FRANK CARSON

6 November 1926 – 22 February 2012

 

It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing of Frank Carson.

Frank will be remembered for being a wonderful stand-up comedian from the golden era of light entertainment on television shows such as The Comedians, Tiswas, Opportunity Knocks and many many more…

His catchphrases “It’s The Way I Tell ‘Em’” and “It’s A Cracker” were heard and repeated by audiences all over the world.  Frank continued to perform his stand-up show until December last year, one of his final performances was for The Duke Of Edinburgh.

Throughout his life Frank raised lots of money for charity and was recognised by the Roman Catholic Church when he was awarded a Papal Knighthood of the Order of St Gregory by Pope John Paul II.

His audience and friends alike will remember him as a genuine, kind-hearted and generous man who was also very funny because of ‘the way he told ‘em’.

We will remember him as one of the nicest people in showbiz, a gentleman and a friend.
