It’s a Cracker – Tribute To Frank Carson

Tribute to Belfast Funny Man Frank Carson–It’s A Cracker.

Come see the Frank Carson tribute in the Down Arts Centre.

Friday 1 February sees Down Arts Centre present a tribute to the legendary comedian Frank Carson with the production ‘Frank Carson–A Rebel Without A Pause, written and performed by Dan Gordon.

Belfast funnyman, Frank Carson blazed a comedy trail for over fifty years. His quick-fire gags and infectious laugh delighted audiences in variety shows, on television and in clubs across the land. He was Mayor of Balbriggan (twice), King of Blackpool, Clown Prince of Ireland and Prime Minister of Fun.

Newry Mourne and Down District Council Chairman, Councillor Mark Murnin said: “This is a show not to be missed. Frank Carson was rightly loved for his humour and this play is a fitting tribute to him.”

In this acclaimed one-man show, the audience is taken on a journey with Frank from his Belfast boyhood–where life was so tough even the arms on the chairs had tattoos–through his adventures 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 whirlwind comedy drama celebrating the man, the myth and the mouth – it’s a cracker!
