At this time of year, as per usual, billboards round Dublin city are covered in posters for Brendan O'Carroll latest stage show.
Can anyone explain to me the attraction of this guy's act? From the brief excerpts I have seen over the years on the Late Late, it seems to consist of Brendan dressing up as a middle aged woman and mouthing inanities like 'me b.ollix' basically at random.
Crass vulgarity, faintly misogynistic in a way that's hard to put one's finger on, and above all just not very funny.
I can understand the attraction of vulgarity taken to the limit, like say Roy Chubby Brown or Andrew Dice Clay, but to me O'Carroll's act doesn't even pass that test.
