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

His quick-fire gags and infectious laugh delighted audiences in 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 75-minute whirlwind comedy drama celebrating the man, the myth and the mouth - it’s a cracker!
