The star of Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, Live At The Apollo, Comic Relief Bake Off and Dara and Ed’s Great Big Adventure, Ed Byrne, will be heading to Londonderry’s Millennium Forum on Sunday, May 22.

In Outside Looking In, Ed reflects on everything from life as a father and husband to feminism and transgenderism. As an observational stand up, Ed Byrne is unrivalled.

Wherever he performs, be it the Edinburgh Festival, on the International Circuit or a UK tour it is always to capacity audiences. He is consistently at the top of his game and produces time and time again not only fabulously funny shows but shows which critically are highly acclaimed!

Ed’s television credits are far reaching. Notable appearances include Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, The One Show, Live At The Apollo (all BBC) and Comic Relief Bake Off 2015, which saw Ed hosting one of the studio programmes as well as presenting the supporting Appeals VT, filmed in Uganda.

A future combining a TV career and his passion for the outdoors is in sights as he has now broken into Factual presenting. He continues to be a serious outdoors enthusiast e.g. he recently climbed Mt Blanc (Europe’s highest mountain) for the second time!

The past two years have seen appearances on Dangerous Roads (BBC Two), Volcano Live (BBC Two) and he has co-presented a 3 X 1 hr series, Dara & Ed’s Big Adventure, which aired on BBC Two in the spring 2015. Ed writes a regular column for The Great Outdoor Magazine and will be fitting is as much Munro Bagging as he possible can whilst on tour!
