Comedy satirist Oliver Callan is back with a brand new Bank Holiday comedy show on Monday 1st April at 1.30pm, RTE Radio 1.

Callan's Kicks is the latest brainchild of the impressionist who rose to fame through his work on RTÉ 2fm's Nob Nation and TV appearances on The Saturday Night Show.

The Monaghan mimic said: "I'm going to continue to tackle official Ireland in Callan's Kicks”.

"Politics, sport, entertainment and media figures will feature strongly and the series will focus more on satire with a message rather than cheap gags".

The former journalist who appeared on RTÉ 2fm's Nob Nation and on TV on The Saturday Night Show added: "If Nob Nation was an irreverent teenager, then Callan's Kicks is definitely the more mature adult."

He said: "We won't be holding back for fear of upsetting the rich and powerful, but we won't set out to be nasty or personal either.

"Ireland is still in turmoil and there is still a lot wrong with the State in terms of cronyism, hypocrisy and a failure to punish those who've destroyed the economy and reputation of the land."

Callan is also set to bring his range of characters to the Olympia Theatre, Dublin and the INEC, Killarney in April and May.
