In the tradition of true Irish storytelling, McCann’s Shorts takes you by the hand and leads you on a nostalgic, often hilarious and sometimes tragic journey of one man through the second half of the 20th Century. Mother meets father in war-torn Belfast. Boys will be boys in small-town Ontario in the ’50s. Near misses and perfect endings. The foreshadowing—and numbing experience—of loss. This collection delivers them all, in an original and authentic voice informed by memory and a thousand verbal retellings.

I recorded and posted these videos on YouTube while writing McCann’s Shorts. They're an interesting ‘one man show.’
