He starred in the CBBC series Roy, was winner of Ireland's Celebrity Come Dine With Me, got a five star review in the theatre version of The Shawshank Redemption along with Omid Djalili, recorded a single ‘The Rockier Road To Poland’ with Shane MacGowan, and performed a five week run in the Gaiety in John B Keane’s The Chastitute.
