Comic Comes Out: “I’m Not a Homophobe, I’m Gay”
After being accused of making homophobic jokes, Irish comic Oliver Callan came out as gay while being interviewed on live television.
Callan, well-known in Ireland and the U.K. for skewering celebrities and politicians on radio, appeared on The Saturday Night Show, after generating controversy over comments he made about football star-fashion icon Paul Galvin, which many people considered homophobic. Audiences were likely expecting the comedian to defend his routines, but he had a surprise in store.
