Every guest on this week’s Late Late Show is excellent

You won't want to miss this one.

Laura Holland

One of the best line-ups in a long time.

The Late Late Show has managed to knock it out of the park this week with an incredible line-up. Not only had it got some of the biggest names in Hollywood, it also has fantastic homegrown talent as well.

It’s the first time in a long time that we want to see every single guest on the show.

Kicking it off, Ryan will be joined by the stars of Daddy’s Home 2, Will Ferrell, Mark Wahlberg, John Lithgow and Mel Gibson. They’re in town to promote the movie, which is hilarious, and delighted fans when they attended a huge premiere in the Odeon at the Point Village on Wednesday night.

They popped into studio earlier in the week for a pre-recorded interview that will be shown during Friday night’s show. We’re told Mel will chat about his friendship with President Michael D Higgins, filming Braveheart in Ireland and his strong ties to Longford. Which prompts Will, who also has ties to Longford, to engage in a “Longford-off” with Gibson.

Also stopping by will be comedian Peter Kay, who has just announced four Irish shows as part of his stand-up tour. He will be chatting about everything from being one of the world’s most successful comedians to his love for Bolton and his Irish roots.

Musical legend Christy Moore will be on the show to sing some of his favourite songs and to chat about his amazing career and the inspiration behind some of the most beloved songs in Irish music.

Actor James Nesbitt will also be on the show this Friday, and last but certainly not least, one of our favourite female comedians Alison Spittle.

Her brand new comedy show, Nowhere Fast, started on RTÉ 2 this week, so Alison will join Ryan to discuss its success to date.

Finally, music on the night will be from Ham Sandwich.
