Ireland has a rich history of producing excellent comedies, although we haven't had too many of note in recent years.
There is just something fantastic about watching a show that is built around unmistakably Irish humour, something this new offering could provide.
Frank of Ireland has been released in recent days, with all six episodes now available to stream for free online. The comedy stars the likes of Brian Gleeson, Domhnall Gleeson, and Tom Vaughan-Lawlor and has a very Irish feel to it.
It is based around the exploits of Frank Marron (Brian Gleeson), a 32-year old slacker who lives at home with his mother and can't seem to do anything right when it comes to his career, relationships, or any aspect of his life.
The show is now available to stream on All 4, and you can watch the trailer for it below.
Amazon Prime describes the show as:
Frank of Ireland is a physical and ridiculous brand of humour with an original twist. Brian Gleeson (Peaky Blinders, The Bisexual), stars as Frank Marron, a 32-year-old catastrophe; a misanthropic fantasist in arrested development who’s convinced that the world owes him. He's also our hero.
Frank is newly single and still lives at home with his mother, Mary (Pom Boyd). He’s a self-proclaimed musician with a tenuous hold on reality, and hasn’t written a song or played a gig in years. His ex-girlfriend Áine (Sarah Greene) has just found a new boyfriend, and Frank may be finding that a tad difficult.
Luckily, Frank has a loyal best friend, Doofus, (Domhnall Gleeson) whose full-time job is clearing the debris left in Frank’s wake.
We're looking forward to seeing what it has to offer.
