Mrs Brown’s Boys

One of the biggest comedy shows on TV

The much-loved Mrs Brown’s Boys is created and written by Brendan O’Carroll and stars him in the lead role as misbehaving matriarch Agnes Brown.

“We love, love, LOVE this comedy”

The Mirror

“It is a great credit to the cast and producers that our audience continue to “love” this character and the show. Just goes to show that "The family that laughs together, stays together”.

Brendan O’Carroll

“Here’s a show that exhibits a flair for fourth wall breaking self-awareness…that meta wannabe Arrested Development would kill for.”

The Guardian
