TG4’s ‘Molscéal’ will feature brand new comedy sketches as Gaeilge with Cork’s CCCahoots. CCCahoots are a Cork Based Irish TV and film production company specialising in comedy, whose work prioritises warm natural performances; a cinematic, often colourful look; and most importantly, widespread ‘soundness’ on set! They have proven hugely popular on facebook with characters such as Peig, Siún Nic Giolla Phádraig, Ann & Barry and many more.
Now they have brought their talents to TG4, and have produced 5 short-form video sketches as Gaeilge which will be shared across ‘Molscéal’ TG4’s online video platform which is available on facebook, twitter, instagram as well as an app which is free to download in the app store or google playstore.
CCCahoots are working on new scripts and pitches for TV and film on an ongoing basis. They also regularly release comedy sketches across their multiple social media platforms. The three performers also perform individually; Tadhg Hickey is about to embark on a tour of his first solo show ‘In One Eye, Out The Other’; Laura has a big show ‘The people’s princess’ coming up in The Everyman, Cork in March and Dominic is of course very well known for his role as Sergant Healy in the hit series ‘The Young Offenders’.
Molscéal was established by TG4 in 2017 to provide entertaining Irish Language content to an Irish speaking audience on devices other than television. Molscéal has proven to be hugely popular with the audience and has attracted 4 million video views to date. The sketches collaboration with CCCahoots are a new departure for Molscéal and one that will appeal to viewers.
Watch the first sketch this Sunday night at 9:15pm on Molscéal on facebook: https://www.
