Belfast funny man 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 on-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 adventure 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!
