Win tickets to see Ed Byrne

Comedian Ed Byrne is stopping off in Scunthorpe as part of his extensive UK tour next month.

Monday, 25th November 2013, 9:05 am

The Irish comic will be bringing his latest live show to the Baths Hall on Tuesday 10th December.

And the Standard has a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky reader.

Ed’s stand-up career began during his college years at Strathclyde University in Glasgow.

It wasn’t long before he’d quit his studies completely and started up a small comedy club in Glasgow.

From there he moved to London, where he started all over again with open spots and short sets on the club circuit, honing his material and developing the curmudgeonly and nerdy persona we’ve all come to know.

Ed is a mainstay on television screens featuring regularly on popular shows like Have I Got News For You and Mock The Week along with many others.

A self-confessed ‘miserable old git’ since the tender young age of 23, Ed Byrne is now in his 40s.

While for others this might result in a crisis that prompts the purchase of a sportscar, Ed embraces middle age with open arms.

Join him as he truly comes of age and gives out his clarion cry: “I am in my 40s - hear me roar.”

To be in with a chance of winning a pair of tickets to the show at the Baths Hall, simply answer the following question.
