King Larry Long Ears

King Larry Lonshach, a man hiding a terrible secret beneath his crown. Aisling Bea and Yasmine Akram bring some of Ireland's most popular folklore to life. From February 2015.

Aisling Bea (British Comedy Award Winner 2014) and Yasmine Akram (Sherlock) return with a second series, offering their unique take on Ireland's ancient stories.

Irish Micks and Legends is comedic, highly irreverent storytelling of ancient Irish folklore. Still the very best pals, Aisling and Yasmine take their role explaining Irish legends to the British nation very seriously indeed. That said, it would appear that they haven't had the time to do much research, work out who is doing which parts, edit out the chat or learn how to work the sound desk.

With a vast vault of fantastical myths, mixed with 21st century references to help you along, prepare for some very silly lessons in life, love and the crazy shenanigans of old Ireland and modern Irish. The first series was a Chortle Best Radio Comedy Nominee 2013.

Episode Two: King Larry Long Ears.
Aisling and Yasmine tell the tale of King Larry Lonshach, a man hiding a terrible, gag inducing secret beneath his crown. Only his hairdressers ever find out the secret - but that knowledge doesn't end well for them.

Producer: Raymond Lau
A Green Dragon Media production for BBC Radio 4.
