Local celebrity comedian Big O is to do a comedy set at the inauguration of Donald Trump on Friday we have learned.
The Warrenpoint man known for his quick wit and terrible music taste spoke about his pride in being invited to the massive occasion:
“Yeooo, what a great honour to be invited to America for President Trump’s inauguration. I have no clue why they asked me, maybe because I’m a bit edgy, on the fringe of reality and socially awkward just like Trump but either way I’m looking forward to it. Yeeoooo!”
A US State Department spokesman confirmed Big O’s booking and told us:
“We have been turned down by everyone, no known comic on the plant of earth would attend so when we heard about Mr McMahon from Warrenpoint, we asked and he accepted as he would go to the opening of a letter for a small fee.”
