Jason Byrne: 20 Years a Clown Review

James McPherson – EdFestMag


Jason Byrne is celebrating his twentieth year at the Fringe and he shows absolutely no signs of letting up, holding the audience in the palm of his hand throughout this standup tour-de-force and having them howling within ten minutes of walking onto the stage.

The topics he covers are nothing out of the ordinary, but his strength of character and delivery really creates a fantastic hour of comedy. Of particular note is the way in which he interacts hugely with the audience throughout the entire show, seemingly abandoning his prepared material to go off on wildly hilarious tangents with whatever the unsuspecting members of the audience hand him.

And that’s without going into the treat he has for the audience towards the end of his show, where they get to humiliate him, for a change. Brilliant.
