Competition: Stars of Father Ted

Pop the Cherry Comedy is delighted to welcome Joe Rooney & Patrick Mc Donnell – who are both well known for their appearances in the popular TV show Fr. Ted to Whelan’s for a special main venue show.

JOE ROONEY: Best known for playing the Dublin gurrier priest “Father Damo” that convinced poor Dougal to pierce his ears,Joe Rooney has been in the comedy business for years.

Having worked as a stand up, a voice over artist, a writer and actor, he’s got more than a few accomplishments under his belt. His charismatic stand up style is a mixture of hilarious observations on modern Ireland – be it our growing melting pot of multiculturalism or the quirky medicine alternatives taking over the nation – not to mention his side-splittingly funny musical parodies. As a stand up, he has appeared on TV many a time and has toured all over the UK, Europe and Ireland. His sketch show with Patrick Mc Donnell at the Edinburgh Festival garnered rave reviews.

PATRICK MCDONNELL: Patrick first wooed Mrs Doyle as Eoin McLove on Father Ted. She loved him and you will too.

Since appearing in Ted, Patrick has had a highly successful career in comedy portraying many hilarious characters on Naked Camera or more recently The Savage Eye. Like Rooney Patrick too is no stranger to Irish television screens but it’s on the stage that he really shines.

Also appearing are Pop the Cherry Comedy favourites Andréa Farrell and Steve Bennett with Niall Farrell as MC, full line-up below.
