The fast-talking Irish comedian and radio host made his first appearance at the iconic Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 1996, and his name has appeared on the line-up every year since. The 40-year-old’s high-energy stand-ups often involve props and moments of audience participation (so beware if you end up in the front row). He’s been known to throw tongue-in-cheek insults at his helpers on stage during the show. For further details, see our interview with Jason on page 101. Dhs100, Dhs195 (with three drinks and food). 7pm, May 10-12. Almas Tower, JLT, www.timeouttickets.com.
