This is an hour-long special where Gay Byrne introduces us to some of the comedy highlights from his years at the helm of The Late Late Show (which is due for release on DVD on November 15th, in case you think someone would like it stuffed into their stocking). Over his 37 year reign, Gay played host to some of the biggest names in comedy, both Irish and international. Legends of global laughter such as Spike Milligan, John Cleese, Peter Cook and Billy Connolly all regularly visited The Late Late, providing some unforgettable TV moments, whilst the show itself became a launching pad for some of our own home grown stars with Tommy Tiernan (who could forget), Patrick Kielty, Dermot Morgan, Brendan O'Carroll, D'Unbelievables, Dylan Moran and Kevin McAleer all making early appearances on the show.
