Described as the "king of live comedy" by The Times, Jason Byrne is one of the greatest British comedians available to book for your next event. As the biggest selling comedian at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival, it is no surprise that Jason has garnered a large fan following, selling out arenas up and down the country. Rather than following a particular style of comedy, he has created his own sub-genre of unique lunacy and side splitting wit.
With a combination of props, costumes, stories and jokes, Jason’s comedy show is jam packed with unique content. Fast paced and full to the brim with surprises, his audience is taken on a journey through offbeat one liners and free-wheeling comedy. Jason is a high energy performer, who bounces around the stage with an enthralling array of accents and personas. The Irish comedian keeps his audience hooked right to the punchline, flawlessly executing jokes with a cheeky smile and his iconic, thick rimmed glasses.
As far as comedians go, there are none quite like Jason - and he has got the awards to prove it. Nominated for the Perrier Award and the Perrier Newcomer Award, he has earned critical acclaim from prestigious comedy critics. Additionally, Jason won the Best Headliner Chortle Award in 2007 and the Forth One Fringe Award in 2004. As a testament to his exceptional comedic ability, Jason even became the first comedian to sell over 25,000 tickets at the Edinburgh Festival in 2008.
From Milan to Singapore, Jason has filled venues with laughter all over the world. Whether he is touring nationally or internationally, he is a true joy to witness perform live. As his shows are commonly sold out, the performance is sold as DVD’s for disappointed fans desperate to hear Jason’s latest jokes, including Jason Byrne - Out of the Box in 2006 and The Byrne Identity in 2008. Jason is also a popular comedic actor. From Father Ted and The General, to Alice in Wonderland and Class Clowns, he has featured as both a guest, actor and the host of his own show, Anonymous.
