was a fast-paced 2012 radio sitcom written by & starring Jason Byrne as a disastrous house husband.
The series grew out of Dublin-born Byrne’s stand-up comedy as Byrne himself revealed the characters are all based on real-life people & “outrageous situations” he has found himself in as a “stay-at-home” Dad.
Byrne is known for improvisation & his typically unscripted live shows, making this series a rare foray into the comedian’s scripted comedy writing talents.

Playing Tom’s Long-suffering “old-school” Irish parents are Lucy Montgomery & Dermot Crowley as Elaine & Pat.
Rounding out the family is a serious 16-year-old son, (Dylan) played by Dominic Applewhite.
Domestic situations unravel all around Tom Whyte with the unsolicited assistance of the family friend & barman, “Roddy” (played by Michael Smiley) who turns up at the oddest of times!
