Irish stand-up Jason Byrne presents this radio series which is described as 'perfect for anyone who loves a little bit of chaos with their comedy'.
The comic explores the broad areas of topics such as couples, law, education, sport, religion and medicine with a combination of stand-up and sketches.
From going on a first date to the birth of his children, from the politics of the playground to getting in trouble with the police, Byrne looks at all these areas and more.
In the first series, the Irish stand-up was additionally joined each week by Tom Binns as spoof hospital DJ Ivan Brackenbury.
