Sad news the passing of legendary Northern Irish-born comedian Frank Carson albeit at the ripe old age of 85.
I had the pleasure of meeting him on an assignment for The Times in 2008 when I was shooting a feature about British comedians. We had an uproarious day in Blackpool with some of the greats. Frank was a cracker!
To see my day out, complete with candyfloss, kiss-me-quick hats and Jimmy Crankie, see the link below:
