Episode 24 – Dermot Whelan

This week on PODAROONEY, I chat with Dermot Whelan, I work with Dermot on a regular basis with The Dublin Comedy Improv. He is a tremendous improviser and has brought those talents to his radio show The Dermot and Dave Show on Today FM. He also is a drummer with the band The 1234’s covering all the punk classics along with Colm Murphy, John Colleary and Jackie Hamilton (formerly bassist with The Moondogs) and has presented The Republic Of Telly and The Soccer Show. He is a great stand up comedian and impressionist to boot. In this podcast we talk about his growing up in Limerick, making fake news reports, a disastrous audition for a “youth” program on RTE and lots more.
