Colm O'Regan Wants a Word

Colm O'Regan Monday 3 May 2021

Bank Holiday Monday, October 26th at 3.30 pm, RTE Radio 1 is pleased to present Colm O'Regan's PPI award-winning comedy show 

Just days before the second lockdown, a new episode of 'Colm O'Regan Wants A Word' about the New Abnormal was recorded. Here Colm takes the listeners on a satirical and light-hearted look at how Irish people have survived the last few months of 2020 and what new phrases and words have crept into our everyday language. With special guest writer and broadcaster Fiona Looney - plus sketches performed by brilliant comedy actors, Paul Tylak and Sharon Mannion - Colm will unpick the linguistic foibles that characterise this wordy nation of ours. 

Colm O’Regan Wants A Word is produced by Sideline Productions and funded by the Broadcast Authority of Ireland.
