One of the UK’s leading comedians continues his sell-out nationwide tour in 2016! You know - that bloke. The Irish guy. No, not the bald one - the other one. You know him. The one Carol from work really likes. Wait, that might be Jason Byrne. Anyway… funny chap…has a new show!

In Outside Looking In, Ed reflects on everything from life as a father and husband to feminism and transgenderism. As an observational stand up, Ed Byrne is unrivalled. Wherever he performs, be it the Edinburgh Festival, on the International Circuit or a UK tour it is always to capacity audiences. He is consistently at the top of his game and produces time and time again not only fabulously funny shows but shows which critically are highly acclaimed!

Ed’s television credits are far reaching. Notable appearances include Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, The One Show, Live At The Apollo (all BBC) and Comic Relief Bake Off 2015, which saw Ed hosting one of the studio programmes as well as presenting the supporting Appeals VT, filmed in Uganda.

A future combining a TV career and his passion for the outdoors is in sights as he has now broken into Factual presenting. He continues to be a serious outdoors enthusiast e.g. he recently climbed Mt Blanc (Europe’s highest mountain) for the second time! The past two years have seen appearances on Dangerous Roads (BBC Two), Volcano Live (BBC Two) and he has co-presented a 3 X 1 hr series, Dara & Ed’s Big Adventure, which aired on BBC Two in the spring 2015. Ed writes a regular column for The Great Outdoor Magazine and will be fitting is as much Munro Bagging as he possible can whilst on tour! / TWITTER @MrEdByrne
