Veteran Comedian Frank Carson’s Funeral in Belfast

Veteran Comedian Frank Carson’s Funeral in Belfast

Veteran Northern Irish comedian and actor Frank Carson’s funeral will take place today at St. Patrick's Church, Donegall Street at 11:30 GMT. Carson, 85, who was sick for a long time, lost his life a month ago at his home in Blackpool, Lancashire.

The main reason for organizing Carson’s funeral at Belfast is that it was his birth place and a lot of emotions were attached with the place, said Carson’s family members. Carson was a great comedian and TV artist, and had earned a lot of respect in Britain and Ireland as he was quiet regular in the television mediums of both the places.

Carson’s funeral mass expects to see glamour personalities from Britain and Ireland. His funeral will be led by retired Bishop of Derry and Bishop Edward Daly and his coffin will be taken from the Catholic Church to the nearby Protestant St Anne's Cathedral in Belfast.

To talk about the Carson’s life: he was born to a binman on November 6, 1926. Since childhood, he wanted that everyone should remain happy and he tried different tactics to keep everyone around him to keep them in a cheerful mood.

He never thought of becoming a comedian, and it can be seen from the works he did in the initial stages of his career. He has worked as a plasterer and electrician, but soon he realized that he wants to be a comedian.

In fact, people who used to work with him used to praise his comedian skills and they also encouraged him to try his luck in television.

He made his debut in Irish television and later he shifted to England where his performance in the TV music hall revival show The Good Old Days was highly appreciated. He kept on climbing the ladder of success, but illness took a toll over him.
