Gowna man’s new TV show airs this week

The teams will also take a hilarious dive into Ireland’s colourful past, selecting both unforgettable and regrettable moments that could do with being cleared from history.

A new comedy panel show fronted by Gowna-native Kevin McGahern airs on RTE 2 this week.

The brand-new series, ‘Clear History’, with broadcasts at 9:30pm this coming Thursday night, January 7, aims to rewrite the past in the name of weekly guests who will be asked to put comically cringy moments from their personal histories on public display.

Captained by Joanne McNally and Colin Murphy, opposing teams will re-live iconic moments from the nation’s history as well as their own personal embarrassments, hoping to make them much funnier the second time around.

The teams will also take a hilarious dive into Ireland’s colourful past, selecting both unforgettable and regrettable moments that could do with being cleared from history.

Clear History is produced by Kite Entertainment, the company behind such hits as Gogglebox Ireland and Ireland's Got Talent, while McGahern formerly hosted Republic of Telly (2013-17) and Kevin McGahern’s America.

McGahern also acted as the character ‘Sim Card’ in the TV and film series Hardy Bucks, as well as starring in the independent feature film No Party for Billy Burns which was written and directed by friend Padraig Conaty.

He also co-wrote with playwright Philip Doherty the multi-award winning stage play, The Devil's Ceili.

Most recently McGahern and his comic pals came to national attention after they lampooned Irish rom-com ‘Wild Mountain Thyme’.

McGahern released a mock trailer for his own film ‘Rocky Mountain Romance’ which turns the tables and serves up some choice American clichés.

in ‘Rocky Mountain Romance’ McGahern teams up with fellow comedians Justine Stafford, Peter McGann, Tony Cantwell, and Trevor Brown to tell the tale of a wet behind the ears Mullingar man who sets off to New York to seek fame and fortune in the movie business.

However the video, which went viral online and viewed thousands of times had to be taken down due to alleged copyright infringement.
