This week’s Late Late show line-up features Hollywood stars, comedians and Irish singers.
Ryan Tubridy will be chatting to the stars of Daddy’s Home 2.
Mel Gibson, Mark Wahlberg, Will Ferrell and John Lithgow will chat about their new film. They will also discuss how the bane of every Irish father’s life – the immersion – features in one of the funniest scenes in the film.
Gibson also chats about his friendship with President Michael D Higgins, filming Braveheart in Ireland and his strong ties to Longford.
Wahlberg discusses why nothing in life prepares you for being the father of a teenage daughter, losing money to P Diddy on the McGregor/Mayweather fight and meeting the Pope.
Ferrell, another son of ‘The O’Farrell County’, engages in a “Longford-off” with Gibson and admits to being the most embarrassing Dad on stage, while Lithgow chats about his award-winning role as Winston Churchill in The Crown.
All four also addressed the ongoing fallout from the allegations against Harvey Weinstein, Kevin Spacey and others in Hollywood.
Two comedians will also be appearing on this week’s show.
Peter Kay will be dropping by to tickle funny bones and chat about everything from being one of the world’s most successful comedians to his love for Bolton and his Irish roots.
Comedian Alison Spittle is putting the Midlands on the map with her critically acclaimed new show Nowhere Fast. On Friday night, she’ll join Ryan to talk about getting her big telly break.
Star of The Missing James Nesbitt will tell viewers why he is throwing his support behind Holles Street’s RetCam appeal to raise funds for vital equipment to help save the eyesight of premature babies.
He’ll also be chatting about what it was like to come back to the character that made him so famous in the Cold Feet revival and why he’s finding filming sex scenes even more awkward as he gets older.
There will also be plenty of music on the show this week.
An icon of the Irish music scene, Christy Moore is back with a brand new live album, On the Road, featuring performances drawn from the last three years. He’ll join Ryan on Friday night to chat about his amazing career and the inspiration behind some of the most beloved songs in Irish music. He will also be performing some favourites.
Ham Sandwich will also perform.
The Late Late Show airs Friday, November 17th at 9.35pm on RTE One.
