John Colleary: Shouting Yourself to Sleep, What IFs & Having Threesomes in Hi-Vis!

Humans Discuss Being

John Colleary compares this life thing to a football match - which is quite apt as it turns out! :) He talks about this being the second half, the injury times he has experienced, as well as the highlights. John also talks about his Dad's recent passing and the illness his Dad experienced leading up to his death. John reflects on life, how finite it is and the inevitability of death. Other topics discussed include: creative creating, going back to college, Irishness, cultural movements and identity in sport and communities.

16: Talking Spice Girls with Seann Walsh and John Colleary

Up To 90

'Do you think it helps being so ugly doing stand-up?' This week of Up To 90 comes live (and inebriated) from Vodafone Comedy Festival 2018 in The Iveagh Gardens, Dublin, as Seann Walsh confesses to his formerly consuming Spice Girls obsession. We talk Limewire, putting your destiny in the hands of an iPod shuffle, favourite Spice Girls, moving to Brighton from London as a young 'un, doing stand-up in playgrounds and garnering quite the South London primary school following, serving seafood risotto to Supergrass lead singers, saying 'LOL' without irony and of course the perennial debate of our time: Blur versus Oasis. Listen out for a guest appearance form the KING of Irish comics John Colleary (who of course turned out to be a Spice Girls roadie...obviously) as he reminisces about England vs Ireland riots on the Kilburn Road, his preference for All Saints and even dons his glasses just so we know he means business. Obviously it's totally unacceptable to record people while under the influence and throw caution to the wind, so please feel free to get in touch about how we've let ourselves and our families down at Twitter and Insta @Upto90Podcast. ALSO please don't forget to support our mate @seannwalsh on the upcoming series of Strictly Come Dancing where is sure to show off his amazing hair and keen ability to decipher new meanings from Spice Girls classics (Two Become One will never sound the same again).

18 - John Colleary

BUCKSHOT PODCAST

Recorded in the 'ambient-sounding' Patriot's Inn. This week I chat with one of the country's finest comedians. John has had me to the point of almost crashing the car while driving from our gigs together with his impressions and anecdotes. He's been the star of several Irish comedies from The Savage Eye to Irish Pictorial Weekly. He is the quintessential artist, an actor, a stand-up and a musician.

#10: John Colleary

The 80% with Esther O'Moore Donohoe

John Colleary is a writer and comedian based in Dublin. Here are the some of the reasons why I am 80% happy for his success. 1. He is one of the stars and co-writers of the thrice IFTA nominated The Savage Eye. 2. He has gigged with some of Ireland's best stand-ups including Des Bishop, Jason Byrne and David Mc Savage. 3. He is from Sligo, home to the best town in Ireland, Ballymote. He also knows Kian Egan's (Westlife) brother. John dreams of one day being rich and famous enough to purchase a Swarovski crystal hi-vis vest. No doubt he will achieve this dream. TO JOHN! (everyone clink glasses).
