Comedian & Actor Tara Flynn to Voice TV3's 'Blind Date'
12 Jul 2017 : Katie McNeice
The new dating show hosted by Al Porter is set to hit the small screen this Autumn.

Flynn will join the show as Al Porter’s sidekick, recapping on the singletons and what they said as the narrator of the show.

Tara Flynn has worked extensively as an actor and comedian in theatre, radio and TV in Ireland and the UK. She came to international acclaim in 2013 for her satirical video Racist B&B, for which she was named Satirist of the Year at the Swift Satire Festival.

She was a founding-member of comedy singing trio The Nualas and she has performed as a stand-up comedian all over Ireland & Britain and at festivals including Edinburgh Fringe and Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Tara Flynn:
“I am so delighted about being the famous sidekick in Blind Date, I have very fond memories of my Saturday nights in front of the TV watching the legendary Cilla having a lorra lorra laughs! Myself and Al Porter are going to have so much fun on such an iconic show."
