Fancy a good giggle while helping a great cause.
Brendan O’Carroll, the man behind Mrs Brown, often described as the “funniest man in Ireland”, will perform a special show in aid of Children in Crossfire at Da Vinci’s Hotel this Thursday evening, May 10.
The Da Vinci’s Hotel Complex have chosen Children in Crossfire as their Charity of the Year and as part of this initiative, they wrote to Brendan O’Carroll asking if he might consider an event for the local charity during his stay in Derry.
It is understood that the hotel also sent the much-loved comedian a copy of Richard Moore autogiography ‘Can I Give Him My Eyes?’ to provide more information on the charity itself, and Mr O’Carroll has been reading the book throughout his current tour.
O’Carroll is in town to perform the latest Mrs Brown show at the Millennium Forum, and will come to Da Vinci’s straight from his Forum show.
The entertainment at Da Vinci’s kicks off at 9pm with comedian Neil Dougan and music by The Soul Seekers, followed by Brendan O’Carroll at 11pm.
A spokesperson for Children in Crossfire told the ‘Journal’: “We are greatly encouraged by the enthusiasm and support the Da Vinci’s staff have shown towards our work.
“Our partnership with Da Vinci’s will enable us to deliver vital medical and educational projects to some of the world’s most vulnerable children.
“We would like to thank them for organising this special event with Brendan O’Carroll.
“Brendan is one of Ireland’s most versatile and successful entertainers and it’s a real privilege to have him support our work.”
Thursday night’s event takes place at The Grill Room in Da Vinci’s and provides an amazing opportunity for fans of Brendan O’Carroll to see him in a very intimate setting for one-night only. Doors 9pm and tickets are priced £10 each from Da Vinci’s - telephone: 71. 279111.
All proceeds to Children in Crossfire.
