He has entertained five American Presidents and was described by the late Princess of Monaco as one of the jewels of the Emerald Isle. He has been honoured by the Irish Government for his contribution to Irish tourism. His brand of humour has such a strong connection to the 40 million Americans who claim Irish ancestry, that the Presidential Office requested his albums and books for the Archives of the Smithsonian Institute in Washington.
Hal Roach's jokes nearly always point out double entendres or plays on words. Actually, he paints pictures of Ireland with words and each one is a miniature masterpiece. "I try to bring people a sense of nostalgia in my work. Humour is an integral part of our nation's culture. We must be able to laugh at ourselves, but if you have to debase your culture in any way, that's not humour. I do not tell off-colour jokes. I do not relate to people who do. Humour is a God-given gift and should be respected.
Comedians and humourists have a terrible responsibility not to debase it. We cannot leave a legacy of salacious humour to the young people of the next generation. Love and laughter are very close emotions. You can learn so much from a child's sense of humour. It prepares them for life, sharpens their imagination and is absolutely necessary for their well- being. I want entire families to be able to come to my shows; also I include priests, nuns and all religious as my fans."
