Your Bad Self is an Irish sketch comedy show which was originally broadcast on RTÉ Two on 26 December 2008 at 21:40 before being developed into a series which was shown in 2010.


Your Bad Self stars Domhnall Gleeson as well as Michael McElhatton, Justine Mitchell and Peter McDonald.[1] The show was produced by Ben Kelly for Treasure Entertainment (I Went Down and Mad About Dog) and was co-written by Kelly, the director John Butler, Eoin Williams, Justine Mitchell and Emily Fairman. Butler was the co-writer and director of George and Spacemen Three for the Irish Film Board.[2]

In June 2009, RTÉ commissioned a six-part series of Your Bad Self.[3] The series was to be filmed towards the end of 2009 and broadcast early in 2010.[citation needed]


John Boland of the Irish Independent sat through it in "stony silence".[4]
