Move over Dick Emery….

Several members of his own family play his on-screen family.

YouTube has plenty of scenes of Mrs Brown if you want to check her out. Be warned, this one will be big….
TV’s rudest, crudest mother hen is coming to roost at Seven with BAFTA-winning comedy Mrs Brown’s Boys set to premiere here this month.
The outrageous series about an interfering matriarch was awarded the 2012 BAFTA for Best Situation Comedy last week.
Mrs Brown’s Boys stars popular Irish comedian, Brendan O’Carroll, as Mrs Agnes Brown – a foul-mouthed mammy who meddles in the lives of her long-suffering six children with shocking and hilarious consequences.
The character is loosely based on O’Carroll’s mother Maureen, an Irish Labour politician who had 11 children, as well as women he encountered on Dublin’s Moore Street Market while growing up.
The cast includes O’Carroll’s wife, sister, son and daughter who also star with him in the sellout Mrs Brown stage shows.
Two seasons of Mrs Brown’s Boys have already been watched by millions in the UK and Ireland with a third due later this year.
