Him Off The Telly


This afternoon.

Republic of Telly’s Bernard O Shea in costume for the first time as ‘Grandpa Hoover’ before he makes his theatrical acting debut in the stage adaptation of the 2008 road movie Little Miss Sunshine.

Joining Bernard, whose character was played by Alan Arkin in the film, are Gabriel Vick, Sev Keoshgerian, Lily Mae Denman, Mathew McDonald and Lucy O’Byrne (above second right), from The Voice, who plays the role of Sheryl.

Little Miss Sunshine runs at the Olympia Theatre until August 17.

    Bernard -zero-charisma-hack- O’Shea? While your at it, why not get , Neil Delimare on stage too? (and set the stage on fire)

      Add in
      Deirdre O’ Kane
      The Squinty Pear Twins
      Pj Gallagher
      Martin King and
      yer woman off the Trivago ads and I’ll help you to collect firewood.

        Deirdre was funny in paths to freedom and remarkably had a whole career playing the same character since
        She is currently playing in appliances delivered ads – which have informed my choice never ever to place an order with that company even if they had the last washing machine in Ireland

          Just when you think she’s gone away again after doing her character – she pops back on something else, like Gogglebox or the Paddy’s Day carriage.

            Well I asked because I was interested in hearing your opinion which on music, I respect :)
            He divides opinion
            I remember the late George Byrne was particularly scathing

            Thanks for that :)

            And sure George was a Rovers fan so he wasn’t right about everything!

        The Trivago wan is nice and swingy though…and she always makes eye contact. (well with me anyway).

          The law of diminishing returns –
          I used to like her but her ubiquity has bred contempt.
          For a start, all she talks about is hotel rooms….

          I have to say –
          these days, I only feel truly alive when I’m having a good bitching session :)

            lads, please have some respect. the lady’s name is Gabrielle Miller. she and I are currently engaged in a fairly passionate relationship (of sorts).

            Sources tell me Katherine Lynch is always fresh hell- even if performing while sober.

        Ah sure people would watch anything. If you haven’t already seen it, check out The Lateish Show with Mo Gilligan, its TERRIBLE!!! Steve Coogan got stung as a guest the other week and by the end of the show looked like he wanted to kill himself.

        Lol I think that’s a bit unfair to Twink who is just a typical song and dance man/ woman of her generation

        1. Spaghetti Hoop

          Fair enough. Surprised that she didn’t push any of her kids into the lustrous world of Irish ‘showbiz’ / panto.

          1. Paulus

            I thought BB was being sarcastic: Twink’s sprog was pushed in our faces from just after she left nappies behind.
