Brendan Grace

Amazing Grace is a phrase often applied to Brendan Grace and is very true indeed. The genial and much loved family comedian is celebrating 42 years in comedy and is now more popular than at any time in his career to date. And what an illustrious career it has been!

Forty years ago when the 20-year-old Dubliner set off on his solo career, he could never have envisaged the life that lay ahead. Just two years later, he recordeed a Geordie song called Cushy Butterfield which sailed to Number 1 in the Irish charts, and the rest is history.
