    Ryan Tubridy was my guest on the Season 1 finale of The Laughs of Your Life. Four years and eight seasons later, I think it’s safe to say that A LOT has changed for Virgin Radio UK’s brand new presenter. Which is why I asked him to come back as my Season 9 finale guest. He talked to me about running out of juice as the host of the Late Late show, his taxi ride to the Oireachtas Hearing, and the joys of being a ghost in London.

    Eoin McGee

    Eoin McGee

    You might have seen him on Instagram or his RTÉ TV shows divvying out money advice - Eoin McGee is the financial planner who has been on a mission to teach Irish people How to Be Good With Money and it was great fun to have him as my guest on today's show! He chatted to me about surviving the life-threatening fall that left him with a brain bleed, how he and his brothers honoured his Dad’s memory with a special glass of whiskey, and the first memory of laughter that involved him pissing on his friend’s head!

    Pat Spillane

    Pat Spillane

    From his appearances on the Sunday Game before his recent retirement, Pat Spillane became a voice and face of Irish life as familiar as Bosco or Anne Doyle! But he's much more than the crank on the couch as I came to find out. He talked to me about growing up with a pub as a playground, the mountain he had to climb to woo his wife Rosarii, and how he has managed to live his entire life without having to cook, clean, or change a nappy. 😬🤯

    Donal Skehan

    From pop stardom, to food blogger, to celebrity chef and food author, Donal Skehan has had a *very* interesting career arc. He and I crossed paths about a year ago in slightly unexpected circumstances, and it was great fun to chat about that. We also chatted about the Barbie doll that came between him and his brother John, a recent dark time in his life, and getting his own back on Dustin the Turkey, amongst many other things. I hope you enjoyed this chat as much as I did.

    Mary Lou McDonald

    Mary Lou McDonald

    Not for the first time on The Laughs of Your Life, I come face to face with a politician who I do an impression of! Mary Lou McDonald wasted no time in bringing that up, but she's a good sport, as well as being a fascinating guest, who I've been very keen to have on the podcast for a while. She talked to me about the failed hair glow-up that left her looking like Bosco, her unusual approach to stress relief, and where she thinks her political career could go.

    Arthur Gourounlian

    Arthur Gourounlian

    Having had the pleasure of working alongside him on Dancing With The Stars, I knew Arthur Gourounlian had an incredible life story to tell. From having to flee the war in Armenia with his family at the age of 12, to creating a new life and identity for himself through dancing in Europe, to coming out to his mother, and the death threats he received from his own family about his marriage to Brian Dowling. We covered so much…. and AND yes, I asked for it and he delivered… an exclusive Beyoncé story. Chatting to Arthur was pure joy, I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. ❤️

Great Podcast

Really enjoy this. Great guests. Always guaranteed a laugh. Marty Morrissey up there with one of my favourite episodes. Would love to hear Joanne Mc Nally, Tommy Bowe and Nadine Coyle in the new series. Think they’d be great guests.
