Irish comic Mike McCabe knew Frank. Frank was so taken with Mike's impression of him he bought him drinks for the rest of the evening and they became friends. If I Didn't Laugh I'd Cry tells the story of Frank's rise to fame and it also gives an insight into some of the tragedy that Carson suffered during his life. 'Mike McCabe is a genuinely funny man' (Stage). 'McCabe had them rolling in the aisles' (Belfast Telegraph). 'Sharp and very funny' (Glasgow Herald).
