Irish Comedian Says He Rejected A Russian TV Deal Over A Gay Character

Irish comedian and actor Brendan O’Carroll plays Mrs. Doubtfire/Madea-esque character Mrs Agnes Brown in the hit comedy Mrs Brown’s Boys.

The comedian has found great success with the role and intellectual property. Mrs Brown’s Boys first started off as a radio show in 1992 before becoming a series of books and then turning into both a sitcom and a stage show.

But when a Russian production company came calling about the possibility of a Russian version of the show, O’Carroll found an issue with one of their demands.

“They didn’t want any gay [content], in Russia in particular,” O’Carroll said during an interview with RTE.

“It would have been a nice little deal. It’s a big country and so the fee you’d charge for the licensing is audience-related, so it’s a big audience and it would have been a nice fee.

“But [they said] no gay, absolutely no gay. So I said no gay, no show. And that was it.”

But it seems is wasn’t just Russia who wasn’t ok with this gay character.

“Romania threatened [to cut the gay character out], but then went ahead with it,” he explained.

“What they’ve done is, the Rory character is the Rory character and he’s still gay, but they never mention that he’s gay. But it’s still Rory.”

That said, unfortunately the original Rory can’t be found on television as well.

Rory Cowan who’s openly gay and originally played Rory Brown, Mrs Brown’s third son, announced earlier this year that he would be leaving the show and the role.

“I feel that 26 years is enough so I decided it was time to go. I told Brendan on June 16 about my decision to leave.

“That’s when I handed in my notice.”

Gay Comic Solomon Georgio Is Sharing Hilarious Grindr Hookup Stories

Comedian Solomon Georgio is sharing tea about his hilarious gay sex stories in his newly released comedy album Homonegro Superior.

Georgio has a natural ability to share honest moments of his life that can seem extreme or unreal to some and make them not only relatable but hilarious.

He shares his experiences of growing up gay to “very religious, very uptight” African immigrants, his encounter with a man who wanted to be fisted, and the many times he’s been asked if he has a “big chocolate dick” on Grindr.

Before appearing on Conan, Georgio spoke to Vice about some of his more sexual experiences.

"One guy made me aggressively pinch his nipples the whole time, from the word 'go.' Just aggressively, like wearing-out-my-fist style. It was like latching onto a climbing wall, and he was very insistent. You don't know what pinching is until you're five minutes in and like, "OK, I'm tired now."

Another story he shared involved some rough play.

“Someone I hooked up with wanted to have sex in public, and I was like, 'I have a roof—let's do it up there.' But it was an angled roof, and the sort of thing where you can stand on it fine, but when you're about to orgasm, you kind of lose your footing. We almost slid 15 feet. I wasn't sober, by the way. I was a pretty drunk person, on a roof, trying to have sex. So the fact I'm alive [is impressive]. And I never finished. Something about almost dying was just a major turnoff.”

In addition, Comedy Central has shared some audio of Georgio's upcoming album where he shares even more stories.

Joel Kim Booster's Journey From Closeted Gay Adoptee To A Up-And-Coming Comedian Will Brighten Your Day

Meet Joel Kim Booster, a young comedian who’s rising to fame quickly and can even be found on your tv screens this very instant.

Booster just hosted his first Comedy Central stand-up special this weekend and has an album coming out on November 3rd titled Model Minority.

And if you’re thinking, “Where’d this guy come from?” or “Have I seen him before?” You’d be (pleasantly) surprised to know he’s been hustling to get to this point.

Booster has appeared on Conan, he’s written for Billy on the Street, and he even has a development deal for a show.

Now, Joel Kim Booster is enjoying the rewards of his work by getting more spotlight then he ever has before, and he attributes the start of it all to his mixed upbringing.

You see, Booster started out being adopted into a white Evangelical family which made growing up gay and Asian a confusing time.

Booster grew up in Plainfield, Illinois, was homeschooled, and participated in Christian youth groups.

“As you can imagine, it was a little weird growing up in the Midwest with this face and that family,” he told Splitsider. “I literally knew I was gay before I knew I was Asian.”

 

We spotted each other across the crowd and then I forgot his Instagram handle. We could've had it all.

It wasn’t until he was 17 that his parents discovered his sexuality.

“They read my journal when I was 17,” he reveals in the special. “At that time, my journal wasn’t an introspective thoughts-and-dreams journal. It was more of a Buzzfeed listicle of guys dicks I was sucking.” (That’s a book we wouldn’t mind reading).

While his parent’s didn’t kick him out, Booster ended up having to leave and sleep on friends’ couches.

Eventually, Booster went through college (with the help of his best friend’s family) and later reconnected with his family.

Then, six and a half years ago Booster started doing comedy in Chicago before eventually moving to New York in 2014. He decided to give himself four years to “make it” and found out it only took him two.

That’s when he debuted on Conan and in the same year he sold Birthright to Fox (which will be tv show about a gay Korean adoptee living with white evangelical Christian parents). Sadly, Fox stopped development of the show, but luckily it was picked up by a “to be announced” network.

The on top of that, he’s gearing up for the release of his album Model Minority to boot.

To attribute to his success, Joel Kim Booster says its about being real and open about the world he lives in.

“If you have a strong enough point of view or comedic voice, you're able to just explain to someone that your parents didn't talk to you for a year and a half. Everything is comedy and it's just a matter of taking a step back and disassociating for a moment.”
