Ed Byrne plans double visit to region
PUBLISHED: 13:50 25 November 2017
One of the most recognisable comedians in the UK right now will be bringing his new tour to both Weston and Bristol next year.
Ed Byrne will serve up his irresistible and inimitable Irish charm to West Country audiences on two occasions in the first half of 2018.
The dates should prove to be unmissable for any stand-up comedy fans.
Byrne has returned to the road after a total sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run this summer and he is back with his biggest ever tour to date.
His new show is called Spoiler Alert.
Byrne said: “I originally intended to call the show I’ll Millennial You In A Minute, but my promoter considered the title ‘off-puttingly baffling’.”
Spoiler Alert show will focus on the narrow line between people justifiable complaining about things going wrong and simply whining.
Byrne said: “Are we right to be fed up, or are we spoiled?”
While Byrne is a regular on the live comedy circuit, he is probably even more well-known for his television appearances.
His television credits include regular panel appearances on BBC’s Mock The Week, alongside the likes of Outnumbered’s Hugh Dennis.
But he has also been a guest on Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, Live At The Apollo, The One Show, Comic Relief Bake Off 2015 plus The World’s Most Dangerous Roads.
And, most recently, he and Mock The Week host Dara O Briain filmed Dara and Ed’s Road To Mandalay.
The 45-year-old began his Spoiler Alert tour back in September, but unfortunately West Country audiences must wait a little longer to see him on stage. Good things, however, come to those who wait.
Byrne will be at the Colston Hall in Bristol on March 8 and at Weston’s Playhouse two months later on May 3.
The Bristol and Weston gigs will start at 8pm.
Tickets for the Colston Hall show, priced £25.80 including a booking fee, are available online at www.colstonhall.org or by telephoning 01172 034040.
Tickets for the Weston performance, priced £26, can also be purchased online by logging on to www.theplayhouse.co.uk or from the box office by calling 01934 645544.
