He is arguably best known for his acting and in particular for playing Father Damo in the Channel 4 sitcom Father Ted, appearing in the episode “The Old Grey Whistle Theft”. Rooney had a starring role as Timmy Higgins in the RTÉ television comedy Killinaskully, which ran for five series. Joe also wrote on the fourth and fifth series of Killinaskully. He currently hosts the podcast PodaRooney, on which he interviews guests who are mostly involved in the entertainment industry. Joe has performed stand-up worldwide, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Shanghai, Beijing, Hong Kong, Barcelona, Brussels, Moscow, Muscat (Oman), Manama (Bahrain) and Dubai. He has also performed at Irish festivals in Kansas City (Missouri), Milwaukee and La Crosse (Wisconsin).
Fast becoming a familiar face on the Irish comedy scene, Williams regularly hosts and performs at Dublin’s iconic International Comedy Club. His skilled storytelling and hilarious material have earned him slots at festivals including Electric Picnic and this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival with his debut show ‘No Star Reviews’.
Martin Angolo’s comedy is a mix of one-liners and silly observations. A regular at all the main comedy clubs all over Ireland and the UK, he’s one of Ireland’s best joke-writers and has written for BBC radio, TG4 and has performed on Sky TV and Virgin Media TV. Martin is an act not to be missed.
“Martin’s quickfire wit and razor sharp reactions, coupled with his boundless on-stage energy and enthusiasm, make him an act to watch out for.” Krank.ie
