Frank Carson – A Rebel Without a Pause

13:40, 03 - 27 Aug

Funnyman Frank Carson blazed a comedy trail for 50 years. His quick-fire gags and infectious laugh delighted audiences in variety shows in clubs and on telly. His catchphrase: 'It's the way I tell 'em! His mantra: 'That's a cracker!' But, there’s more. From his Belfast boyhood where life was so tough even the arms on the chairs had tattoos, through his adventures in the army where he couldn’t be seen in camouflage training. He entertained Royalty and delighted Pope John Paul II. Dan Gordon celebrates the man, the myth and the mouth.
