Ensure that your Christmas season especially merry by treating to yourself to an evening of comedy with Brendan Grace. He’s performing in the Mount Errigal Hotel, Letterkenny on Monday, December 30 and at the Sligo Park Hotel on Tuesday, January 7.
Amazing Grace is a catchphrase often applied to Brendan Grace and indeed it’s 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 20-year-old Dubliner set off on his solo career, he could never have envisaged the life that lay ahead. Two years later, a Geordie song called Cushy Butterfield sailed to No. 1 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. Also,his famous ‘Father of the Bride’ parody is requested at every performance as is his hilarious take on the ‘Chinese Takeaway’
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.
Family comedians with the talent and graciousness of Brendan Grace are as rare as Haley’s Comet and only come around now and again.
He is certainly one in a million.
Performances start at 8pm. Tickets available from Ticketmaster, at the door on the night or from the hotels, Mount Errigal 074 912 2700, Sligo Park Hotel, 071 919 0400.
