Audionetworks represents Comedian Joe Rooney.
Stand up comedian, voice over artist, writer and actor, Joe Rooney has many strings to his huge and accomplished bow. As barfly Timmy from Killinaskully he has become one of Ireland’s most popular “luadars” and the butt of many of Dan Clancy’s jokes. He has also contributed as a writer on the current series of Killinaskully and is presently a sketch writer and performer on Newstalk’s breakfast show. As an actor he has also appeared in many films including the excellent homage to the B movie “Flying Saucers Rock ‘n’ Roll”, alongside Ardal O’Hanlon.
His charismatic stand-up style is a mixture of hilarious observations on modern Ireland (from multiculturalism to alternative medicine) and rip-roaringly funny musical parodies.
In Father Ted he was the unforgettable rebel priest Father Damo who uttered the memorable line, “Who do you prefer, Blur or Oasis?”
As a stand up, he has appeared on the Late Late Show, Ryan Tubridy Show, The Liffey Laugh and The Lounge and has toured all over the UK, Europe and Ireland. His sketch show with Patrick McDonnell at the Edinburgh Festival garnered rave reviews.
