Colin Mochrie spent seven years as a regular on Whose Line Is It Anyway? and remained a cast member until the show’s end in 1998.

After the British version of the show ended its run, Mochrie joined the American version of Whose Line hosted by Drew Carey on ABC. Mochrie appeared on every episode from its debut in August 1998 to its finale in 2006.

Since 2002, Mochrie and Brad Sherwood have intermittently toured North America as a two-man stage show called “An Evening with Colin and Brad,” playing primarily in small theatre venues. A DVD of their performances, “Colin & Brad: Two Man Group” was released on March 8, 2011. I met up with Colin at the Galway Vodafone Comedy Carnival just after his show with The Steve Frost Improv Allstars and before his show with Brad Sherwood.

Singer, songwriter, activist, artist—Music as a means of healing is an idea that permeates and informs most of Emily Cavanagh’s life. A working musician in New York City, Cavanagh has recorded three records to date and played with some of the city’s finest musicians.

Cavanagh, a graduate of New York University, has spent nearly ten years combining two passions-music and service, traveling and playing music, while helping underserved and homeless young adults find their voice through the arts.

I saw her perform in Whelan’s and met up for a chat with her in The Central Hotel in Dublin where we were almost removed for being a fire hazard mid chat.
