two weeks I put out a new podcast. My podcast is called PodaRooney. I thought it was a good name; y’know like whackarooney, smasharooney, bloggaroony. I have been podarooneying now for nearly two and a half years. The format is fairly straight forward mostly in that I interview someone and have a bit […]

I AM FATHER DAMO FROM FATHER TED

About twenty years ago I played the part of Father Damo in Father Ted. Father Damo was to Father Dougal the kind of bad influence you try to keep your son or daughter away from but they will inevitably gravitate towards. Father Damo wore an earring, smoked and stole and told his superiors they were, […]

Booking A Comedian For Corporate Events

I know, lets book a comedian for our corporate event! Yep, that’s a good idea. No seriously, that is a good idea but where do you go to find one? Well you can Google search, ” book a comedian” and no doubt a raft of booking agents will come up and they will be able […]
