It will be a bit of a surreal moment for fans of Irish chat shows tonight (or the haters... it's all the same) as former Saturday Night Show host and Tubridy rival Brendan O'Connor will join Ryan on the show. The fact that we are actually looking forward to this surreal interview worries us greatly. We're cool. Swear.

Beside that MADNESS, Ryan will be chatting to current Labour deputy leader Alan Kelly to see if he's going to take a shot at the title now that party leadership is up for grabs, while comedian Jason Byrne will also be in to provide a few laughs - although we feel like that fella is on every second week at this stage.

Also on the show, 'Once the Musical’ star Phelim Drew will be in to talk about his return to the Dublin stage and share memories of his father, the late, great Ronnie Drew.

Ryan be checking in with those that took part in the revived Late Late Show Antiques segment to see the fruits of their labour, and finally there will be music from The Undertones, with their seminal hit ‘Teenage Kicks’, and fresh from their world tour, The High Kings.
