The Sins of Jack Saul

Glenn Chandler Published by Grovesnor House Price 12.60 Euro by Marco Vichi Translated by Stephen Sartarelli Published by Hodder & Stoughton Price €25

To be the center of one political scandal might be unfortunate but to be at the center of two political scandals seems more like carelessness. Such was the fate of Dubliner Jack Saul, born in the Liberties in the 1860's and who in his short life was part of the biggest scandals to have rocked the Victorian establishment both in Dublin and in London. Once flippantly described as 'the patron saint of rentboys' Jack Saul was for most of his working life a male prostitute, first in Dublin and then in London where he gained notoriety as 'Dublin Jack'.

Born into poverty the odds were stacked against Jack from the start. Luckily enough he survived,

Brendan Grace at the Theatre Royal on Thursday 16th February @ 8pm.

It's a funny old world when seen through the eyes of Brendan Grace.

The sanctimonious priest who knows more than he's telling, the father of the bride makes a speech at his daughter’s wedding, and then there's the schoolboy with the unspeakable personal habits and a fine line in sympathy pleas.

Brendan Grace is all of these and more.

Brendan's material owes more to the best of the traditional stand-up-comics than it does to modern alternative humour and his show is very much a show for all the family. There is sincerity about his act that endears you to him, and his off-stage persona is very much a 'man of the people' as he makes himself available after each show for a photo and a 'meet and greet.

Price €31. BOOK now as
