A Celebration of Father Ted 24
Showing on Thursday 29th Feb

Join us in celebrating one of the greatest sitcoms ever made, as we welcome
renowned stand-up Joe Rooney for a night of all things Father Ted!

Joe featured as the rebellious Father Damo in the classic Father Ted episode The
Old Grey Whistle Theft, leading Dougal astray with his earring, cigarette smoking
and bad-boy attitude.

Joe will host a screening of the episode, take you behind the scenes and set you a
Craggy Island quiz – then prepare yourself for an all-inclusive ‘Lovely Girls
Competition’: have you got the loveliest laugh, the loveliest walk, and can you make
the loveliest sandwich?

There will also be priests aplenty, plus appearances from a nursery-rhyme singing
Ziggy Stardust, Nirvana, Johnny Cash and many more – and the evening wouldn’t
be complete without a sing-along to ‘My Lovely Horse’!
Come and meet Joe and immerse yourself in the very silly delights of Father Ted.

Ah, go on… you will!

“A purveyor of choice gags, a natural storyteller, guitar in hand, Joe Rooney delights
the room with his infectiously manic delivery.”
