This week’s The Late Late Show line-up

To Whom it Concerns, on this Friday night’s Late Late Show…

Joanne McNally is the hottest person in comedy right now! She will tell Ryan about the women who storm the stage at her gigs, her 62-night run in Vicar Street and how she could have been Dr Joanne McNally.

After 112 days at sea, Galway man, Damian Browne captured the hearts and minds of the nation as he became the first man to row from New York to Galway. Having conquered Everest in the past, he will tell Ryan how he coped with solitude on the Atlantic and how the expedition almost ended in disaster in Galway Bay during the early hours of Tuesday morning.

He received the Freedom of County Wicklow recently for his heroic work of shining a light on Motor Neurone Disease. A special person like Charlie Bird requires a special interview, so The Late Late Show has upped sticks and moved to his house here in Wicklow for a chat with Charlie Bird and his wife Claire Bird. Professor Luke O’Neill joins Ryan on the couch to discuss his enduring love of science, how life has changed over the past two years, and what exactly makes us human. And The Late Late Show is going to tackle the cost of living on this Friday’s show with expert advice on everything from the simple and cheap ways you can keep your house warm this winter to the big-ticket items that will deliver real savings as prices rise. Financial guru Eoin McGee, the Caribbean Dub Santis O’Garro and Gaff Goddess Laura de Barra will have some simple hacks to put some money back in your pocket. Plus, The Coronas perform the lead single from their new album and up-and-coming pop star Flynn makes his Late Late Show debut.


Tune in to RTÉ ONE this Friday at 9.35pm for the Late Late Show.
