After being cooped up in the BBC, writing and recording his sitcom, Father Figure for the past few months Jason Byrne is bursting for a chat. He comes back to The Source Arts Centre this January 17 to do what he does best – unleash comedy mayhem.
Jason’s recent Wrecking Ball spoof for Prince Charles and Camilla at The Royal Variety Performance had the audience and the royal couple in stitches, the inspiration for his grand entrance came about after being dared by an audience member at a recent gig. No words can do justice to this manic ball of comedic energy. The biggest selling comedian at every year’s Edinburgh Fringe has a way of bouncing onto the stage, picking some random object like a fire extinguisher, obsessing about it, pouring forth the torrent of pure comedy that has built up inside his head, making you laugh until you cry and then…. it’s over.
An hour in his company feels like 10 minutes and you won’t be able to remember one joke, not even a funny line but you may well have split your sides.
