Staying In Tomorrow?


Rory Cowan’s autobiography: Mrs Cowan’s Boy

On The Ray D’Arcy Show

Rayna Connery writes:

Actor and entertainer Rory Cowan will chat to Ray about his new autobiography Mrs Cowan’s Boy, in which he pays a moving tribute to his late mother…

David Gray will join forces with the RTÉ Concert Orchestra for a unique performance of ‘Babylon’ to promote next year’s concert tour, White Ladder: The 20th Anniversary Tour...

Pulp Fiction and The Commitments star and singer Bronagh Gallagher will join Ray on the couch to speak about her new movie, A Bump Along the Way.

Ahead of his Irish tour later this month, comedian Reginald D. Hunter will be in studio to talk about his new stand up show Facing the Beast.

Comedian and Irishman Abroad podcaster Jarlath Regan shoots the breeze with Ray about life as an ‘Irishman Abroad‘ and he will be making one Irish emigrant’s dream come true by announcing the winner of a €30,000 competition to bring them home…

*punches own ‘wobbly bits’ repeatedly*

    Seriously? Each of them is on to advertise a book/film/concert/tour/TV programme.

    And you just know it’s going to be the faked smile/faked interest you get from an A-list director/actor when they’re doing the umpteenth interview with a local cable TV station. “This is SUCH a good question!”

    How much is RTE charging them for the advertising platform? I reckon you could get €10-30k apiece, maybe more if you just let them come on and speak/sing directly to the camera without the €450,000 mediocrity interrupting them.

      But eoin – doesn’t EVERY chat show work that way? Graham Norton’s guests are all plugging something or other. Same for Ross. The only difference is that Darcy and Tubbs dont usually get big names because they’re all in Blighty not here. Unlike Reg D Hunter – he’ll be good I’d say and he’ll plug his gig just like he would on Norton or Ross or any other chat show

        Yes, the only reason anyone, including A-listers, goes on these shows is to plug something.

        I mean, do you expect an actor to go on and say “I haven’t got a film coming out at the moment, I’ve been taking some time off.” ?
