'There's 50,000 marriages in this country wouldn't have happened without Coppers'

Paul Howard talked about why he’s writing Coppers: The Musical.

PAUL HOWARD HAS confirmed that he is writing a musical about Copper Face Jacks, and talked about the reasons behind it.

It was reported last week that Coppers: The Musical could be on the cards, with Howard (aka Ross O’Carroll Kelly) on board as writer.

However, the man himself stayed quiet on the project until appearing on the Saturday Night Show last night with Love/Hate actor Laurence Kinlan.

Asked about the musical, Howard confirmed that he’s involved in the project, which is being masterminded by Anglo: The Musical creator Darren Smith.

But we won’t be seeing it for a while – it’s “early days”, Howard said. He explained that he liked Coppers because it’s easy to get in.

I have never needed any encouragement to go to Copper Face Jacks. It’s a great nightclub. And during the years of the Celtic Tiger, when it was difficult to get into the nightclubs that I was satirising, it was always easier to get into Coppers.

Howard also suggested that Coppers was important to the nation of Ireland as a whole.

There’s probably 50,000 marriages in this country wouldn’t have happened if it wasn’t for Copper Face Jacks.

Amazing.

To test Howard’s theory about the importance of Coppers to Irish culture, we’ve trawled through everyone that tweeted about going to Coppers last night. Here is a representative sample:

And this charmer:

Wedding bells, eh?
