    Can you still get tickets to be in the audience? and if so, how?

    That was decent, despite Vogue Williams.

    Kind of reminds me of chat shows of old, more off script. I think if Tommy was given a regular gig where he might get to interview interesting people now and again, he would make a show of Tubridy and D'arcy. Tommy has that very important ingredient in an interviewer which they both lack, an actual interest in people and trying to strip them down to what they're really about. I can't bare his comedy but he's definitely a lot deeper than his madman stage persona.

    Tommy is defo an interesting person. Id actually rather his guests were random strangers than these z listers who we see all the time. That would be better IMO.


  • Registered Users Posts: 25,420 ✭✭✭✭sligojoek


    No better buchall than me to give out about anything RTE do but this was fair enough.

    I'm not big into Tommy but I don't dislike him. The only reason we watched it is because my early 20s daughter adores the ground Tommy walks on. He did well and let the guests ramble away. He made a show of Darcy and Tubberdy who cant manage without cue cards supplied by the producers.

    It's also good to see him not being interviewed.

    And not a mention (that I heard anyway) of cancer, suicide or depression.

    Sorry. I only started watching at the end of C D

    Effortless, relaxed and engaging conversation. Kept me interested throughout.

    I didn't find misery in the conversation at all. Not in comparison to what the LLS would deliver. Didn't know Christy was into singing like that, for all the previous interviews of him I've seen before.

    I confess, I would much rather have seen Tubridy asking Vogue about how a Trannie gets a penis and an erection.

    10/15yrs ago, I wouldn't have followed Tommy. Never have watched a full gig. Lately, I am drawn to how relaxed he is with himself, the world and how he draws out the comedy in that.

    Great show. I hope people don't moan to RTE and get it canned. Unfortunately there is too much demand for shoite tv for something like this to stick around.


  • Registered Users Posts: 339 ✭✭Dub.


    I'm surprised he said that as the LLS has been good to Christy and Aslan down through the years.

    In fairness Christy has always returned the favour to RTE.

    He never paid a visit without leaving a little something for Gerry Ryan and the rest of the boys..

    Very first guest, including death!

    Vogue Williams was very good humoured when Tommy told her that he didn't know who she was. Some other models or 'celeb types' would have gone into Meg Ryan mode instead.

    As much as I want to dislike Vogue she actually seems sound enough and doesn't take herself too seriously.

    That was the first time I ever saw that fellow from Aslan. Sad that he is sick. Never heard any of their songs before in my life. I had heard he was a good singer but let's remember he is sick so he really should not have been prompted to sing at all.

    You'd finish Christy off if you didn't let him sing, he lives to sing.

    Didn't even look sick,and the song he sang was decent.

    Am I reading too much in to this ???


  • Registered Users Posts: 199 ✭✭TOEJOE


    I don t think Tyrnan is funny at all.Aslan are a great group of musicians with Christy They have a classic with crazy world. finally I thought Tyrnan did a decent job in the interviews.

    Exactly, that was a misery slot done right. I suppose to be fair to Tubridy he's not a comedian and the LLS isn't supposed to be funny, but there always of feeling of getting off on misery on that show. I don't think a Friday night chat show is the place for it.

    Just watched last night's show and thought it was very good.

    Tommy was much calmer and seemed much happier to chat than he did on last year's show.

    I'm not always a big fan of his stand up but do enjoy when he's on a show just having a chat.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,847 ✭✭✭Armchair Andy


    Watched it there now really enjoyed it. Russell Howard has an infatuation with his mother which is boring beyond belief.
    Christy Dignam was really interesting. My wife remarked how well he looked as we saw him 10 years ago in a pub and he looked desperate.
    Gonna watch it again next week, great format.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 1,827 ✭✭✭AnneFrank


    I really enjoyed the show, like most of the comments above, i though the interview with Christy was really good, and actually, his singing without the band was pretty emotional.
    Great format, but he needs better guests than Vogue and that other chap


  • Registered Users Posts: 486 ✭✭Duggie2012


    the set is atrocious isnt it. why is it set in the 1960's? awfull looking. i find tommy interesting so i'll have another look next episode.
