Ross O’Carroll-Kelly quote:

The Rossmeister General is coming to your gaff! And the lockdown isn’t going to stop me! That’s right, people! I’m taking my act from the stage – and into your bedroom! Or your living room! As a matter of fact, you could go totally mad and enjoy me in every single room in the house! My one-man show, ‘Postcards from the Ledge’, is returning – and it’s being live-streamed. So whether you live in Foxrock or New York, Cork or Cape Town, Limerick or Sydney, you can have me over for the night. Call it a date. And as usual, there are no strings attached.”
