Top Comedian Pat Shortt New JLo Of Tipperary.

Thurles born Pat Shortt has hysterically joked that his latest on screen character will catapult him to become “the new JLo of Tipperary”. In his most recent role, audiences will get to see a whole new side to Pat. Indeed, they’ll get to see all of him, because Pat goes naked to play the part of Padraig in a brand new hilarious comedy series entitled “Frank of Ireland”.

Premiering, as it did on April 15th last, the series follows the trials and tribulations of an anti-social fantasist and self-proclaimed musician called Frank Marron, who still lives at home with his mother.

Set in a leafy Dublin suburb, the series boasts an all-star cast and crew. The show stars and is written and directed by Brian and Domhnall Gleeson, with Sharon Horgan as one of its executive producers. Other cast members include Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (Love/Hate) and Brian and Domhall Gleeson’s father, Brendan.

Pat Shortt’s character on the show, Padraig, is the father of Frank Marron’s (Brian Gleeson) ex girlfriend Áine, played by Sarah Greene. Like any project involving Pat, his character Padraig and the Frank of Ireland show will have you in stitches.

To catch a glimpse of Pat Shortt in his birthday suit, tune into this hilarious new comedy show, which airs on Channel 4 on Thursday nights, at 10:00pm or stream all the episodes on the free to view All 4 app and streaming service, (Click HERE).
