WATCH: Irish comedian ‘Black Paddy’ takes on Portlaoise in viral video

Portlaoise has become the latest town to be visited by a comedian who gives his own unique take on what life is like in different parts of the country.

‘Black Paddy’, real name Fabu-D, visited Laois recently and took a trip around Portlaoise where he visited building like Laois County Council, the Court House, Laois Shopping Centre, the prisons and various churches.

He thoroughly enjoyed the People’s Park but bemoaned the fact we don’t have a KFC.

In his video, which has amassed more than 60,000 views on Facebook, he describes people from Portlaoise as ‘really friendly, they are amazing and just happy 24/7’.

He also has a number of humorous encounters with locals – including being brought for a ride on a horse.

He said: “I love Portlaoise, this is the only county you can come to in Ireland and get a free ride on a horse!”

Fabu-D became a comedian after graduating from university and has since MCed at over 150 events.

Originally from Nigeria, he makes viral videos about the experience of African people in Ireland which have been featured by the Lad Bible, Worldstar Hip-Hop, and Unilad.

In 2017, he was a contestant on the reality TV show ‘Blind Date Ireland.’
