Dusty Young – Irish Comedian and After-Dinner Speaker.
Dusty Young was born in Dublin because he wanted to be near his Mother, and like most Dublin people he was born a Catholic, which was quite a shock to his parents as they were both Jewish.
He lived in a small village outside of Dublin, the village was so small they only had three policeman but they have now doubled that to five.
Dusty Young comes from a very large family of ten and he doesn’t know if his father was a good catholic or a very sloppy protestant. His Father was a doctor and discovered a cure and there was no disease for it and he died from the cure.
His Brother is the ‘All Ireland Indoor Handgliding Champion’ and has just invented a new kind of parachute, it opens on impact.
Dusty got a blue at Oxford and if somebody had not nudged his elbow he would have gotten the pink and black as well.
Once a finalist in the ‘All Ireland Egg and Spoon Race’ he got disqualified for cheating, he glued the spoon on his hand.
Dusty Young started off as a big band musician in Ireland and is now one of the top Irish comedy speakers in the world. His humour is gentle and clean and typically Irish. He also has a nice singing voice and plays Trombone and Penny Whistle, but not at the same time.
Irish humour is the best in the World and is enjoyed by everybody, including the Irish. It is also a lot funnier when it comes from an Irishman! Dusty’s motto is: “not to take life to serious as we won’t get out of it alive anyway”
