A new comedy panel show starts tonight and it's rewriting mortifying moments in history

"Most of the stories are the usual stuff like wetting yourself at a party, or embarrassing yourself with some lad. A lot of it is around alcohol and sex basically."

Joanne McNally is back on our screens tonight in a brand new panel show on RTÉ2 that's all about telling embarrassing stories.

Joanne lives in London but spent Christmas at home in Dublin with her mom. "It was really nice, we drank loads of cosmopolitans and watched loads and loads of great movies and played loads of scrabble" she says.

Her new panel show Clear History is out tonight at 9:30 on RTÉ2. "It's not the traditional panel of like I always say, 10 men, one woman and Jimmy Carr. It's more like a conversation and storytelling," she says.

"Kevin McGahern is the host, I'm on one team Colin Murphy is the other captain and then we have guests on every week and we all just tell an embarrassing story."

The show also looks into "the archives of Ireland and the embarrassing stuff we've done in the past." She describes it as "a bit of scarlet-ness craic, like storytelling for perverse adults."

"Most of the stories are the usual stuff like wetting yourself at a party, or embarrassing yourself with some lad. A lot of it is around alcohol and sex basically."

If you follow Joanne on Instagram you will know she is one of the funniest people out there, so if you don't follow her, go follow her now.

She puts her humour and her brilliant stories down to being an open book. She says: "I've no boundaries, after a while as a comic you just get so used to sharing these very intimate things about yourself, that you just don't really care anymore."

Most of her material comes from her take on day to day life and observations. She also has some brilliant stories from dating in her 30s.

"I went back on the dating apps in London when they lifted the lockdown, it was the first thing I did because I need material, I'm dying out here," she jokes.

As for dating advice, she says: "Getting dating advice from me? Look at me! Get dating advice from someone who has successfully completed a relationship and if they have successfully completed a relationship they're dead."

"The only way to have a successful marriage is if one of you dies!"

Don't miss Clear History tonight at 9:30 on RTÉ2.
