Chris O’Dowd is the co-creator and sometimes co-writer of the nostalgic Irish sitcom Moone Boy, and also appears as the adult imaginary friend of the lead character, twelve year old Martin. He’s kinda sorta his projected adult self. A bit. You’ll get some idea of how it works from this trailer.
Everybody Hates Chris O’Dowd with a bit of Drop Dead Chris. Not quite. But O’Dowd is an effortlessly charming performer and David Rawle, who plays Martin, is likeable too.
Moone Boy is back on Sky soon – Monday February 17th. I got that wrong to start with, sorry.
Or, if you’re like me and don’t have Sky, it will be joining the first series DVD in just a few weeks.
