In honor of the Saint Patrick celebration we are focusing on all things Irish these days. Brendan Grace is particularly funny in his many presentations. I liked this one about what men from around the world do in a crises. Take a moment and watch Brendan. It’s Clean. It’s Fun and It’s all Irish.
Brendan Grace (born 1 April 1951) is an Irish comedian and singer. He is known for his comedy schoolboy character “Bottler”, the role of Murphy in the 1995 movie Moondance, and his 1996 appearance in the Irish TV sitcom Father Ted as Father Fintan Stack. His 1975 song, “Combine Harvester”, hit number one in Ireland, and the song would later become a U.K. number one hit for The Wurzels in 1976. Brendan released his latest DVD Bottler in November 2013. It tells of Bottler’s exploits in his early years.
Born in the heart of Dublin in 1951, Brendan was raised in the inner city Liberties neighborhood. His father Seamus worked as a bartender, an ambulance man and at other odd jobs to keep the family going. However, like many young Dubliners of the time, Brendan eventually left school at the age of 15 to begin working. His first job was as a messenger boy, an occupation he often refers to in his live act.
Brendan Grace married Eileen Doyle in 1973. They have four children, one of whom, Bradley Grace, is a member of the American hardcore rock band Poison the Well.
Brendan now divides his time between his home in West Palm Beach, Florida, and his pub in Killaloe, County Clare, which he named ‘Brendan Grace’s Bar’
