Comedian Shane Todd has enlisted the help - albeit somewhat manufactured - of Jamie Dornan, Rory McIlroy and Liam Neeson to spread the word on his biggest ever solo show in Belfast.

On October 28 the Northern Ireland man will play, Shane Todd: Sick Bro, in Belfast's Mandela Hall at Queen's University.

And among those "plugging" the show, in a carefully edited video montage, were his fellow Holywood stars along with the likes of Gary Lightbody, Carl Frampton, Graeme McDowell, Barry McGuigan and Darren Clarke.

Shane is well-known for his stand-up comedy as well as the characters he plays - namely the ever popular Mike McGoldrick who is a self-confessed ‘Ulster Rugby legend' with friends in high places.

In his guise as Mike, he has previously interviewed Major winning golfer Rory McIlroy, broadcast journalist Eamonn Holmes and the Ulster Rugby team.

Over the summer the comic played the Edinburgh Fringe Festival as himself and in addition to the Belfast gig he will also play the Museum of Comedy in London on October 23.
