Frank Carson

Legendary Northern Irish funny man Frank Carson has died aged 85…

I once met him in a station waiting room in Wolverhampton, he was just like was on stage talking no stop and even saying his catch phrase, ‘it’s the way I tell ’em’.

It was quite off but also really funny. A great mental one hour spent with Frank Carson.

Carson had suffered from poor health and his family said he passed away at his home in Blackpool, Lancashire – plans are being made for a funeral in Belfast. He leaves a wife, Ruth, daughter Majella and sons Tony and Aidan, as well as 10 grandchildren.


  1. Yeah, met him once, before a game at Blackpool Wren Rovers, it was like being at a show. 2 hours of non stop gags. To a crowd of three or four. He was one of a kind.

  2. ‘I saw Frank on an escalator, he was going up, I was going down. I said ‘Hello’. He told me eight jokes.’ – Bob Monkhouse. RIP Frank Carson

  3. Quran (4:104) – “And be not weak hearted in pursuit of the enemy; if you suffer pain, then surely they (too) suffer pain as you suffer pain…”

  7. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.
