Here's 16-year-old Ryan Tubridy on RTE's Scratch Saturday in 1989

He really hasn't changed a bit.

Before he made it onto 'The Late Late Show', 'Tubridy Tonight' or even onto the radio waves, Ryan Tubridy was popped up on TV back in 1989 at the age of 16, reviewing U2 books with Andy Ruane for RTÉ's 'Scratch Saturday'.

RTÉ shared the footage from their 'Before Fame' archives today and it's both a thrill and a hilarious delight to see how different but even more so how similar 42-year-old Tubs is to his 16-year-old self.


Unfortunately you can't embed the RTÉ Player so if you want to watch the clip you can see it here, or watch it on YouTube below.

We wonder if Bono knows how he feels about his band?
