Dave O’Neil on DAVE
After 30 years of comedy, television, radio, film and books Dave O’Neil finally decided it was high time he wrote his own sitcom. But after a first attempt at an idea around a detective, it took Glenn Robbins to convince him to write about his own life. “But I thought what’s so funny or interesting about my life? Glenn said, ‘Every time I ring you, you are doing some rubbish gig and there is some disaster at your house with your kids,'”
O’Neil recalls. “So I said ‘If I write it you have to be in it.’” That was some two years ago. Fast forward to Friday and Dave will finally see the light of day, with O’Neil -and pal Glenn Robbins- playing himself in the sitcom pilot. They are joined by Dave Hughes and Brendan Fevola (also as themselves) with Emily Taheny, Dave Thornton, Geraldine Hickey and Dilruk Jayasinha also appearing.
