Hello and welcome back to The Comedy Cast; today you’ll be hearing from Irish stand-up comedian Rory O’Hanlon.
We start off asking about how the previews have been going in the run up to his show at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
We get talking about the whole idea behind having to have a theme for shows at the Fringe and why comedians do this and why some of them use the term very loosely.
We speak about Rory’s Edinburgh Show “Getting Serious“, how he’s been preparing for it and what’s the show’s going to be about. We get a bit nerdy then on Edinburgh and speak about what he’s learned over the year from performing there. We chat about the highs and lows of performing at the Fringe and how one of the best parts of it is meeting other comedians from all over.
We talk then about the other show he’s running with former Comedy Cast guest Danny O’Brien about a variety show they’re putting on every day.
We speak about why Rory’s laptop is set to Spanish instead of English.
We get talking then about why if you want to ‘make it’ in Ireland you have to make it in England first, mostly because the Irish love to claim someone once they become well known.
We speak about the differences between Irish and British crowds and how there’s very little really, the biggest differences are when you go out into the sticks away from the cities.
We chat about sleepy English seaside towns and how they’re like something from old Scooby-Doo cartoons.
