    Default Clip of Dermot Morgan on the Late Late Show in 1996

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBUfJ0q6v2Q&feature=related]YouTube - Dermot Morgan - Late Late Show interview 1996 (Part 1)[/ame]

    The above link is to an interview with Dermot Morgan on the Late Late Show in 1996.

    It is a reminder of how good Morgan was and how much of a loss he was, and also how good a broadcaster Gay Byrne was on the Late Late.

    Thanks for that, Tommy. A pleasant reminder of how good both were at what they did.

    How many chat show hosts have the presence, the instant public recognition, to be able walk out, back to audience and still be 'there'?

    Many in the current Cabinet are way beyond satire.

    The closing scenes from Peter Sellars' final movie Being There come to mind:
