"extremely funny, most imaginative, exceedingly agile and irresistibly charming"
The Irish Times
In 1983 Billy Magra was hailed as one of Ireland’s best stand-up comedians, appearing on the Late Late Show and blazing a trail for others. But then his ‘other half’ Billy McGrath emerged as an award-winning TV/ Film director (U2; Italia ’90; Pogues; Clannad; Bowie; Rats); comedy producer (Sean Hughes; Izzard: O’Kane; Rubberbandits; Tiernan; Bishop); first ever Commissioning Editor of RTÉ TV Entertainment & now Sideline (Great Irish Bake Off; GAA DVDs; RTÉ Radio 1’s Comedy Showhouse & grintage FB).
Now Magra & McGrath re-unite to explore how a lifelong hippy punk can still buck the system - and grow old disgracefully.
