A Cavan/ Dublin comedy sketch troupe 'LinceCraic' has posted an hilarious new video online.
'LinceCraic' is the brainchild of Butlersbridge-native Malachy McKeever, who with dozens of his friends have been making and posting comedy sketches on the internet for the past number of years.
The latest video, 'An bhfuil cead agam dul go dtí an PJ Fitzpatrick', follows a love triangle of sorts with the apex being a young plumber named PJ Fitzpatrick.
The sketch was filmed in April this year, and posted online last week.
“I started LinceCraic as way to develop footage as a show reel for acting,” explains Malachy, who recently starred in several Iarnród Éireann adverts. The former St Patrick's College student has also worked on Republic of Telly with Gowna's Kevin McGahern, radio play 'Pulp Injection', and the 'Phoning It In Show' podcast.
“I've gravitated towards comedy. I started out trying to write really serious drama but it always ended up taking what I felt was the funniest option,” says Malachy.
The new video features several faces familiar to working in the Cavan area. It was shot and directed by John McKeown who has produced several videos by the award-winning Finn Keenan, and Niall Cutler on sound.
Starring Michelle Beamish from Cork as 'Maeve', Malachy McKeever as 'PJ Fitzpatrick', and Darren O'Loinsigh from Ballymachugh as 'Derek', others involved include Eamonn Elliott, Philip Healy, Michelle Maloney Ger Bree, Pádraig Conaty, Jo-Ann Ward, and the Tannams.
“Myself and my friends have been making videos for years. Its very much a joint effort by myself and John [McKeown], he's excellent with the narrative and it allows me to be as weird around the story as possible.”
