Deirdre O'Kane has just embarked on her first chat show, and it's brightening up these cold winter nights already. 'Deirdre O'Kane Talks Funny' sees her chat to a new guest each week, and they're all someone who has made a career as being entertaining.
She really enjoys having more time to talk to her guests, and it's a great way to celebrate them while they're still here to see it! She said the clips shown really are important because they serve as a lovely reminder of what they've done.
Deirdre also told Mairead about how not seeing any women in stand-up meant it never occurred to her that she could try it herself for a long time, but now that there are more women in comedy it's inspiring others to give it a go.
