Colm O’Regan Wants A World-Wide Word @ RTE Radio 1

RTÉ Radio 1 featured a new episode of Colm O’Regan Wants A World on Monday May 1st  at 1:30pm.

In 2016 the radio series won the Irish PPI award for Best Radio Comedy as it takes a humorous funny tour around the brain of the top selling writer and performer as he explores one of his favourite subjects – our use of language.

Colm O’Regan Wants A World-Wide Word  is the third episode of the series and and is about how the growth of the internet has changed the way we speak and write. The 4th show – CO’R Wants a Bleedin’ Word – is all about slang and broadcast on the June Bank Holiday Monday at 1.30pm.

And if you would like to be amongst the live audience in Dublin on May 29th then read below  –

With the aid of guest experts plus sketches performed with brilliant comedy actors Paul Tylak and Tara Flynn, our favorite Corkman – author of last year’s best selling Bolloxology – will unpick the linguistic foibles that characterise this wordy nation of ours.

Both shows (broadcast Mondays May 1st and June  5th) were  recorded live in The Sugar Club in Dublin’s Leson St.

NB – Colm – with Tara & Paul plus special guests – will be recording two brand new episodes live in The Project Arts Centre on Monday  May 29th at 8pm. Limited tickets available here.
