With his TV career now in its third decade, the much loved master of observational comedy has appeared on the likes of Father Ted, QI, Mock The Week, Alan Davies As Yet Untitled, The Pilgrimage, Dara & Ed’s Big Adventure and Have I Got News For You, as well as hosting Live At The Apollo and Comic Relief Bake Off.
The Irishman will be performing his new live show, ‘Tragedy Plus Time’ on Wednesday, 7 February 2024, direct from its premiere at the 2023 Edinburgh Festival, where it received a stack of 5-star reviews and was named Best Reviewed Show at the Fringe. Humour was defined as ‘tragedy plus time’ by Mark Twain, so Ed says he is going to test that formula by mining the most tragic event in his life for laughs.
Recognised as one of the finest observational comics, Ed has also developed huge success on the international circuit, performing to capacity audiences in Canada, France, Australia, New Zealand and the USA. He is an Edinburgh Festival Fringe favourite and has performed sell-out tours across the UK. It will be Ed’s fourth appearance at the Middleton venue, having performed previously there in 2015, 2017 and 2021.
Ed Byrne ‘Tragedy Plus Time’ is at Middleton Arena at 7.30pm on Wednesday 7 February 2024 February. Tickets are £27.50, plus booking fee.
