Episode 46 - Christiane O'Mahon

Christiane O'Mahony is a harpist, comedienne, actor and
playwright (why isn't "playwright" spelt "playwrite"?) She uses the
harp as part of her stand up and is very funny with it. Y'know when
someone brings a harp or indeed any instrument onstage at a comedy
gig there are the begrudging purists who think, "stand-up is about
one person onstage talking into a mic". Well that's a load of
bollocks. If you're funny you're funny, and Christiane is funny
with or without the harp. She is multi-talented and great craic to
be around and is the only person I know of who's parents paid
someone to try and talk her out of a life in show business. She is
currently touring with her own play "Women of The Rising" so has
taken a break from stand up but hopefully she will be back in the
clubs soon. I really enjoyed talking to her and could have nattered
away for another hour or two. I just realised we never mentioned
Harpo Marx!
