“It’s an incredible time to be in Ireland – there is such a rage among the public like never seen before here. If you are one of those people who are sick of politicians, broken promises and hypocrisy, then I think my show is the therapy you need,” says the Nob Nation creator.
Callan’s routines are never far away from controversy, having raised the ire of politicians, sports stars and media celebrities in recent years.
“I don’t think anyone in Government or public life would be happy to be included in my show, but it’s all in the spirit of good fun and a great night’s entertainment with lots of comedy and music,” he added.
The Monaghan-born comic is also known for his sharply topical routines and outspoken interviews on The Saturday Night Show on RTÉ One television.
Oliver returns to RTE Radio 1 with an new series of his hit show Callan’s Kicks on 9th October.
