Ireland always produces great comedians, writers and artists and there’s probably not been a better or equally more bizarre cult-classic comedy than Father Ted on the Irish shores or, to be truthful, in the UK at all in the late 1990s. For those who don’t know, Father Ted was created by Graham Linehan and Arthur Matthews who invented the vividly insane world of Father Ted Crilly. He’s a priest that has been stuck on an Island somewhere off the west coast of Ireland (just past Donegal and past again), in a small parochial house. His days there are shared with the endlessly stupid Father Dougal (Ardal O’Hanlon) and the endlessly aggressive Father Jack (Frank Kelly), the latter who sits sleeping, drinking and shouting – a direct satirical reminder of the later life of Catholic priests. »
