Lunedi Lunacy

With our upcoming trip to Ireland I thought I should get into the mood with a touch of Irish humour – visual and verbal.

From an early 80s show on BBC here’s Irish comedian Dave Allen here’s a little sketch from the days when £10.00 was something pretty big – now it’ll buy you a coffee at Heathrow.

 

 

In searching for a more contemporary Irish comic I was hard pressed to find one that didn’t feel that swearing added colour to what is already a most colourful language; or who did not feel that they had to shout every punch line.  Mind you that may not be just Irish comedians from what I’ve seen.  However I did find Keith Farnan was right – that damned accent is pretty charming.

 

 

On this day in 1755: British governor Charles Lawrence and the Nova Scotia Council order the deportation of the Acadians.

  1. So – I knew you were heading Londonwards, but didn’t realise you were hitting the Emerald Isle. Healthy doses of Panti Bliss warmly recommended.

  2. “was hard pressed to find one that didn’t feel that swearing added colour”

    When I read this kind of sentiment, I immediately think of the old Burlesque dictum: ‘If you can’t get a laugh, drop your pants’.
