Ahead of the first episode of his new RTÉ One series The Keith Barry Experience next Wednesday night, the man himself will be indulging in magic and mischief with the Late Late audience - tune in from 9:35pm on RTÉ One on Friday. Speaking to RTÉ Entertainment at the recent launch of RTÉ's new autumn schedule, Ryan Tubridy reflected on returning to The Late Late Show for his 11th season as host. He said it is humbling and "nice" to be the second longest-running presenter of the show and joked how it is a record that probably only matters to him and "possibly my mother". The 46-year-old presenter, who succeeded Pat Kenny as host of the long-running TV chat programme in 2009, will officially break the record with the first Late Late Show of the new season on Friday night. "I think if I get to midnight on the first show back that makes me the second longest-running presenter of The Late Late Show, which is a record that matters to probably no one else but me, and possibly my mother," said Tubridy.
