The people of Dundalk were treated by award-winning comedy impressionist Oliver Callan during the Bank Holiday weekend in the Fairways Hotel, as the star kicked off his live tour.
The Monaghan mimic returned to Dundalk after appearing as Grand Marshal in the town’s St Patrick’s Day parade this year.
The show follows a hit YouTube video “Just Saying” which parodied just about every nuance of the Dundalk accent and its landmarks.
“There was more voices, more songs, more sketches than in any live show I’ve ever done previously so it was a hectic night in the Fairways,” said the creator of Nob Nation while speaking to The Dundalk Democrat.
Callan is celebrating the launch of his new comedy satire series “Callan’s Kicks” on RTÉ Radio One with a brand new show satirising the hot topics of Irish politics, sports and entertainment.
Featuring new characters Katy Taylor, Rory McIlroy and Sean Quinn, as well as old favourites Taoiseach Enda and President Michael D Higgins; a huge range of issues will get the Callan treatment in the topical and biting live show.
Callan has assembled a team to help create the show, including former newspaper editor Paul Drury, journalists Fiona Looney, Paddy Murray and cartoonists Graham Keyes and Paddy Cullivan from the Late Late Show house band.
Callan’s routines are never far away from controversy, having raised the ire of politicians, sports stars and media celebrities in recent years.
