Mrs. Brown's Boys cast


Well this will we hope please most of you. Not only is Mrs Brown's Boys returning to BBC One this Christmas with a second series straight on its heels, a third series has already been commissioned before the second one has even gone out!

Originally a theatrical production, Mrs Brown's Boys is created, written by and stars Brendan O'Carroll as misbehaving matriarch Agnes Brown.

"What an extraordinary Christmas present," says Brendan, "The BBC must be mad! To allow us to dress up and play again is an extraordinary gift and we genuinely don't take it lightly. We're overwhelmed with the support of the audience and hopefully when they see what we've done with the second series they'll see that maybe the BBC is not totally mad."

When aired earlier this year, the series one viewing figures peaked at more than four million.

Danny Cohen the Controller of BBC One adds, "Mrs Brown's Boys is a joyful, laugh-out-loud comedy that I'm delighted to have on BBC One. It's great news for us that we are extending our deal to a third series."

    Great to see Mrs Brown's Boys is coming back, great show! BUT.....the Beeb has excelled itself in the comedy department with the funniest show EVER. Masterchef the Professionals is just side splittingly hilarious. The facial expressions of that Monica whateverhernameis attempting to emulate Michel Roux brings tears to my eyes, I haven't laughed so much since my Granny broke wind at my cousins christening. And more than that, the ugly fat greengrocer is doing the same AND adding wild arm gestures when the contestants are running late serving the revered spongers, sorry food critics.
    I hope the BBC will be entering this programme in the television comedy awards, it'll win hands down.
    Brilliant comedy, well worth missing Corrie for!

    I was fortunate enough to have been to two of the Series 2 recordings and can't wait to see all the episodes on screen.

    I was sore with laughter watching the recordings & I was also sore because my sister-in-law kept digging me in the ribs to tell me her ribs were sore from laughing so much - that's nice!!!

    I love that Sopranos style promo poster they have made. Not sure on the show though. I haven't checked it out. Does it use canned laughter?
