Grace giggles

You can’t beat the old Irish wedding. ”Blessed is he who gets married in the nick of time”, the verdict from the sanctimonious priest at the wedding. Then, the father of the bride makes a memorable speech. ”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” and then there’s the schoolboy with the unspeakable personal habits and a fine line in sympathy please! Brendan Grace is all of these and more. Each portrait has a ring of truth that brings audiences to the point of apoplexy. His material owes more to the best of the traditional stand-up-comics than it does to modern alternative humour and his show is very much a show for all the family. Fans also get a chance to meet Brendan after each show for a photo opportunity at the ‘meet and greet’. Brendan Grace appears at Roscommon Arts Centre on Saturday 28th April.
