Dara Ó Brilliant

I've been to three comedy gigs this year (and Tim Minchin at the O2 with full orchestra is yet to come - can't wait for that) - Frankie Boyle (poor and really lacking in new material), Al Murray (really good) and Dara Ó Briain, who was truly excellent and one of the funniest gigs I have ever been to. Would highly recommend to anyone to go if you get a chance to see him live.

He's also been a revelation as the host of 'The Apprentice - You're Fired' since Adrian Chiles went to ITV earlier this year, and he was on great form this week in offering truffles to the fired candidate (no spoilers), some of his one liners and how he interacted with one of the best panels so far on the programme - which has had a new lease of life and I'm enjoying it almost as much as the main show itself.

And I can't wait to see him with Stuart Baggs when 'The Brand' eventually leaves ... that might have to be a four hour long special!

More @ The Apprentice:


  1. Can't wait for the candidate interview show, when Sugars' henchmen will surely expose the Baggman.

  2. Well the trailers would suggest that 'The Brand' is in for a tough time, but I think he might win it now.
