Jason Byrne in Dubai

We preview Irish comedian's JLT gig

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.
