News: New UK Tour For Jason Byrne

Madcap Irish comic Jason Byrne has announced a new tour entitled The Man With Three Brains. He will be playing 34 dates starting at Harrogate Theatre on 4 October 2017 and currently finishing in Southend at The Palace on 3 December. 

His 2016 UK tour saw props in the form of giant ducks, rubber hands, owls, big wooden pegs and amazing magic stunts. On this tour it’s time to explore the lunacy that’s inside Jason’s head.

Live Review: Sky Cat Laughs, Kilkenny

Jason Byrne is doing a gig for the Invisible Dot at the Union Chapel in London on Saturday night alongside Adam Buxton. It is not too clear who is headlining, but I hope for Adam’s sake it is Jason. Buxton is brilliant, but the copper-haired Irish livewire is pretty much impossible to follow.

News: Jason Byrne Offers Cash Prize For Best Show Title

Jason Byrne is adding a new interactive element to his forthcoming show, which starts its 28-date UK tour in Sheffield on October 9. The tour follows a successful run at the Edinburgh Festival.

Each year Jason is asked for the name of his touring show and each year Jason has to think up a title. This year he is handing the power back to the people and is asking his audience to name the show for him. Hence the provisional title of You Name The Show.

TV Review: Man Down, C4

Hold the proverbial front page. Stop the so-called presses. Man Down is not yet another school-based sitcom. When I heard that Greg Davies would be playing a teacher in his self-penned sitcom debut I assumed this would pick up similar themes to Big School and Bad Education. Particularly as Davies has carved out a bit of a blackboard-based niche for himself playing Mr Gilbert in The Inbetweeners. 

TV Review: Father Figure, BBC1

I don't think I've ever wanted to like a series as much as I wanted to like Father Figure. I've loved its star, Jason Byrne, for years. As a freewheeling stand-up he takes some beating and I've seen him deliver some brilliantly unpredictable shows, dragging audience members onstage to be part of his cock-eyed manic mayhem. And I liked his Radio 2 series which has now become this BBC1 sitcom. So it is with a heavy heart that I have to say that Father Figure is painfully, excruciatingly disappointing.
