Happy Paddy’s Day from Father Jack
Link to a larger version.
Okay, this isn’t a comic BOOK character, but it is an Irish-centric comic character …from a sitcom. Father Jack Hackett from the absolutely fantastic comedy series Father Ted.
This series wouldn’t be well known to anyone outside Ireland or the UK but it is without a doubt the best thing to come out of Ireland, and i include myself in that. No point in ranting on about it, but i will link to a couple of clips, just cuz i think it’s so feckin’ great. Here’s a short clip as a taste and a slightly longer scene (filmed in my home town!). I sure know how i’m celebrating today; watching some classic Ted episodes… and maybe havin’ a couple o’ pints o’ cider.
