Ed Byrne: Spoiler Alert

Enjoy a night of comedy with Ed Byrne: I originally intended to call the show, “I’ll Millennial You in a Minute”, but my promoter considered the title, “off-puttingly baffling”.   That’s my own chainsaw in the photo, by the way.

Is life that bad or have we good reason to complain about it? Are we filled with righteous anger at a world gone wrong or are we all just a bunch of whiny little brats? In short, are we spoiled? Come and watch as Byrne takes this question, turns it upside down and shakes it until the funny falls out. Go on, spoil yourself.

‘Comedy’s Holy Grail. Go See!’  Sunday Times

Recognized as one of the finest observational comics in the industry, Ed’s television credits are countless (provided you’re really bad at counting); Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, Live At The Apollo, The One Show, Comic Relief Bake Off 2015, The World’s Most Dangerous Roads and, most recently, he and Dara O Briain filmed the follow up their Big Adventure show for BBC2 entitled Dara and Ed’s Road to Mandalay

Ed’s standup career began during his college years at Strathclyde University, Glasgow.

As student welfare officer he was often called on to MC events in the university and soon was being invited to perform at other third-level institutions around Scotland. It wasn’t long before he’d quit his studies completely and started up a small comedy club in Glasgow. From there he moved to London, where he started all over again with open spots and short sets on the club circuit, honing his material and developing the curmudgeonly and nerdy persona we’ve all come to know.


“Jokes come so fast that hecklers don’t have a chance to get a word in edgeways” The Times

Byrne is at the top of his game” Sunday Telegraph

“It is rare for a comic to merit the word “masterful” but in this case it is no overstatement” The Scotsman
