For 20 years Irish amateur humourist, sage, semi-hermetic racanteur, socially awkward cat obsessive, energy drinks misuser and husband Neal O’Carroll has honed the art of starting comedic ramblings with no idea how the first sentence will end, never mind what he will say.
And to what end?
One-man comedy podcast Into Your Head’s roots include O’Carroll’s long enjoyment of classic BBC Radio panel game Just a Minute. From an early age (27) he was starting sentences with “Two Cats walk into a Bar” more frequently than the average man, initially in early 2000s nonsense humour blog Neal’s Belch on his original Newsburp* website, which spawned the unscripted yet dialogue-laden Matchstick Cats webomics. By 2006, soon to be former moped operator O’Carroll had noticed saying stuff is easier than writing, and the rest is history. Particularly the first 400 episodes, which he insists are dreadful. Luckily the series evolved over seventeen years and another 400 episodes to become the free-flowing stream of unconciousness humour podcast it is today.
*No connection to the much later Newsburp podcast, another Irish comedy show that later occupied that domain.
Disambiguations: Into Your Head / BB Max / Sháinne Greoige / Wikis
Please note that the 2002 album Into Your Head by the boy band BB Max was nothing to do with returning Irish comedy podcast Into Your Head. I hear they might be getting back together too, and wish them well in their endeavours. In fact, as of Christmas 2023 it has come to light that at least three musical acts have now had albums called Into Your Head. I worry that the market may become over-saturated. However, I wish them all well in their endeavours.
Please note that the fictional news anchor Sháinne Greoige, who has presented occasional segments, most notably Athy Weekly World News, on Into Your Head podcast, protrayed by my wife Joanne, bears no connection to television’s Gráinne Seoige. We wish her well in her endeavours and those of whoever plays her.
