Chris O’Dowd shocked by red chair story on Graham Norton show
Irish actor Chris O’Dowd was given a shock during the red chair stories on Graham Norton’s show.
The storyteller had a comical tale from his childhood that featured the Moone Boy star as the main character.
O’Dowd was left red-faced by the story, but did see the funny side.
He was on the show to talk about his new film The Program, which tells the story of disgraced drug cheat cyclist Lance Armstrong.
He was on the couch with fellow Irish actor Colin Farrell, English comedian Dawn French, English actor Rachel Weisz and rock legend Rod Stewart.
All was going well for O’Dowd until the end of the show and the red chair storied feature.
Norton always invites members of his audience to sit in the ‘red chair’ and tell a funny story to the guests. If the story is considered funny enough, they are allowed to walk, if not, they get flipped.
This particular red chair story was told by a man called John. After recognising John’s Irish accent, Norton asked him where in the country he was from, he remained coy and simply replied from ‘the west’.
He went on to tell his comical story from his childhood, which ended with O’Dowd being named as the main protagonist.
