Joe Rooney has the best quiff in the business. It’s a hairstyle that says ‘I’m here to party’ And any time spent in Joe’s company is a party. Joe is seriously comically multi-talented. He does improv, musical comedy and straight stand up all at a world class level. Best known as Fr. Damo in Fr. Ted and Timmy Higgins in Killinaskully an evening in Joe’s company is a side-splitting treat.
