ROLL UP, roll up... Comedian Jason Byrne’s circus-themed stand-up show is coming to town tonight (Thursday).

Edinburgh’s top-selling comedian appears at the Alban Arena, in St Albans, with his new show Cirque du Byrne.

Brought to you by the ringmaster of tomfoolery himself, Cirque du Byrne promises to be an anarchy-packed show of acrobatic proportions, taking in deviously-constructed comic spectacle, on-stage farce, audience interaction and daring comic stunts.

Jason said: “It seems loads of comedians are starting to wear suits and becoming really successful.

“I like to be a bit unique so I’ve splashed out on a ringmaster’s outfit for my new show and I’ll be going on tour to make the money back.”

Jason’s accolades include Perrier Award nominations and, most recently, the Sony Radio Gold Award for Best Comedy for his Radio 2 sitcom The Jason Byrne Show.

The Arena show starts at 8pm and tickets are £15.
