Channel 4 and RTS invite you to an exclusive virtual Q&A with the cast and creators of Frank of Ireland.
The first comic vision penned by, and starring, brothers Brian and Domhnall Gleeson and co-written by Michael Moloney (Your Bad Self). Frank of Ireland is produced by Merman (Frayed, Motherland, This Way Up) and the Executive Producers are Clelia Mountford and Sharon Horgan for Merman, alongside Brian and Domhnall Gleeson and Michael Moloney.
Frank of Ireland is a physical and ridiculous brand of humour with an original twist. Frank Marron, played by Brian Gleeson (Peaky Blinders, The Bisexual), is a 32-year-old misanthropic narcissist in arrested development who thinks the world owes him something. But nonetheless, he’s our hero. Frank is single (that’s fine), lives in Dublin with his mother (also fine), believes he’s a musician (but hasn’t written a song or played a gig in seven years and five months) and his ex-girlfriend has just got a new chap for the first time since they split up (absolutely, monumentally fine). Frank is supported by his wingman Doofus, played by Domhnall Gleeson (The Revenant, Ex-Machina, The Force Awakens) who foolishly thinks they are best friends; it’s his job to facilitate Frank’s schemes, while also clearing the mountain of debris left in their wake. A big job for such a fellow.
Q&A hosted by Emma Cox with Brian and Domhnall Gleeson, Sharon Horgan and Michael Moloney.
