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.
