All right if you like laughing,
This review is from: Mrs Brown's Boys - Series 1 [DVD]  (DVD)I had never previously heard of Brendan O'Carrol, but I leapt from ignorance to being a fan in about a minute.
Although very different from Father Ted, Mrs Brown has the same maverick, off-the -wall humour which catches you off guard.
The fact that Mrs Brown is acted by a bloke is never milked for laughs. There is absolutely no echo of the pantomime dame or even Mrs Doubtfire.
I can sum up MRS BROWN'S BOYS by using the old Irish phrase "It is all right, if you like laughing."

Are you kidding? He breaks the 4th wall to announce he is a man for cheap laughs at every given opertunity.

To Charlie Downes:-
I see what you mean. I did not express it very well. I meant that he makes a totally believable middle-aged woman, and you easily forget he is a bloke, unlike Tootsie or Mrs Doubtfire.
And I just love those cardies!
