In Outside Looking In, Ed reflects on everything from life as a father and husband to feminism and transgenderism.

As an observational stand up, Ed Byrne is unrivalled.

Wherever he performs, be it the Edinburgh Festival, on the International Circuit or a UK tour it is always to capacity audiences.

He is consistently at the top of his game and produces time and time again not only fabulously funny shows but shows which critically are highly acclaimed.

He enjoyed six straight sell-out years at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and was nominated for the Perrier Award in 1998.

He has also released three high-acclaimed live DVDs, Pedantic and Whimsical (2006), Different Class (2009) and Crowd Pleaser (2011).

Ed’s television credits are also far reaching.

Notable appearances include Mock The Week, Have I Got News For You, The Graham Norton Show, The One Show, Live At The Apollo (all BBC) and Comic Relief Bake Off 2015, which saw Ed hosting one of the studio programmes as well as presenting the supporting Appeals VT, filmed in Uganda.

A future combining a TV career and his passion for the outdoors is in sights as he has now broken into factual presenting.

He continues to be a serious outdoors enthusiast and recently climbed Mont Blanc (Europe’s highest mountain) for the second time.

The past two years have seen appearances on Dangerous Roads (BBC2), Volcano Live (BBC2) and he has co-presented a three-part series with his friend and fellow Irish funny man Dara O’Briain, Dara & Ed’s Big Adventure, which aired on BBC2 earlier this year.

Ed also writes a regular column for The Great Outdoor Magazine and will be fitting in as much Munro Bagging as he possibly can whilst on tour.

Ed Byrne is at Sheffield City hall on Saturday, February 6 at 8pm.

Tickets are £19 from the box office on 0114 2789789 or online at www.sheffieldcityhall.co.uk
