This revealing and entertaining documentary spends time with Paul Howard, the man behind Ross O’Carroll-Kelly (top).
Described by the Irish Times as ‘Ireland’s pre-eminent satirist’ and by the Irish Independent as ‘one of the world’s funniest writers’, this documentary attempts to get inside the complex mind of workaholic wordsmith Paul Howard, a writer at the top of his career.

‘We Need To Talk About Ross’ at 9.35pm on RTÉ 1.
