For Father Ted fans.

Recommended Posts

Michael Redmond who played Father Stone in the series is doing a stand up gig on Thursday 12th November at the Albyn Bar.


Father Paul Stone (Michael Redmond)' date=' an exceedingly boring priest who comes to stay every year. Rarely says a word but insists he's "fine", whenever he is spoken to. Father Stone was struck by lightning while playing Crazy Golf. He gets stuck in the same position as he was when he is struck, and surgeons were unable to remove the golf club from his hands, leading Dougal to comment that "he looks like a trophy" (although somehow they were able to change his clothes). His grandma and mother and father are alive and he is known to have one brother who is a doctor. He hero-worships Ted and once drew a portrait of the two of them together. ("Entertaining Father Stone")

He also is the guy that Stewart Lee (I'm talking about him a lot today) mentions in his 41st Best Stand Up show who Joe Pasquale stole a joke from.

There's some guy from Channel 4's "Faking It" on the bill as well. Kevin McMahon? I've never heard of him.

Thanks for the rep, tried to get you back but I must apparently spread my seed around...

I knew one day my useless Stewart Lee-related trivia would work to my advantage. Even though it's actually from his 90s Comedian dvd and I, like a rookie, said 41st Best Stand Up. Doh. I fear I've lost some nerd-points, how will I ever live this down at the clubhouse?

Here's the Joe Pasquale story too for those who may not have seen it:
