Full press release

Having charmed thousands of fans with his smash hit nationwide tour Cirque Du Byrne, won great acclaim with his very own Sony Award winning Radio 2 series The Jason Byrne Show and Father Figure; Jason Byrne returns to these shores to 'pull the strings' of his audience once more, as he takes brand new show People's Puppeteer across Scotland from August.

Jason is renowned the world over for his onstage exuberance, rib-tickling stunts and ability to cultivate the farcical antics of his audience. Dusting off his top hat for another round of comedy spectacle, Jason is back to deliver an utterly unique and absolutely unforgettable experience night after night.

Jason commented: "Scotland, home of the brave, great and biggest comedy festival in the world. I love being a part of it each year, I work my arse off, my bum literally needs a belly button screw to keep it on when I leave Edinburgh. So if you're not dragging your knees, arse or balls along the huge hills of Edinburgh city, come and drag yourself to my show, you won't be disappointed. Ice provided at the door."

The biggest selling comedian at the Edinburgh Comedy Festival, Jason Byrne's inspired, original brand of high-energy intelligent lunacy ensures that there is no other comedian like him and his sell out shows have attracted accolades including Chortle Award for Best Headliner 2007, Perrier Newcomer Award Nomination 1998 and Perrier Award Nomination 2001.
