Ep. 211 - Jason Byrne

Jason Byrne is the Irish stand-up comedian described by the Times as “the outright king of live comedy”. He is a favourite of the stand-up circuit and is often the biggest selling comedian at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where he has been nominated for both the Perrier Newcomer Award and The Perrier Award itself. His TV credits include Live at the Apollo on the BBC, Comedy Annual on ITV, Dave’s One Night Stand, The Channel 4 Comedy Gala, John Bishop’s Only Joking on Sky and Anonymous on RTE2. On radio he’s been on Just a Minute, And The Winner Is..., Father Figure and he has hosted three series of The Jason Byrne Show on BBC Radio 2, for which he won the Sony Radio Gold Award for Best Comedy. His latest show, about his father, Paddy Lama - Shed Talks, will be running alongside his stand up show at the 2022 Fringe. Jason Byrne is guest number 211 on My Time Capsule and chats to Michael Fenton Stevens about the five things he'd like to put in a time capsule; four he’d like to preserve and one he’d like to bury and never have to think about again .
