Episode 4 – Malachy McCourt

This week on PODAROONEY, I chat with Malachy McCourt. I met Malachy in The Village Underground Comedy Club in Manhattan. He was on before me doing his first ever stand up gig at the age of 82. He rocked the house and was by far the edgiest and controversial act on the night. It’s just one more feather in the cap of a man who has taken life by the horns and lived every minute of it. From dire poverty in Limerick to being a regular guest on The Tonight Show on NBC, Malachy was a huge star in the US long before his brother Frank’s success with Angela’s Ashes. I had a chat with him in his Manhattan apartment.
