The Late Late Show viewers can expect plenty of laughs this week

The line-up for Friday night's episode has been announced


Fans of The Late Late Show are in for a seriously funny episode this Friday.

First up – two powerhouses of Irish comedy, Pat Shortt and Tommy Tiernan, will chat to Ryan about joining forces for the gritty black comedy Dark Lies the Island.

The film is set in a small Irish town over a week-long period, and also stars Moe Dunford, Peter Coonan and Charlie Murphy.

Rising star of the airwaves and of screen, Doireann Garrihy, will also be on the show to impersonate some of the well-known Irish faces that feature in the second series of The Doireann Project.

But the social media star will also be there for some serious chats, as she will discuss the biggest year of her career to date, as well as dealing with online bullies.

Former Irish football international Kevin Kilbane will also be in studio to discuss, amongst other things, feeling Irish whilst living in Britain in the Brexit era, his love of Mayo football, and his devastation at the loss of his father.

He has also just been unveiled as one of the upcoming contestants on Dancing On Ice, and will predict whether his football skills will transfer to the ice.

There will also be a special performance from Moya Brennan, along with the RTÉ Philharmonic Choir, ahead of receiving her Lifetime Achievement Award at the upcoming RTÉ Radio 1 Folk Awards.

And Hudson Taylor will perform their brand new single too.

The Late Late Show airs Friday, September 27 at 9.35pm on RTÉ One.
