Full biography of Ed Byrne

Ed Byrne’s Background

Ed has enjoyed huge critical and popular success in the UK and Ireland with hit tours and sold out runs at the Edinburgh Fringe and in the West End. He is also firmly established on the international circuit, regularly performing at Montreal’s Just For Laughs and in front of audiences from Paris to Las Vegas and Sydney.

He is also a regular fixture on television and radio, presenting shows from What’s So Funny on BBC Radio 4 Extra and appearing on panel shows such as Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Never Mind the Buzzcocks, and Have I Got News for You and has also appeared several times on The Graham Norton Show.

Byrne has also enjoyed success on both the big and small screens with roles in titles such as Are You Ready For Love and I Could Never Be Your Woman as well as television appearances on shows such as ITV/LWT Christmas Day Panto, Aladdin, and ITV sitcom Sam’s Game.

His film acting roles include a supporting role in RAT, a cameo in I Could Never Be Your Woman, a co-lead in Are You Ready For Love and the lead in Zemanovaload.

Not limited to the screen, Ed’s impressive theatre work has included the lead role in Kings Of The Road which played Edinburgh Festival before transferring to Dublin’s Ambassador’s Theatre, Greenwich Festival and Winchester Theatre Royal.

Ed is the perfect comedian for event hosting, after dinner stand-up and as a professional compère. His conversational delivery always charms audiences and his relaxed style disguises a sharp wit. Whether railing against pop culture or politics, or observing life as a married man and father, Ed wins the crowd with his gentle-natured rants.

He was also the voice of The Carphone Warehouse adverts on the television and radio.
