Family comedian Brendan Grace who is celebrating 48 years in the Comedy business - most of those performing at the very top of his profession - is coming to Mayo with shows to take place in Ballina and Claremorris in January.
Grace'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, Grace's drawing power is enormous and the 'House Full' sign is the norm rather than the exception at his shows.
Now resident in the United States with his wife Eileen and family, Grace continues to enjoy international success brought about by his association with the late Frank Sinatra. He also 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 TV has received critical acclaim and had a huge audience.
