The Comebacks (Part 2): Deirdre O’Kane
The Fascinated Live show as the Dublin Podcast Festival was an embarrassment of riches. In part one I was joined by fabulous Singer/Songwriter Naimee Coleman and in part two the fantastic Deirdre O’Kane. This is interview is proof if it was needed that Deirdre is very very funny.
In this interview she talks about the struggle of writing a standup show. The lead up to her return to comedy in 2016 and we revisit some ghosts from her past!
2017 has been a hugely busy year with Deirdre voicing the hugely successful Googlebox for TV3, producing Ireland’s largest ever charity comedy show for Comic Relief at the 3Arena, hosting the revamped IFTA Film & Drama Awards for national broadcaster RTE, and starring alongside Debi Mazar and Hillary Duff in Darren Starr’s hit sitcom Younger (TV Land, US) set to air in the autumn. Irish comedy’s prodigal daughter has also made a long-awaited return to her stand up roots, delighting audiences across the country with her sell-out show, 1 Dee, which continues to tour due to popular demand with dates currently being added through the end of this year.
