Ed Byrne – Sands Centre

  7th April

Ed Byrne is one of the UK’s most notable observational comics. If you haven’t seen his stand-up then you will likely have caught him on one of the many shows he is a regular on, the likes of Mock the Week, The Graham Norton Show, Dara and Ed’s Big Adventure, QI and many more.

His witty and often dry humour often delves into the depths of society’s latest issues, bringing out the fun from the everyday situation. His latest tour ‘If I’m Honest’ will see him take a long hard look at himself and tries to decide if he has ANY traits that are worth passing on to his children.

He will perform at the Sands Centre this April. Visit the Sands Centre website for tickets and info:  betterboxoffice.co.uk/the-sands-centre
