Belfast funnyman Frank Carson blazed a comedy trail for over fifty years.

His quick-fire gags and infectious laugh delighted audiences on variety shows on telly and in clubs across the land – The Comedians , The Good Old Days, Seaside Special, Royal Variety, Noel’s Houseparty, Tiswas, and many more. In 1976 alone, he did forty-one network TV shows. He was Mayor of Balbriggan [twice], King of Blackpool, Clown Prince of Ireland and Prime Minister of Fun. But there’s more! In this acclaimed one-man show, written and performed by Dan Gordon, we journey with Frank from his Belfast boyhood – where life was so tough even the arms on the chairs had tattoos – through his adventures in the army, and into the world of showbiz where he entertained Royalty, delighted Pope John Paul II and never forgot where he came from.

A whirlwind comedy drama celebrating the man, the myth and the mouth – it’s a cracker!
