Here’s the big-name guests appearing on this weekend’s Late Late Show


Late Late Show guests

Ryan Tubridy is set to be joined in studio by some of the entertainment industry’s biggest names.

With the entire nation glued to the coverage of US President Joe Biden’s visit this week, Friday’s Late Late Show is offering viewers a break from Mr. Biden’s whistle-stop tour of Ireland. First up on what is certainly an eclectic line up is the award-winning, multi-platinum singer/songwriter Hozier. The Irish artist will be in studio to deliver an exclusive performance of two of his brand-new songs.

The Wicklow native will also join Ryan for a chat about his new EP Eat Your Young, how he went about celebrating the ten year anniversary of his acclaimed EP Take Me To Church and his plans for what is an action-packed summer of touring.

Next up is Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul and Nobody star Bob Odenkirk, with the Emmy-winning comedian and actor joining Ryan to discuss how undertaking these iconic roles saved him in more ways than one. The 60-year-old American actor will also chat about his unusual ascension to fame in his fifties, and why Irish comedian Dave Allen inspired him to follow his dreams of become a comedian.

Author, broadcaster and presenter Stefanie Preissner will then join Ryan to talk about her difficult path to motherhood and how being a parent is the hardest thing she has done. Pressier, who is also working on three new projects, will also discuss why she wants to bring about autism acceptance, rather than awareness.

And finally, Ryan will speak with parents Maurice and Kandice Barron about their daughter Ava. Ava, who is a cancer survivor, has recently been referenced by American President Joe Biden in both his State of the Union and St. Patrick’s Day addresses.

Music will also be performed by the six-piece folk trad band The Tumbling Paddies, a band from County Fermanagh.
