Mentalist Keith Barry’s first virtual slot on US Telly from a studio located in his back garden in County Kildare – his fifth appearance on the show – chills host Ellen.
“I think I basically wore the production team down, I spent a fortune on calls to the office. In these challenging times for the entertainment industry you have to try everything! Persistence worked and I was thrilled to be asked back on the show”.
Brain Hacker Keith [Barry] says he was refused his scheduled interview with new signing Neil Prendeville because he had just appeared on rival station Cork’s 96FM chatting with PJ. Keith got told, whilst waiting in reception that “Neil doesn’t want to interview him”. He says he thought it was a wind-up at first, and said the producer seemed ‘quite dumbfounded’ when delivering the news.
