Joe Rooney is one of Ireland best known and loved comedy legends. From The Quacksquad to the Hairy Bowsies, from Further Ted to Father Ted, from Fergus Scully to Killinascully Joe is a multi talented and fearless performer who has taken to the stage and screen under a myriad of guises over the years. He is probably at his hilarious best when standing on a stage with a mic and a three to five string guitar.

Joe has recently appeared in the hit RTE comedy series, âEURœKillinaskullyâEUR, as the character âEURœTimmy HigginsâEUR. Joe is probably best known for his role in âEURœFather TedâEUR as Father Damo, the one who led Father Dougal astray.

Live or on TV, Joe has proven to be a talented and dynamic performer. His 1999 Edinburgh Fringe debut, âEURœFurther TedâEUR, was a huge success with an almost total sell-out season and rave reviews. Joe has since performed all over Ireland, the UK and Europe. His character âEURœFergus ScullyâEUR on TG4âEUR™s Ri Ra has been garnering great reviews of late. He has written for RTE RadioâEUR™s âEURœStand Up SketchesâEUR and is currently working on a romantic comedy musical set during the famine. He is also recognised as one of IrelandâEUR™s top improvisers working regularly with DublinâEUR™s Comedy Improv team and performed

with them in their recent RTE radio show.
