Brendan O’Carroll to make documentary about Trump’s presidency
Mrs Brown’s Boys star Brendan O’Carroll has revealed he is in talks to film a documentary about the first six months of Donald Trump’s presidency.
The comedian was speaking at the National Television Awards where he landed the prize for Best Comedy.
He told the Sunday People: “It would be Brendan O’Carroll Trumps the USA. I’ve been asked to look at the first six months of Donald Trump’s presidency and to go into Kentucky, Ohio and Indiana and to see what kind of effect he’s had.”
Away from his role as matriarch Agnes Brown, O’Carroll has experience in serious television after he took a look back at his own family member’s role in the Easter Rising for the BBC documentary My Family at War.
The Trump documentary would see O’Carroll spend some time in the States and examine the impact the first six months’ of the Republican’s presidency.
O’Carroll added: “I’d like to do more documentaries. I’d love to do this one, if I can find the time.”
He also spoke about other projects he has on the horizon, including variety show All Round to Mrs Brown. It will see O’Carroll’s wife Jennifer Gibney resume her role as Cathy Brown, and host a series of guests with Mrs Brown also part of the panel.
Although Gibney joked that the Irish chat show king need have nothing to worry about: “Graham Norton’s job is safe, it’s definitely safe!”
