Don’t know who Brendan Grace is? Have a read:

Amazing Grace, a catch phrase often applied to Brendan Grace and indeed very true in many respects. The genial and much loved Family Comedian is celebrating 40 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 years ago when the 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 No 1 in the Irish charts and the rest is history.

The spontaneous standing ovation that greeted Brendan when he walked on to the set of the Late Late TV Show for his recent well deserved tribute was a measure of the respect and effection there is for one of our best loved entertainers right across the island and indeed much further afield.

Brendan’s latest show features some brand new material and some ‘Old Favourites’ from his vast repertoire over the last 40  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.

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.
