TONIGHT in Main Space - True Pirates Never Die

A notorious pirate ship has been lost at sea, and the surviving members of the crew wash up on a mysterious island. But more than the crew has washed ashore; there’s also the pirate captain’s stolen treasure, which will bring much more than worldly wealth. A pitch-black comic tale of swashbuckling adventure. When the captain dies in the storm, the hunt is on to find the box of treasure—and the key—which will bring its keeper eternal life.

COMEDY - I Wrote a Joke in 1987

Michael Redmond wrote a joke in 1987. He then left Dublin to try his luck on the London comedy circuit… with just the one joke! This is the story of that journey and why he has left something in his will to Ryan Tubridy. Probably best known for his role as the monosyllabic priest, Father Stone, in the iconic sitcom, Father Ted, Michael promises that he will use some two/three syllable words in the show and might even throw in one with four syllables. He also guarantees that there is more than one joke in the show.
