The Hut Near The Bog


Owen Colgan, the philosophy of a Hardy Buck

Season 1, Ep. 15

Owen Colgan is the Irish cult comedy hero, best known for his role as Buzz McDonnell in Hardy Bucks. 

In this episode I sit down with Owen to get to know the man behind the comedy. Owen starts off by telling us how growing up in the West of Ireland shaped his comedy. We then explore the differences between the rural and urban senses of humour; and the role comedy plays in helping us to understand the absurdity of life. We also discuss why being humble is so important for having a healthy and balanced outlook and the uncertainty that comes with the life of being a creative. In the final part, Owen shares his wisdom and recommends that we try to get out into nature as much as possible.
