IRELAND'S favourite funnyman, Brendan Grace, makes a welcome return to Galway in 2017, when he brings his It's A Funny Old World show to Salthill and Ballinasloe in January.
Over the years, Brendan Grace has created many memorable characters, such as the sanctimonious priest who knows more than he's telling: "Blessed is he who gets married in the nick of time"; the father of the bride speaking at his daughters wedding: "She could have married someone with money. She could have married someone who was working. She could have married someone who wasn't working...but was willing to work.''
Brendan's material owes more to traditional stand-up than to modern alternative humour and his show is very much a family show. The shows take place in the Salthill Hotel, Galway city, on Sunday January 8 and in the Shearwater Hotel, Ballinasloe on Wednesday January 11.
