Always Be Comedy (2 shows): The Tommyfield pub, Kennington, London, 2019
I watched Ed Byrne play Always Be Comedy in April 2019 and June 2019. Preparing for his new Edinburgh Fringe show and tour, the work in progress material about how he thinks his children are developing into him was polished, very clever and extremely funny. His bu Byrne’s twenty-five years of experience shone through as he displayed his usual energy, perfect comic timing and delivery to a packed crowd.
Byrne is a master at delivering a punchline and a hilarious story from a series of random objections built up into major grippes. He is a great whinger and because the audience feel as though they know him from his extremely endearing stage presence, they are on his side and with him all the way. It was a pleasure to see Byrne perform in an intimate room as he is one of the greats.
