: Jack Dee Live at the Apollo

2/6. Ireland's Ardal O'Hanlon joins Jack for the second of his comic showcases at the Apollo in Hammersmith, London. When it comes to budget airlines and feng shui, the star of Father Ted and My Hero doesn't pull his punches.

Comedy: Jack Dee Live at the Apollo 10.35pm BBC1

If you thought Ardal O'Hanlon's comic potential had been extinguished by the mainstream, prepare to tear your misconceptions into little pieces and throw them to the ducks.
'His Irishman's credibility may have been dented by his continued association with My Hero but, as tonight's performance makes clear, he's a cracking stand-up, with an uncanny ability to turn pedestrian observations into a masterclass in gentle surrealism. He ruminates on such topics as essential oils, backpackers, fishing and his ongoing struggles with a bad back. "I've had everything from tosser's twinge to weeping hump," he says cheerily. "The surgeon had to take my spine out and rinse it."
His terrific performance is book-ended with routines by host Jack Dee, who helps out by making excellent use of the word "espadrilles" while sporting sideburns that resemble badly treated hearthside rugs. (SD)

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.

Welcome to BBC Genome

Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in programmes, online etc.

This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers, images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.

Your use of this version of Genome is covered by the BBC Acceptable Use of Information Systems Policy and these terms.
