Jason Byrne – September Encore Show

Jason Byrne – You Name The Show!

Irish comedy mega-star Jason Byrne returns to New Zealand in September with an encore performance of his critically acclaimed You Name The Show, following a hit NZICF season earlier this year.

Byrne will be bringing his requisite quota of madness once again, but this time he wants you to name his show!

In trademark Byrne-style, the 5-Star “outright king of live comedy”, Comedy Gala and Great Debate favourite, is asking NZ to suggest a show name for his triumphant return to Auckland’s Skycity Theatre on 14 September.

To enter and win $1000 cash, look for the Jason Byrne program ad, postcards and posters Auckland, write your show name suggestion in the blank space, and upload your photo at www.facebook.com/LiveNationComedy! The national winner will be announced onstage at the final show of the tour.

His innate ability to entertain and engage gives rise to the quintessential interactive live show, turning audience participation into a true art form. It is no surprise that Jason is the biggest selling comedian at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

He is highly sought-after for TV appearances in the UK and has a credit list as long as his arm including most recently the 2013 Royal Variety Performance, The Graham Norton Show, Live at the Apollo on BBC1, as well as his own show Anonymous in Ireland. In Australia he is a regular on the prestigious Melbourne International Comedy Festival annual televised galas and The Great Debate, as well as Network Ten’s The Project and This Week Live. In NZ, Byrne has appeared on TV3’s 7Days.

Byrne has hosted three series’ of The Jason Byrne Show (BBC Radio 2) for which he won the prestigious Sony Radio Gold Award for Best Comedy in 2011. He has also released three live DVDs including his latest, Special Eye Live, and continues to tour extensively worldwide.
