I met Malachy McCourt in The Village Underground Comedy Club in Manhattan. He was on before me doing his first ever stand up gig at the age of 82. He rocked the house and was by far the most edgy and controversial act on on the night. It's just one more feather on the cap of a man who has taken life by the horns and lived every minute of it. From dire poverty in Limerick to being a regular guest on The Tonight Show on NBC, Malachy was a huge star in the US long before his brother Frank's success with Angela's Ashes. I had a chat with him in his Manhattan apartment.Follow @joerooney1 and @castawaymedia for news of episodes, events and more.
