We talk to the witty (and possibly kindest Howler user) @geokypan about her comedy inspirations and memories.

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I live in Waterford in the sunny South East of Ireland. I work in childcare, I'm on a career break at the moment but I'm keeping busy volunteering for various charities.

What kind of comedy really tickles you and why?

I love tongue in cheek comedy and one liners. I also prefer male stand ups for obvious reasons.

Tell us about your comedy heroes.


I could never call a comedian a hero, heroes save lives however I do find Sean Locke and Joe Wilkinson very funny.

(I'm sure some comedians have saved lives..? teehee MH)

What are your favourite comedy shows on TV?

Mrs Brown's Boys

Mrs Brown's Boys and being Irish I absolutely love Father Ted, nothing beats it.

What are your earliest comedy memories?


I remember watching Benny Hill and Norman Wisdom with my Dad. My favourite ever comedy show is Two Pints of Lager!
