The Two Johnnies Save America
Straywave Media & RTÉ are launching a new 4 Part TV series with comedy duo The 2 Johnnies following them on their first LIVE podcasting tour across America, finding out what it means to be Irish in America today, taking in Los Angeles, Miami, Washington and New York.
The series will be broadcast starting April 30th on RTE 2 at 9:30pm and internationally on RTÉ Player.
Each episode will see our duo navigate a new city, set up their live show, and get out and about finding Irish ex-pats and people of Irish heritage who are making an impact in Today’s America, with whom they look into the current state of Irish-Americanness, and what being Irish-American means today. From Actors in LA to Teamsters in New York to Night Club impresarios in Miami – the guys meet a wide and varied bunch of people – Entertainers, sports stars, politicians, musicians, students and regular joes doing interesting things – no one is safe from the 2 Johnnies Gaze! A Grand Tour with a Big Vision and a lot of laughs along the way.
The 2 Johnnies are one of Ireland’s hottest rising entertainment acts from Co. Tipperary – they are comedians, musicians and presenters (and former bad hurlers). They have had the number 1 podcast in Ireland , 7 number 1 singles. They have a massive social media following (a reach of 500k per week) and have recently sold out 2 national tours and had numerous TV appearances. Their first book ‘Dear Johnnies’ sold 20,000+ copies in December alone.
Féile was the first modern Irish music festival.We go on a nostalgic trip back to ‘The Trip to Tipp’ and relive the music, magic and the madness of the legendary concert that defined a generation.
The trip back to tipp includes stellar performances from Hothouse Flowers, The 4 of Us, The Stunning, Something Happens, The Frank and Walters and An Emotional Fish, all performing with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, plus some amazing archive and interview footage from some of the colourful characters around Feile now and then.
We are delighted that Celebrity Salon is coming back to TV3 for a 2nd series. We have an amazing line-up this year ( watch this space for more news on that) – it is going to be awesome.
And there’s a key twist in the format – this year, you the audience can get treatments done from the Celebs and appear on telly.
