RTE’s hilarious sketch show, Irish Pictorial Weekly, returns to television screens this weekend for a brand new series!

Spewed from the minds and mouths of the best that Irish comedy has to offer — including Barry Murphy, Alan Shortt and Tara Flynn, to name but a few — the series sees the return of familiar characters like Enda Kenny, Michael Noonan, and Gerry Adams, as well as a sumptuous slew of new comedic creations and caricatures.

Produced by Hugh Ormond and Directed by Maurice Linnane, full post production on the new series is once again taking place here at Screen Scene, where elfin featured walker of the woods, Martha Meyler, is editing up a storm, and the devastatingly svelte Warren Dowling is onlining like a true hero of men. “Marky” Mark Fitzpatrick and Emma “Cheekbones” Butt are handling the sound mix, while saucer eyed bowl of hard working loveliness, Elish Sheridan, is supervising post.

Prep your gut for busting and your knees for slapping when episode one of the new series airs Sunday 22nd of March at 9.30pmĀ on RTE ONE.
