Why do these celebrities who go on the show who do you think you are always seem to have Irish heritage?

Because large numbers of people came to the US from Ireland, especially during and after the Potato Famine. Because the Irish are traditionally Catholic and did not use birth control even after it was widely available, so they had lots of children. Because many people consider the Irish an attractive group overall, so the Irish Americans married and had lots of kids themselves.

The wit of the Irish, a sort of quick witty way of saying things, makes them born entertainers. It's something they grew up with. It's in their cultural environment.
