Last night I went to see Ed Byrne. He is currently doing his 2009 Different Class tour. I just wanted to report back how good the evening was. He came straight onto the stage and no warm up act was required. He came across as a really nice guy and the crowd warmed to him very quickly.

I'd seen him once before when he did a turn at the recent Secret Policeman's Ball and the only slight blip was that he repeated a joke from the Ball in his set last night. However, his performance was such that I would forgive him that small indiscretion.

Overall, a good show and I'd recommend it.

I Like Ed Byrne.
I met him a few times at the Cosmic Comedy club many moons ago.
He was really friendly, and I remember him giving me some good advice about my stand up act.
Something about my day job I think it was Eh? :)

Do many standups have warm up acts?

I saw this same tour last autumn and he had a warm-up, a very funny one from New Zealand. A few big names I've been to see have had warm-ups: Gervais, Chris Rock, Ed Byrne, Stewart Lee. But Jimmy Carr, Skinner, Ross Noble, Dylan Moran didn't.

In fact Ross Noble had to be told to get off as he had done an hour of encore - he was brilliant.

Gervais has a warm-up act?! No wonder people find him so funny.

I was on the writing team for Ed Byrne's new BBC comedy panel show pilot "Sex Bombs". He's bloody good in the chair, very witty and likeable. Hope it gets a series!

(I'm expecting a DVD of the pilot through any day. I shall report my findings.)
