Larry is an instituion... they can;t ever get rid of him...

one other classic moment was after a round of Larry's quiz and a poor lad hadn't done so well... live on national radio

(After about 24 questions, of which the lad on the phone got 0 correct)

Larry: Well let's see how you've done - well, they didn't really suit you today, did they?
Man on Phone : Ah **** off Larry, yer only an aul bo***x

Defining moment in history...

Kepps, who was the guy that used to host The Late Late Show? Gay Byrne? He was a bit of an institution as well :) Ireland seems to have a few of them... :D


Staff member
alas, Gay has retired, not that he doesn't pop up every now and again... (they nail down the coffin, but he keeps getting out)

Does the turkey from zig and zag still do bits on the late late show? Such a shame when they abandoned him for the big breakfast....
