It’s Will Ferrell’s birthday, so here are his best bits…

Robert Goulet, Ron Burgundy, more cowbell and a house party in Longford. It’s all here.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO you, happy birthday to you, happy birthday dear Wii-iilll… happy birthday to  you.

From being afraid of Roy Keane to singing Westlife songs at UCD to being San Diego’s best anchorman ever, here’s a tribute to some of Will Ferrell’s best comedy moments.

(Apologies in advance for the lack of emphasis on Elf, Zoolander, Old School and his many many admirable Saturday Night Live sketches. They’re here in spirit.)

Back in 2008 Ferrell, along with his father and brother went on a two-week two of Ireland, researching their Irish roots. Surely the highlight of Ferrell’s trip was ending up at a house party in Longford at 3am?
