Veteran comedian, entertainer and musician Brendan Grace sadly passed away at the age of 68 in hospital overnight.

Mr Grace, a native of Dublin’s Liberties, was suffering from lung cancer, and had been undergoing treatment for pneumonia for the last month.

The documentary that Producer and Director Brian Reddin was working on with the stalwart funnyman, “Brendan Grace: Thanks For The Memories” captures Grace’s final moments and is due to air in November.

Brian joins Ivan to discuss the legendary comedian’s last few weeks and the long legacy he leaves behind.
