Radio 4 stand-up show for Patrick Kielty

About a post-Brexit Northern Ireland

Patrick Kielty is to record a Radio 4 special about the effect of Brexit his native Northern Ireland.

Borderline: A Postcard From The Edge Of The Union is one of several programmes announced by the BBC today as part of its Festival Of Funny.

Kielty – whose father, Jack, was shot dead by loyalist paramilitaries in the UVF in 1988  – has been critical of the Northern Ireland protocol that has effectively led to a border in the Irish Sea.

The show will be taped at his hometown of Dundrum, Co Down,  on March 6 and broadcast on March 14.

Radio 4 has been airing half-hour stand-up specials in a dedicated 7.15pm slot every Sunday. This week, it will be Eleanor Tiernan, followed by Anna Morris and Stephen Buchanan, then Kielty’s.
