Festival fringe comedy review: Jason Byrne

A Fringe stalwart and deservedly sold out many nights, Jason Byrne is the archetypal Irish stand up.

He berates life, his idiosyncratic working class childhood and then picks on a few brave souls in the audience to tease, mock and generally make them the butt of a stream of jokes.

His quick wit and the material on his overdose on magnesium tablets and how over-protective we are of children these days will have you chuckling for days.

Book ahead if you can.
