It's the way Dan tells 'em as Carson show wows critics

Editor's Viewpoint

Comedy icon Frank Carson's famous catchphrase - "It's the way I tell 'em" - could equally be applied to Dan Gordon's one-man show on the life of the Belfast comedian. For his solo tour de force has been winning plaudits at the prestigious Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

Carson's life was a complex one and many facets of it will be unknown to the legion of fans who were only aware of his stand-up career.

Gordon's meticulously researched play is an eye-opener as well as an entertaining romp in its own right.

Frank would be delighted that his name is still up in lights and still packing them in five years after his death.
