It’s a comedy with a real message and real heart: Comic Michael Patrick on inspiration of late dad and his next project

When Belfast man Michael Patrick found himself with a swollen testicle as a teenager, he did what any embarrassed 15-year-old schoolboy would do and initially kept it as a secret.

ittle did he know then, but 15 years on he would be sharing his experiences in a hit play – My Left Nut – which was then made into a BBC Three TV series and broadcast earlier this year.

It’s been a whirlwind success story for Michael and co-writer friend Oisin Kearney, who wrote it in 2017 and took it to the Edinburgh festival a year later.
