Jason Byrne to return to McGettigan’s in Dubai

Jason Byrne is coming back to Dubai for another hilarious gig, and we're already booking our tickets.

McGettigan’s JLT is opening its doors once again for the award-winning Irish comedian, and if it’s anything like his last few performances, it’s looking to be a sell-out show.

The two-night comedy performance will be running on Thursday April 25 and Friday 26 from 8pm until 10pm, and you can expect natural quick wit and improv skills along with a handful of prepared gags.

He’s been killing it with his most recent tour “You Can Come Is, But Don’t Start Anything” recently, but each show is renowned for being totally different because of the crowd interaction.

The star of Ireland’s Got Talent first made an appearance at McGettigan’s Comedy Fest back in 2011, and has since won best-selling comedian at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and took home a Perrier Award nomination for his show.

Byrne’s television credits include Comedy Annual, Dave’s One Night Stand, The Channel 4 Comedy Gala, John Bishop’s Only Joking and Anonymous – and he has even performed in front of Prince Charles at the Royal Variety.

Can’t wait to hear a new line of quality jokes? Tickets are priced at Dhs120, and you can get them right here.

Byrne once took over the Time Out Dubai studio, and needless to say he was full of the Irish craic we’ve come to know and love. You can watch it right here.

And if you’re looking for a few more giggles this February, you’ll want to check out the trio of hilarious comedians performing at The Laughter Factory this month.

Welcome back, funny man.
Dhs120. Thu Apr 25-Fri Apr 26, 8pm-10pm. Doors open 7pm. McGettigan’s JLT, Bonnington Hotel, JLT Cluster J (04 378 0800).
