Why so seriously funny ?



Television news


With April comes April Fools’ Day, a time when we all tell God-awful jokes guilt-free (Knockknock. Who’s there? A little old lady. A little old lady who? I didn’t know you could yodel! you’re welcome.) But let’s be honest, we’d all rather skip that nonsense and plonk ourselves in front of some quality TV jokers instead. Par exemple...

Will Farrell – Daddy’s Home

He’s not an intentional joker in Daddy’s Home 2, but he sure does bring in the laughs! We also LOVE this funny man in just about every movie he appears in. When you see his name, you know it means guaranteed comedy gold!

Available now to rent from €4.99 on Virgin Movies now.

Frankie Bergstein – Frankie’s Home

The biggest fan of Frankie’s jokes is Frankie. She cracks herself up and never takes any situation too seriously. Her favourite pasttime (aside from living every day like it’s 4/20) is getting her kicks from pushing uptight Grace to the edge with hilarious results.

Watch seasons 1-4 on Netflix, Virgin TV 999.

Derek Waters – Drunk History

A man who creates a TV programme in which the entire premise is for guests to get drunk and attempt to recall historical events is a grade A joker in our book. Cheers to that.

Virgin Box Sets, seasons 1-3 available now.


Taystee – Orange is the new black

We’re going to just go ahead and say what everyone thinks…Taystee is one of the best characters on OITNB (if not THE best!) Always aiming to inject humour and fun (and dancing) into any situation she finds herself in, if looking for a laugh, we’d want Taystee by our side.

Watch season 1-5 on Netflix, Virgin TV 999.


Jeo, Murr, Sal & Q- Impractical Jokers

Ever really want to be friends with people whilst simultaneously counting your lucky stars you have nothing to do with them? We’re p retty sure that someday soon, card decks will have four joker cards instead of two, with the faces of Joe, Murr, Sal and Q on them, purely as a sign of respect.
