Frank Carson comedy at Market Place Theatre in Armagh

Frank Carson at the Market Place Theatre and Arts Centre in Armagh

‘Frank Carson: A Rebel Without A Pause’ is a whirlwind comedy drama celebrating the man, the myth and the mouth, and it’s set for The Market Place Theatre stage on Thursday, January 31.

Belfast funnyman Frank Carson blazed a comedy trail for over fifty years.

His quick-fire gags and infectious laugh delighted audiences on variety shows on telly and in clubs across the land – The Comedians , The Good Old Days, Seaside Special, Royal Variety, Noel’s Houseparty, Tiswas, and many more. In 1976 alone, he did forty-one network TV shows.

He was Mayor of Balbriggan [twice], King of Blackpool, Clown Prince of Ireland and Prime Minister of Fun.

But there’s more! In this acclaimed one-man show, written and performed by Dan Gordon, we 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. It’s a cracker!

Tickets for this superb performance are priced £10, £8 [concession] and £5 [student rate], and are available from the Theatre Box Office on [028] 3752 1821, or online at
