Mairead caught up with a man of many talents on the show - he's a comedian, actor, TV presenter, writer and the voice of many, many ads - Kevin McGahern!

Kevin is currently working on a new comedy panel show for RTÉ called 'Clear History' with team captains Joanne McNally and Colin Murphy. In the show, guests will share moments from their lives that they would rather forget.

In the spirit of sharing, Kevin told a story from when he was a teenager with no underarm hair and was quite self conscious about that. He had basketball game coming up and knew he would be found out, so he came up with a solution of sorts...

Kevin is also starring in a new film which premiered this week at the Cork International Film Festival called 'The Bright Side'. It is inspired by Anne Gildea's book 'I've Got Cancer, What's Your Excuse?' and it tells the story of stand-up comedian Kate who is diagnosed with cancer.

Kevin plays Kate's brother and he said it was a lovely film to be a part of and is a very relatable story. You can watch The Bright Side here.
