Nowhere Fast, a new six part comedy series for RTÉ2, is the brain child of stand-up comedian Alison Spittle. The show is a comedy about life in small town Ireland as seen from the perspective of the returning millennial.
Nowhere Fast is a comedy about women in rural Ireland, and one woman in particular. Fresh from a disaster in her media career in the big smoke, Angela (played by Alison) returns to her family home to lick her wounds and plan her next move. Can she escape the quicksand of small town Ireland and get her life back on track? And in the meantime can she keep her friends and family happy so she can get lifts?
I play MICK in the series, the boyfriend of Bríd (played by Genivieve Hulme-Beaman). Mick is a simple country man who likes his life as it is and wants to get married to the love of his life with no hassle or complications.
The show sees me reunited with former stage wife from the play 'Alone it Stands' Clare Monnelly and with former tv adversary in 'Red Rock' Cathy Belton.
The cast and crew were a joy to work with on this project and I think it's going to be very funny.
