This episode of Travel WITH Stephanie Abrams is devoted to an historic interview with Malachy McCourt, author of nine books including NYTimes Best Seller, “A Monk Swimming,” actor/playwright/humorist/film actor/TV actor/radio show host/Green Party nominee for NY State Governor, whose early life is also memorialized in Frank McCourt’s Pulitzer Prize winning memoir, Angela’s Ashes, nominated for a number of Oscar and BAFTA awards, plus other both national and international recognitions, including best acting awards and Best Musical Score composed by John Williams. Malachy played Father Clarence on the daytime dramas, “All My Children,” and the bartender on, “Ryan’s Hope,” and owned the well-known and well-visited NYC Third Avenue pub, Malachy’s.
Stephanie Abrams’ leprechaun friend, Malachy McCourt talks with Stephanie about his life, his travels, his humorous approach to negotiating his way through life and the wisdom that comes along with his 91 years on the planet. While Malachy is soldiering on fighting a rare and inconvenient illness, he is working on his 9th book, a clear statement that he’s ‘not done yet.’ Now at home high atop his Manhattan apartment’s building, where he is convinced he has been sent back to by the hospice he was recently discharged from for, in his own words “not dying fast enough,” Malachy’s lively banter will reaffirm his proclamation that, “I’m not dead yet!” Stephanie’s conclusion is that he never will be.
