A quick look at ‘Make Me Laugh’ organiser, Dean Scurry’s, twitter profile shows he is a very busy man
I do stand up comedy, I run workinclassrecords.com, I produce and present Dole TV, I co-produce ‘HipNós’
So we were delighted when he agreed to make time in his schedule to chat to us about the upcoming gig in the Axis Theatre Ballymun!
First of Dean, thanks for chatting to us, you seem to be a multi-tasking master! Make me Laugh is all about showcasing the talents of a group of new comedians whom you have helped learn their craft, did you receive any similar support in the early days of your stand-up comedy career?
Ye from Des bishop, when we made Joy in da hood in Ballymun
That must have been quite an experience, did this encourage you to set up the workshops or was there another source of motivation for taking that plunge?
A bit from the experience with Des, from Aidan Killian, from making Journey of a joke with DCTV and also from axis Ballymun. I also wanted to take things back to backs with the comedy club In Ballymun
Ah yes, I remember the characters you discovered in that set of workshops earlier in 2012 , which was aired on DCTV, why did you choose not to record this in the same way?
Been there done that, also that type of thing costs money to do correctly, this project is also for a different purpose, to get comedy in the club in Ballymun back to basics after 5 years of having all the top acts in the country play there numerous times. We spoilt the locals a bit.
The internet as usual has been a 3 ringed circus of comedy this week (d’you see what I did there? ) So where better to start than with our friends over at Chunk.ie who teamed up with Final Boss Media to bring you this hilarious look at classic Irish tv…
Ah the typical Friday dilemma…
I can’t think of any good #FF‘s. No one has really “brought it” this week.
Perhaps this is the solution?
If you happen to be a woman between the ages of 18 and 88 then right now it’s probably one of the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy… am I right? The whole world seems to have gone bananas over this ‘erotic romance’ and I was starting to feel left out of all the fun, until I found these hilarious gems online that is!
First off it seems absolutely everyone is cashing in on the 50 shades trend…
I certainly won’t be buying it for my mammy!!!
Now obviously with anything this popular there are bound to be plenty of parody accounts out there, one of the favourites definitely has to be #IrishShadesofGrey…
Slowly he ran his finger down the middle, parting the pink softness, feeling the moist sticky centre. He loved a Mikado.
Mary slowly parted her lips & slid out her tongue, she had waited days for this… She loved getting Communion at mass
with tweets like those how could you keep a straight face??
Ok folks and folkettes! It’s Friday again (I know!) so it’s time for another round of Randomania!! What delights do we have for you this week…..Read on and enjoy!!
Bit of an Edinburgh theme to start this week…..seems some of the comedians are trying out some new career moves while in Edinburgh for the month…..
Moving swiftly on……
Do you remember that Sky One show “Don’t stop me now”? Well it seems our very own Rory O’Hanlon made an appearance on it….and here’s the proof
So yeah if you’re ginger it appears he loves ye!
Now for some tweets….someone needs to calm down (or don’t! cos it’s funny!)
I was in jeopardy of losing my voice entirely. If u can’t understand that, your mother’s a WHORE!!!!”
With the Rose of Tralee on this week, it got me thinking…..there’s only guy I would want to see present it….
Have you got a “lovely bottom”?
This made me giggle……
We’ve all been there….haven’t we? No….just me then?
And finally for today……
Without that little voice in your head, you wouldn’t be able to read this.
Till next week people, have a great weekend and don’t forget make time for some laughter and randomness in your life!
Friday is upon us once more folks so it’s time to bring on the randomness again!
Seems I’m not the only one who can’t get this song out of my head…

Hey, I just met you, and this is crazy, but here’s my number and a model car I made out of matches in prison. Call me maybe?
Moving swiftly on…
People can be so helpful somtimes!:)
I saw a boat today with a sign that said, “For Sale”, so I added an “ing”. Fucking idiots, lucky I was walking past.
