Volume II of the exclusive behind-the-scenes diaries of one of Ireland’s most hard-working politicians …

Another hilarious account of local politics from Pat Shortt's legendary creation, the esteemed Councillor Maurice Hickey. The sequel to the popular I will in me Politics which was a runaway success – features a host of hilarious and recognisable characters.

Pat Shortt started in comedy when he left Art College. With Jon Kenny he created D’Unbelievables, Ireland’s most popular comedy duo. Together they performed their unique and critically acclaimed brand of comedy in theatres all over Ireland, Great Britain and The United States as well as various countries across Europe.

As a solo artist Pat’s first show was a sell-out. Pat’s work was hailed as comic genius by the Irish Times. An actor of note, Pat has appeared in many plays and films. Pat recently played the lead role of Josie in a movie called Garage which picked up the CICAE Art and Essai Cinema Prize at the Cannes Film Festival.

An accomplished musician Pat has recorded with many bands and toured extensively in the US with the brass section of The Saw Doctors. In 2006, he scored the big hit in Ireland with the song "The Jumbo Breakfast Roll" under the guise of showband singer Dicksie Walsh. The song was a number one hit in Ireland for six weeks with sales going 4 times platinum.

Pat's television credits include Tom the Character in Father Ted, (Channel 4) and Bobby in The Fitz (BBC). Pat can currently be seen in the popular television series Killinascully. The successful series features Pat in a variety of roles and was created by him for RTÉ.

Maurice Hickey is from the stable of the D’Unbelievables by way of Kilnaskully and that brand of very popular humour characterizes this book. The perfect present for the politician in your life.
