Jason Byrne is an energetic bloke to say the least - his shows are fast-paced almost chaotic and frenetic affairs that normally end up with some of the audience being made just a teeny bit foolish with a good old bit of audience-involvement. If you like a bit of Perrier-Award winning madness from a comedian who has played the Edinburgh Fringe for 13 years on the trot then this man is for you.
Although he is best-known for stand-up, he has also appeared in Father Ted, The General, Alice in Wonderland (the series) and the RTE series, The Byrne Ultimatum (groan) and Anonymous.
Byrne is back in the UK for a short run of dates at the Leicester Square Theatre in London, running from 28th September to 2nd October and this is a show that should sell out pretty quickly. The Irish live-wire will no doubt once again have people dancing on stage and looning about for no reason other than to look foolish in front of their mates (he's currently on tour winding Australia up at the moment). Tickets are on sale now and cost £15.
Prior to this he plays Derry on 9th July for a one-off show costing the same lovely price.
