Brendan Grace, the sanctimonious priest, knows more than he’s telling this Wednesday 22nd February at the Ardhowen Theatre. Then there’s the schoolboy with the unspeakable personal habits and a fine line in sympathy pleas. Brendan Grace is all of these and more. His material owes more to the best of the traditional stand-up-comics than it does to modern alternative humour and this is very much a show for all the family.


It’s been over 20 years since Frances Black and Kieran Goss last toured together.

Now for the first time in Cookstown they reunite for a special show at the Burnavon Theatre, Friday 24th February.
