Patrick Kielty Almost Live!

Show Summary

Unusual and controversial, part of the reason that Patrick Kielty went out only 'almost live'. Unusual for a Prime time chat show it was filmed in Belfast and attracted a host of top name guests over it's five season run. Introduced the radical step of having a spinometer in order to pick guests for future shows. However the Pope, Roy Keane's dog and Bin Laden all failed to show. Show's included Sharon Corr challenging Oasis to a drinking contest, sending out for a pint of Guinness for Jimmy Nesbitt and playing a 'prank' on the show when Belfast was bidding for European Capital of Culture. The European Capital of Culture judges touring the city were greeted with the sight of a group of young Irish dancers, dressed in full regalia, jigging on every street corner they turned.
