Staying In Tomorrow Night?



Brendan O’Connor

The Late Late Show at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.


Brendan O’Connor will join Ryan Tubridy on the Late Late couch to talk about his imminent return to RTÉ television. He’ll be chatting about his physical transformation, his family life and his recent “baptism” into ice swimming. And he’ll be giving us his frank take on current events.

With the Labour leadership up for grabs, we’ll hear from current deputy leader Alan Kelly on his political ambitions now that the dust has settled on the party’s disastrous general election…

    Friend of mine recently reposted a link to an article this crooked dope wrote in 2007 telling everyone to buy as much property as possible. what a shyster.

          No I’m not, am I?

          But this is coming from the person who called me sugar tits earlier so… :p

    I’m going to view some shoebox with only south facing windows so I can’t watch it, unfortunately.

      I’m really curious as to what tone the interview will take given the attempt to shut that guy up who was talking about the Healy Raes.

      Well don’t judge yet.

      Who knows, he may have a few tips for improved mental health.

    I think it’s great to see Brendan back.
    -He’s not from Dublin. Not a lot of people know that. Remember it the next time you’re thinking of slagging him off, please.

    If RTÉ started wasting money looking for proper talent instead of giving in to someone who wont stop ringing them every day, non-stop, for months and months you’d be complaining about that too.

        @ spUnks

        I get your ‘joke’.
        -I would NEVER aim that low.

        Go and sit in the corner until I say it’s okay to sit in your seat again.

    RTE interviewing RTE.

    And why Kelly? Are they going to interview all the Labour leadership candidates or just the egotist who’ll use any party to get where he wants in politics.

    He’s as Labour as Maggie Thatcher.

      This is what happens when your budget for everything is tiny. Really tiny. Most of their shows concentrate on their own employees/personalities because thats all they can afford to do.
      Ditto for Republic of Telly, there’s a reason they take the p_ss out of Irish RTE shows a lot, because they can’t afford the rights to show clips from anywhere else.

        perhaps they should pay the “stars”less. what could 200k shaved off the top 5 salaries buy?

    “And he’ll be giving us his frank take on current events.”*

    * Subject to interruption and correction should he get too close to the mark.

    1. MoyestWithExcitement

      So the line now is Alan Kelly is ‘fighting the power’? We’re supposed to see him as an underdog bravely standing up to the establishment and not some weasel who made it easier for developers to cut costs at the expense of residents’ quality of life?

      1. Sheik Yahbouti

        Well if anyone is taken in by that stance they are in need of medical assistance. Let him get back to what he does best – cuffing peasants, kicking beggars and sucking up to Multi nationals.

      @ Don Quay Dic Khead*:

      -What are you talking about? Are people funding these eejits?

      * no off fence. it’s me ‘thing’ these daze. nothing person all. i just do it to up set sum people. Who are e silly wound up.

    Wait a second. One chat show host is going to interview another chat show host and they both represent the same organisation??
    No controversial edge, no topical subject matter, no interesting personal back-story…just one oul mate boosting up another oul mate’s ego.

    1. The Real Jane

      Yeah, why are they discriminating against Ray D’Arcy? Can you imagine a lineup with the Dreamboys United – Tubbs, O’Connor and D’Arcy? Oh, you’d stay in for that.

  7. Eoin

    Kelly, O’Connor, Tubridy? Oh my Holy God, that’s got the makings of the WORST Late, Late Show EVER!!! That’s gonna be a cringe/ boredom fest. To think I used to be proud of Gaybo, the show and the calibre of his guests back in the 80s, when the show was an institution and a great advert for the nation. I’ve as many questions about how O’Connor got on the air as Tubridy. Big ugly, witless, unfunny, personality free git. What idiot is giving these nobodys contracts?

    1. Shane

      The powers that be at RTE seem to have all the imagination of an empty packet of crisps. You know there was something there to begin with but all that’s left is a few stale crumbs.

  8. Peter Dempsey

    I like Brendan. He had a tough job interviewing those dour hipsters from Pussy Riot.

    Here we go:

    1) “I have a developmentally-challenged daughter, moan, moan, want more State money… contd P.94”
    2) “Sinn Fein are very bad”
    3) “Denis O’Brien is really great”

    On the physical transformation: He lost a few stone and he’s still like a fat-headed Cork tw@. Who cares?

    1. kirkbadaz

      perfect summary. I’ll be watching gogglebox followed by some heavy bondage and ice cream.

      1. kirkbadaz

        more entertaining. less painful. and I won’t be left with a bad taste in my mouth.

        in the order of your preference

    I watched this last night. Brendan spoke very movingly about disability services and his daughter.

    Of course, some Broadsheet and Rabble readers would rather define him as the man who spoke about “smart ballsy guys buying property”.
