However armed with the stupidity & ambition to be a comedian, Michael has come a long way since that painful winters night! A finalist in "Show Me The Funny" 2012 (Galway) his journey into the unknown has seen him perform all over the UK, Ireland & Europe.

After a very successful run at last years Edinburgh fringe Michael performed two shows everyday 'The Good, The Bad & The Irish' & his solo 'Love & Brain Damage'. Both shows got **** star reviews from 3 Weeks & Broadway Baby.

"Rooney's pastiches of The Dubliners songbook reveal a mischievous insight beyond the rebel-without-a-brain-cell of his on-screen counterpart. He is an engaging host and maintains the love-in mood of the show"
- Chortle

"I'm still laughing at the thought of Fr. Damien (Damo) Lennon, the gurrier curate who lead Fr. Dougal astray
He was an inspired invention and was brilliantly played by Joe"
- John Boland Sunday Independent

"occasionally laconic, at times infectiously manic, and always rivetting – coupled with his years of experience have made him one of Ireland’s “10 Most Wanted”, when promoters nationwide pick up their phones"
- The Hot Press
