Episode 34 – Jack Lukeman

This week on PODAROONEY, I chat with Jack Lukeman. I first saw Jack back in the late nineties in a place called the Da Club in Dublin. For a brief period it was a comedy club every Saturday from ten till twelve and then as the revellers from all the surrounding pubs came in for a late drink Jack would take to the stage with his band The Black Hearts performing a set of mostly Jacque Brel songs sometimes joined by the beautifully sultry Camille O’ Sullivan. It was cabaret at it’s best. Jack took to the stage like a matador able to control even the most feral of audiences. Always dressed to the nines he gave a tour de force performance full of drama and passion and always a little tongue in cheek. His talent and ability to perform have not waned over the years and he has gained a gaggle (they are not geese but I like the alliteration) of loyal fans worldwide since those early days. Ooops, did I mention the voice? Oh, just listen!
