Biography: Ed Byrne

Ed Byrne

Others say

"Entertaining, easy and amenable"
Orchard Events

"Jokes come so fast that hecklers don't have a chance to get a word in edgeways"
THE TIMES

"It is rare for comedy to merit the word "masterful" but in this case it's no overstatement"
THE SCOTSMAN

"His set had the audience in stitches for most of the evening - they roared their approval at the end - but he is technically excellent as well, the sure sign of a comic on the cusp of a major league career. 1998 is proving a good year for comedy on the Fringe and it does not come better than this"
