Ed Byrne extends upcoming UK tour

Fans can get tickets in our presale.

Popular stand-up comedian Ed Byrne has extended his upcoming If I’m Honest… UK tour.

The newly announced dates kick off in Crawley on Friday 17 January 2020, taking in a total of 45 shows and finishes in Yeovil on Sunday 29 March 2020.

Irish born Byrne first broke into stand-up whilst studying at Glasgow’s University of Strathclyde, where the comic hosted and performed at his own comedy nights. After honing his act in the city’s clubs, Byrne was nominated for the prestigious Perrier Comedy Award at the 1998 Edinburgh Fringe Festival and promptly dropped out of university to concentrate on his fledgling career.

The observational comedian released his first DVD Pedantic and Whimsical in 2006 and has followed it up with two more releases so far, 2009’s Different Class and 2011’s Crowdpleaser.

Byrne is perhaps best known by UK audiences for his regular appearances on the BBC panel show Mock the Week. The show, hosted by Byrne’s close friend Dara O’Briain, features a panel of performers poking fun at the current state of politics. Byrne has appeared on the show more than 40 times.

Alongside Mock the Week, the Irish comic has also appeared on television shows such as Have I Got News for You, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, The One Show and The Graham Norton Show.

A globe-trotting comedian, Byrne has performed stand-up shows in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Belgium, Bermuda and Switzerland, to name a few.

The comic’s last UK jaunt Spoiler Alert toured theatres between September 2017 and March 2018 to rave reviews.

Promising to be a hilarious night out, jam-packed with personal anecdotes about his and his families’ lives, Ed Byrne brings his newest tour, If I’m Honest… to venues all across the UK in 2019 and 2020.
