Irish comedian Jason Byrne will bring the kind of madness that has made him famous to New Zealand for the first time ever when he performs at this year's New Zealand Comedy Festival in May.
Byrne's brand new show, People's Puppeteer, promises to be an anarchy-packed hour of acrobatic proportions. Without doubt the definitive clown of comedy, Byrne is renowned for pushing his riotous shows and infamous audience participation to the edge with his inspired and original brand of high-energy intelligent lunacy.
It is no surprise that Byrne is often touted the funniest and most successful solo act in the history of the esteemed Edinburgh Festival Fringe, where he has performed for the past 14 years, and continues to be one of the Festival's top sellers year after year.
Byrne's television credits are extensive. In the UK, he has appeared on The Graham Norton Show (BBC1), as well as Live at the Apollo (BBC1). In Australia, he is a regular on the Melbourne International Comedy Festival televised galas, where his brand of unique humour translates instantly. The Jason Byrne Show which airs on BBC Radio 2, won the Sony Gold Radio Award for Best Comedy in 2011. He has released two live DVDs - Jason Byrne – Out Of The Box and The Byrne Identity – and continues to tour extensively worldwide.
Jason Byrne's shows are a must-see – miss it at your peril.
