20 Years a Clown
Byrne’s very own brand of verbose, organised chaos and near legendary stock-in-trade audience participation has seen him coined “the outright king of live comedy” by The Times. So it is no surprise that he is the biggest selling comedian at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and that in 2015 he will be celebrating his 20th year of solo shows!
It’s been a busy few years for Byrne. In addition to his extensive touring worldwide, his Radio 2 show was awarded the UK radio industry’s prestigious Sony Radio Gold Award. As well as fronting a brand new studio based comedy chat show Jason Byrne’s Snaptastic Show for TV3 in Ireland, he is co-host of Sky’s hugely popular new entertainment programme Wild Things on Sky1.
Also seen on Live at the Apollo (BBC One), The Royal Variety Show (ITV), John Bishop’s Christmas Show (BBC1), and Father Figure (BBC One) of which he is creator and star.
