Frog loves Princess

I’m listening to XTC We’re Only Making Plans For Nigel. I’ve eaten too many oven chips. I am bloated and tired and cold but if I got the right filter I could take a selfie that made me look thin and just  enough curiously at odds to make me hip. I could put that on […]

Squelch, squelch, a walk through my heart

Well, how are ye? I’ve been to a lot of Festivals. I think Glastonbury was my favourite despite the mud that sucked at your every footstep and eventually clung to you as you departed so you left an ever dwindling trail of mud from bus to bus to airport to plane to car. There are […]

Oh Ehmmmm Gee

What about ye? I was just up in “Free Derry” last Thursday and had a wander around The Bogside and the general area where Bloody Sunday took place. It reminded me that it was a civil rights march that got ambushed that day. There was discrimination and people inspired by the civil rights marches in […]

Festival Season

Ahoy there mateys, for the last Wednesday in April there certainly is a nip in the air. I believe there were hailstones yesterday and the phrase “snow in high places” was heard on the radio. Its hard to believe the festival season is just around the corner. I hope to God the majority of female […]

The Craic and The Pod

Today I am celebrating the Commemorations of the 1916 Rising by surreptitiously dropping crumbled up Jacobs cream crackers on the floor of the local post office while standing in the queue. I will also buy some Revels chocolate covered confectionery with assorted centres and throw them in the air shouting “up the Revels”. Oh and […]

Fusking Podcast – Pod-a-Rooney

Hello person, I’ve just performed at the Vodafone Dublin Comedy Festival. When I say just, I mean four days ago. ‘Twas great altogether. Apart from performing I was seen walking around with headphones and my Zoom recorder getting quick interviews with fellow comedians Nick Kroll, Phil Jupitus, Stephen Frost, Andy Smart and Tommy Tiernan among […]

The Middle East, Monged, Milwaukee and my very own Comedy Tent

I spent a couple of weeks in The Middle East with Whose Line Is It Anyway. We performed in Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Dubai and Abu Dhabi. I got sunburned on my chest in Abu Dhabi and told all the lads, “whatever you do don’t touch my chest on stage” and what happens? Halfway through the […]

Hello Turnip Head,

Since my last bloggerooney I did a couple of great gigs at the Bath Comedy Festival; Mandy at St John’s Wine Vaults was so accomodating and the pub itself is a lovely old boozer. The same weekend I did a great gig with Paddy Casey in McGettigan’s in Limerick. Last week I did […]
