Just seen Tommy Tiernan on Drury street carrying his own shopping bags like a normal person..It must be strange for the famous comedians to have random weirdos staring at them when they're just going to the butchers.

I just send the maid wife out to do the shopping....although rumour has it i was spotted in Aldi yesterday....the shame!

We don't do comedy well these days... generally rehashed schoolyard humour from gobshites like Brendan O'Carroll... We need to go back to Father Ted, Scrap Saturday, Dave Allen or Spike Milligan for some proper humour. I guess we can lay claim to John Sullivan as the son of an Irish immigrant...

Some people never get the joke .Picked up Des Bishop in Rialto once .Got talking to him and he was complaining about being on telly ,said once you use a joke on telly you can never use it again .He said if he writes a show he can tour it for a year or two but if he writes a tv show he can only use the material once .I dissagreed and said <That oul Irish Speaking American joke still goes down " He sais what do you mean .You speaking Irish as soon as you say something in Irish people look at each other and say or think did he say what I think he said or isint he great an American speaking Irish .Even though you were educated in Private School in Wexford since you were 4 .The joke is you are Irish speaking with a letting on American Accent ,and when you understand that your not really that funny .You want to see the big confused head on him he grinned got out of the car and said thats on my account .Dont think he was impressed .

Picked up his brother in Cork St a while back,what a miserable dry $hite he is.

If you paused the programme before you went out you'd never have met him...Mad!

Similar happened to me when I first moved to the beautiful seaside resort town of Balbriggan, BS. I went down to the local bar with Mrs. Catcher and there was darts on telly, one of the new fangled satellite channels. Mick McGowan was playing in a semi-final of a PDC event and I'd got into the game when the music started in the lounge around 23:30 so I convinced Mrs. Catcher to come into the public bar so I could watch the end of it, the only time Mrs. Catcher has been in the public bar except that night a good few years back when the darts team won something and put on a party that went well into the early hours. Anywaysanall, after a short time I went up to the counter for more drink and who was stood beside me... only Mick McGowan... and I thought it was a live game I was watching on telly. Turned out to be a repeat of a game from a couple of days before that Mick lost after missing 3 at double 5 to win... oh, how we laughed!
