Dave McSavage's new series started with a cracking show, irreverent and saying f you to the right people. Tonights show looked at the Arts and for any Grogans drinkers it may have been a tad too much.

Well done to McSavage and Ciaran Walsh the director. Ye fecjkin see you do need to pay the licence fee

It was great but he didn't get his talent from the license fee and if you watched Neil Delamare's rubbish beforehand you would have seen something far more typical of RTE's output

Agreed. After the disappointment of Val Falvey it was great to see it. The President for life, the barman and the Ministers were all outstanding.

ff minister, tubridy, cousin, grandson of IRA gunman, staunch in the revoluntionary period and


irreverent and funny,

Almost had Frank Hall's Minister of Misery
I'm the grandson of an IRA gunman, it doesn't make me funny (though I'm funnier than that bloke whenever I've seen him). But I'll keep an open mind - is this a series?

As far as I can gather, his comedy is usually geared at picking on the weak. If he has changed his tune, that is welcome, but I'd like to see proof first. Even if he has, there are people he has humiliated in live performances that will probably hate him for the rest of his life.

McSavage Andrews is about as funny as herpes. Aggressive bully who likes to abuse and humiliate people, I'm convinced that he is mentally-unbalanced.....

I thought it was quite good. Possibly will only appeal to a minority, but jaysus it's better to appeal to a minority than nobody at all. The material seemed a little close to the first show they did, so I hope he can spread his wings a bit, in future episodes. But, I like the general clowning around aspect to his style. It works well on TV and is a nice change from the standard standup routine, that comes from stage comedy.

The ould bitterness erupts like puss, as some Stickie called Stroke is trying to deny the son of a feckin Fianna Failer a career making the likes of me laugh. The bitterness is a succubus on the veins of the nation , oh holy jesus god git over yer feckin self man
