Michael Smiley (Live at the Museum of Comedy, London): Episode 88


Michael Smiley makes a welcomed return appearance to An Irishman Abroad in front of a live audience to discuss his upcoming film Lobster in which he stars alongside Colin Farrell, why he avoids thinking about working with Martin Scorsese, his history with drugs and alcohol as well as revisiting how he wound up homeless in London with his newborn son.


Michael uses his incredible turn of phrase to talk about how growing up a minority in a majority area taught him to stand his ground, how he has taken time to believe in himself, rebuilding his fragile relationship with his father and what it means to be an actor.
