Brendan Grace @ Civic Theatre, Tallaght

Brendan Grace 300x 300

COMEDIAN Brendan Grace 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..

41 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.

Brendan’s latest show features some brand new material and some ‘Old Favourites’ from his vast repertoire over the last 41 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.

The concert takes place at the Civic Theatre on February 26 & 27th at 8pm. Tickets can be booked from the hotel on 01 4627477 or online here or available at the door on the night.
