Personal Quote:

It took me two hours to be made up as Father Jack. I found it repulsive. If I was in costume, nobody would sit beside me. And I don't blame them. I had vaseline coming out of my ears as discharge, incontinence marks on my trousers, prosthetic teeth which I took out to eat, and one blind eye with an opaque lens.

Trivia:

He has a Bachelor of Law from University College Dublin and despite being called to the Bar he has never practiced law in Ireland. See more »
