Friday night’s show will also feature Co. Fermanagh six-piece The Tumbling Paddies as musical guests.
A stellar line-up has been announced for this week’s Late Late Show, featuring multi-platinum singer-songwriter Hozier, Breaking Bad star Bob Odenkirk, Irish broadcaster Stefanie Preissner and parents Maurice and Kandice Barron.
Hozier, the award-winning Wicklow superstar, will appear on the show for a world-exclusive performance of two brand new songs. The celebrated artist will discuss his newly released EP, Eat Your Young, fresh off the release of the music video for the EP’s title track. Ryan Tubridy will also ask the singer-songwriter how he celebrated the 10-year-anniversary of his worldwide smash hit ‘Take Me to Church’ and his busy summer plans as he prepares for his upcoming tour.
Emmy-winning comedian and actor Bob Odenkirk will chat with Tubridy about how playing a dodgy but loveable lawyer in the hit series Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul saved him in more ways than one. The American actor and filmmaker will also dish on what it was like becoming an unlikely action star in his late 50s and how Irish comedian Dave Allen inspired him to pursue a career in comedy.
Broadcaster and author Stefanie Preissner will discuss her difficult road to motherhood and why she wants autism acceptance rather than awareness. The award-winning writer is also currently working on three new projects.
Preissner is best known for creating the comedy-drama Can’t Cope, Won’t Cope, which premiered in Ireland in 2016.
Tubridy will also speak with Maurice and Kandice Barron about their four-year-old daughter, Ava, who was diagnosed with a rare form of kidney cancer. After being given a 5% chance of survival at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, Ava is now in remission and her story was referenced by U.S. President Joe Biden in both his State of the Union and his St Patrick’s Day addresses.
Moments like this feel so unreal. An unbelievable honor to just be in that room, no mind having Ava’s story being told. What a day !! pic.twitter.com/mYivSatuml
