The greatest family comedian of our generation, Brendan Grace, proudly celebrates 48 years in the entertainment industry and most of this time has been spent at the very top of his profession.
Brendan's latest show features the best and most requested pieces from his vast repertoire over the last 48 years. His sense of timing and ability to read an audience is without equal. A brilliant character actor, his 'Bottler' character is legendary and his interpretation of the 'Irish Wedding' will forever remain a masterpiece.
Apart from his obvious 'star quality' in all aspects of his performance, Brendan's drawing power is enormous and the 'house full' sign is the norm rather than the exception at his concerts. Although Brendan now resides in the United States with his wife Eileen and family and enjoys international success brought about by his association with the late Frank Sinatra, he still tours Ireland on a regular basis, and indeed still considers Ireland his first love.
His 'meet and greet' after each show is one of the highlights of the night. His recent documentary 'Funnyman' on RTE 1 television has received critical acclaim.
'Funnyman' will play at the Radisson Blu Hotel on Thursday, January 17 and can be purchased by calling (090 )6442600.
Prior to his Athlone date, the Tullamore Court Hotel will host 'Funnyman' on Wednesday, January 2. Tickets are available by calling 057-9346666.
Tickets for both events are €30 and can also be purchased on ticketmaster.ie
