    Comedian Oliver Callan of Nob Nation fame, who has been in the media limelight of late, for all the wrong reasons, arising out of a recent alleged 'confrontation' between himself and a certain Kerry footballer/fashionista in a Dublin pub, 'came out' to the nation on tonight's The Saturday Night Show, hosted by Brendan O Connor. Apparently some newspapers accused him of being homophobic because of a recent sketch on his saturday morning radio programme in which he allegedly made gay jibes about said footballer's interest in fashion. I thought the sketches were hilarious, even if a little close to the bone. - Nothin' worse than insinuate that a very obvious heterosexual man is a bit quare.There ya go... takes all sorts... I suppose! I think he is probably the funniest comedian around right now.

    I'm not particularly bothered about him coming out.
    I just have a hard time figuring out why it matters in the context that he's putting it out there.

    He's allowed to make homophobic jibes, swipes and comments because he's homosexual??? On the national broadcaster??

    Computer says no.



    I'm not a major fan of Nob Nation...it's rare indeed that any real wit is evident in the skits, and in general is quite nasty. Gift Grub is leagues beyond it IMO.

    If he were straight, would there be outrage re the homophobic comments etc? If so, why is that defused in any way by his being a homosexual? Is that not discrimination???

    I need a cup of tea.
