About Jon Kenny

Jon Kenny (born 1957 and grew up in the town of Hospital, County Limerick, Ireland) lives in Lough Gur and is one half of the famous Irish comic duo d'Unbelievables with Pat Shortt). They were a very successful duo until 2000, releasing One Hell of a Video, D'Unbelievables, D'Video, D'Telly, D'Mother and D'collection but the group stopped touring after Kenny was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma. He has since made a successful recovery and still performs shows across Ireland. Kenny is best known outside Ireland for appearing in the Channel 4 sitcom Father Ted (as Michael the cinema owner in 'The Passion of St Tibulus' and as presenter Fred Rickwood in 'Song For Europe'). Kenny is an accomplished singer and supporter of Munster Rugby.
