What people said about Ed Byrne

Entertaining, easy and amenable.
Orchard Events
Jokes come so fast that hecklers don't have a chance to get a word in edgeways.
It is rare for comedy to merit the word "masterful" but in this case it is no overstatement.
His set had the audience in stitches for most of the evening - they roared their approval - and he is technically excellent as well!
Astoundingly polished material
He describes himself as a stick insect rather than sex symbol but the high proportion of women hanging onto his every witticism suggests otherwise. He may be thin and weedy but his material certainly is not
Apart from being a very polite, accommodating person, he did exactly what we wanted - made people laugh.
