Mrs Brown’s Boys star and creator Brendan O’Carroll has spoken about his dream guest stars, saying he is very keen for U2 to appear on the show.
The actor, who is back for the latest festive edition of the programme on Christmas Day, said he would break his own rule of not having celebrity guests in order to get Bono and co. on the sitcom.
‘Normally we would never have famous people as guest stars on ‘Mrs. Brown’s Boys’. It’s not something we do,’ he told the Daily Star.
‘But the one thing I would love to do is have Bono and U2 on. I would get them to play Foley’s at the end of the episode.’
Brendan has even thought about how he’d incorporate the Irish group into the show, with a plot already in his head.
He said: ‘I’d have Agnes go up to them on the stage just as they start playing one of their hits and go, “I don’t want to hear any of that s***.” And then she gets them to play crooner songs.
‘That’s my one wish so let’s see if that ever works out.’
It comes ahead of this year’s Mrs Brown’s Boys Christmas specials.
The first, titled Mammy’s Mechanical Merriment, will see Agnes Brown (Brendan) become a new member of the church choir in Finglas – although she’s been instructed by Father McBride (Jimmy Gibney) not to sing or dance, making her membership something of a conundrum.
Meanwhile, Buster (Danny O’Carroll) has to tap into his creative side while facing a Christmas tree shortage, as he ponders how else he can impress Agnes in light of the hurdle.
Elsewhere, Dermot (Paddy Houlihan) and Buster are running the Christmas celebrations at Foleys, organising a Murder Mystery night in aid of alcoholic greyhounds… as you do.
Mrs Browns Boys is available to watch on BBC iPlayer
