Ginnity, Noel V
Half-length portrait of Irish comedian Noel V Ginnity, on stage at Dublin's Olympia Theatre, in July 1973. He is wearing a check jacket and a cap with horns on it. He is leaning forward with one arm outstretched and is looking upwards.
RTE Television recorded Ginnity's performance, and the performances of five other Irish comedians, for broadcast in a four-part series entitled 'Jokin' Apart'. Each of the six comics prepared a fifteen or twenty minute spot which was then edited in the RTE studios. The first programme in the series was broadcast on 8 May 1974. Adrian Cronin, RTE's then Head of Light Entertainment, was the series producer; he wrote an article about it for the RTE Guide of 3 May 1974.
