If I Didn’t Laugh I’d Cry is the story of the life of the late Frank Carson. The much loved Northern Irish comedian, written and performed by Mike McCabe. Mike, a stand-up himself, met Frank in the late seventies on the set of the TV show the Comedians. Frank was so taken with Mike’s impression of him he bought him drinks for the rest of the evening. If I Didn’t Laugh I’d Cry will tell the story of Frank’s rise to fame and also an insight into some of the tragedy that he suffered in his life including killing the sniper who shot him in the leg during the war in Palestine, surviving two heart attacks and how he coped when in the eighties his TV work dried up as his act was thought to be too old-fashioned and racist for TV.

‘McCabe had them rolling in the aisles’
