Well thats the last of the selection boxes. I had a choice this evening of either taking down my Christmas Tree or updating my website. They were the two jobs on the list. So I chose this one. The Christmas tree can wait…. ’til Easter.
Last year was an amazing year. I loved every second of doing the slot on 98fm and was sad when The Morning Crew finished (I took to the bed for a fortnight).
Also I had the most amazing time opening for Joan Rivers for three shows on her most recent tour. She’s an amazing comedian and very lovely lady. It was a treat from start to finish. I even wore a tie on stage…A TIE! (dressing for Joan Rivers is terrifying!).
I’ve become accustomed to the Joan Rivers touring lifestyle and I’m bringing all of this expertise to Neil Delamere’s tour. At the moment he is ignoring ALL of my suggestions (Floor length silver coat, team of personal assistants and 5 star hotels). Never the less his show is still absolutely brilliant and has an added treat (you’ll know it when you see it!).
The tour runs right up until April and then straight afterwards i’ll be doing solo dates which I will post up here in February….if the Christmas tree is down..All of the dates I’m doing are on the Live Gigs page but for a complete listing see his site www.neildelamere.com
If you’re missing Meet Your Neighbours, you might like to have a look at this. I’m going to put more of it online. Hopefully we’ll do another one!
Hope you all had a great Christmas and aren’t too miserable with it being January and back to work week and all that. I had a great Christmas though didn’t get to sit around as much as I’d have liked. There really is nothing like watching the four Die Hards in a row with a tin of Quality Street.
I was well-chuffed to be part of that “next big thing” article in the Independent at the weekend. My favourite part was texting my mother to tell her I was on the front of the indo and then writing “….in the nip”. Apparently she had a meltdown in Dunnes.
Meet Your Neighbours – Thursdays on RTE1 @ 10:15pm from 17/11/2011
Some of you might know that I’ve spent the past year working on PJ Gallagher’s new series. Its called “Meet Your Neighbours” and it finally hits the air on Thursday, 17th November 2011 on RTE1 at 10:15pm. I play a couple of characters but mainly Pat who is the siamese twin of Gerry who is played by PJ. We had a brilliant laugh making it. There’s a glimpse of behind-the-scenes fun in the out-takes at the end of each episode.
There are loads of new characters to look out for are Maura and Dora the country sisters, The Dub, The Balfes- a couple obsessed with plastic surgery, a happy go lucky taxi man, a old deaf couple and Mrs O’Donoghue and her home-help and a load more recurring and one-off characters. Above is a photo of Pat & Gerry as they were in the original pilot episode which was filmed long ago in December 2010.
You’re Fired – Monday 13th November 2011 @ 10:20pm on TV3
Also on Monday (13th November) I’ll be popping up on the panel for “The Apprentice – You’re Fired”. That was a bit scary and I have to keep biting my tongue so I don’t let slip who was fired!! PLEASE DON’T ASK ME!!!!!!
Just to let you know in November I’ll be doing a weekend of shows with Deirdre O’Kane. These are her only Irish dates this year. The gigs will be in Tralee(18th), Thurles (19th) and Dublin (20th).
Also I’m currently doing some dates with Neil Delamere who is touring his new show “Restructuring”. I’ve already done a date in Gorey and Wexford and I had a blast. I’ll be supporting Neil on some of the dates for the rest of his tour. They’re detailed on the gigs page. For full details of his tour have a look at his site. www.neildelamere.com
Myself and Eric Lalor have also started doing our our full shows back to back as “The Chalk & Cheese Tour”. This kicked off in the Axis Theatre in Ballymun last week and it was brilliant craic. There are more dates being booked at the moment. They’ll be up on the gigs page as soon as they’re confirmed.
Full details for shows with Deirdre, Neil and “Chalk and Cheese” are on the Gigs page.
You're probably here because you either saw me do a gig, are related to me or know me from years ago and heard I've been on the telly. I hope it's the first one and you enjoyed it..... Also I hope I didn't have notes written on my hand, wear a wrinkly shirt or swear. These things sometimes happen. If they did I do apologise!
Hope you find what you're looking for on the site and if you don't email me firstname.lastname@example.org
Support for Neil Delamere
