He's known for his off the wall interviews and madcap antics so we can only imagine what will happen when Jason Byrne's new sitcom hits our screens this evening. Based on his original radio series, Father Figure tells the tale of Tom (Byrne), a man who tries to be the best dad he can be to his two sons while his wife is working full time. Keep your eyes peeled for a few familiar faces with Pauline McLynn (Father Ted) as Mary his Mum, Dermot Crowley (Luther) as Pat his Dad, Karen Taylor (Touch Me I’m Karen Taylor) as Elaine his wife, and Michael Smiley (Utopia) as his best friend Roddy.
