On The Republic of Telly, RTE plan do more than just look back at what's happened in TV, pop culture and current events... Presenter and comedian Neil Delamere will be making unusual guest appearances in some of our favourite shows, whether that's getting diagnosed on The Clinic, or auditioning to become a pop star. He will 'explode' political stories, quite literally, send reporters out on the streets to ask some of the strangest questions you'll ever hear, and remake the latest Hollywood blockbuster with an Irish twist. One could say, it's Harry Hill's TV Burp, but with an Irish twist. No pressure, Delamere... Neil isn't the only comedy sort who's landed their own TV show - someone's Karl Spain another show. It's called Karl Spain Wants to Rock (10.30pm) and it involves the talents of Ireland's many tribute bands, such as Ireland Maiden and Metallitia.
