Chat shows these days are essentially game shows with celebrities,  gone are the heady days of Letterman and Parkinson when guests actually talked about things other than what they are  plugging.

Chris O’Dowd however is one guest that  bucks the trend . If you have seen the Boyle man on chat shows before you know he is  a throwback to the guests of yesteryear,  in that he has the ability to recount  great stories and he was on fine form on Jimmy Fallon the other night.

O’Dowd  talked about everything from GAA to  the uniqueness of The Late Late Show and how he once went on a weekend  trip to Paris and ended up staying for five months which  had host Fallon and the audience in stitches!

There is a genuine love for the Roscommon man here at home and rightly so, keep her lit Chris!
