Bren­dan: I’d die for Mrs Brown

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

CO­ME­DIAN Bren­dan O’Car­roll says he would love to DROP DEAD per­form­ing on stage.

Bren­dan ( above), 62, is best known as Agnes Brown in BBC com­edy Mrs Brown’s Boys and his ideal death would be while play­ing his iconic char­ac­ter.

He said: “I’d love to die on stage. That would be the per­fect end­ing for me, like Tommy Cooper did. I’d be de­lighted.

“When you love what you’re do­ing, it’s not a job, so if you’re in the mid­dle of telling a gag and God de­cides boom, now’s the mo­ment, then that’s the mo­ment.

“You hit the deck. What a way to go!”

Ir­ish-born Bren­dan lives in Florida thanks to his rags-to-riches story, which be­gan in 1992.

When asked to read a few lines on a ra­dio show, Bren­dan in­sisted he could make the script fun­nier and Mrs Brown’s Boys was born.

It’s a real fam­ily af­fair off-screen too with Bren­dan’s wife Jen­nifer Gib­ney, 53, play­ing Cathy Brown and six other fam­ily mem­bers all star­ring in the show. VIRUSES can get in­fected by viruses.
