This gem of a book contains popular Irish comedian Tom O'Connor's favorite Iris stories, all of them funny, some of them almost believable, and all recounted and laced with his inimitable flair and wit. Collected together over many years - starting on his grandma's knee, continuing through his schooldays (both as student and teacher) and on through countless travels and stage appearances throughout the Emerald Isle - the stories and jokes cover all aspects of Irish life, from the pub to the church, from the home to workplace. From pearls of Irish logic to witty retorts in the face of adversity, this enterprising book proves once and for all that there's no finer wit than that of the Irish, and no greater nor more observant story teller than Tom O'Connor.
A household name through his highly successful television shows, including London Night Out, Night Out at the Casino and The Tom O'Connor Show, Tom O'Connor is one of our funniest comedians. With seven popular games shows, including Name That Tune, Gambit, Password and Cross Wits, to his credit, Tom continues to undertake a heavy schedule of concerts, cabaret and after-dinner engagements around the country. He lives in Berkshire with his wife, Pat.
