‘Amazing Grace’ is a catchphrase often applied to Brendan Grace and indeed very true in many respects. The genial and much loved family comedian is celebrating 42 years in the comedy business and is now more popular than at any time in his career to date and what an illustrious career that has been.
Forty-two years ago when the then 20-year-old Dubliner set off on his solo career he could never have envisaged the road of life that lay ahead. Two years later a Geordie song called ‘Cushy Butterfield’ sailed to number one in the Irish charts and the rest is history.
Brendan’s latest show features some brand new material and some old favourites from his vast repertoire over the last 42 years. His sense of timing and ability to read an audience is without equal. A brilliant character actor, his Bottler character is legendary and is now featured at every performance.
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.
Brendan has a very special bond with Irish audiences and is much loved by young and old not least because he gives very generously of his time after each concert.
The meet and greet is now very much part and parcel of each show and Brendan’s very down-to-earth approach is much appreciated by all.
Brendan Grace performs at the Sheraton Hotel Athlone on Thursday August 22.
