    why do D’Brits love these awful exports? Angela Scanlon. Dara O’Briain. Ed Byrne. Andrew Maxwell.

    and why is Scanlon being decommissioned back to D’RTE?

        I really like him. I enjoyed his comedy on the Panel, and think he was a great host in that role too. His science stuff is usually a solid watch too.

        I really am not a fan of Mock the Week mind you.

          Great as a host. Not great with the solo comedy.

          What is really admirable (and a bit baffling) is how (1) he managed to land a science show from the Brits with a UCD science degree, and (2) how he tolerates the talentless Ed Byrne nibbling at his coat tails.

            He may have on the Irish comedy scene, but followed his mate to Britain once Irish audiences realised he was shhhhhhhy-te.

      “Tony Holohan, is it not true that at a cycle threshold of 45 the PCR test returns 95% false positives?”

    Guaranteed flop.

    But by far the greatest irritant in RTE these days is that one trick pony Callally. And the one trick is not even funny.

      1. Paulus

        A recent TV version, fair enough; but his vocal mimicry on Callan’s Kicks is extremely accurate.

        1. jungleman

          I don’t deny he is a skilled mimic. But that’s only half the job. Not only is he not funny, his material is grating and I think betrays an underlying affection for his subjects.

          While the savage eye was hit and miss, at least it had an edge and didn’t pull any punches.

  3. PointofOrder

    I can only imagine how awful this show is going to be. Everything sanitised & pre-prepared and not an ounce of genuine humanity between them. Along with Angela Scanlon’s grating interview style. It’s a no from me.

      1. Free Lunch

        Tommy Tiernan isn’t a mere chat show. It’s a cultural touchstone of our other empathy-devoid, micro-aggressive, empty times. But enough about Pat Kenny.
