Critically acclaimed comedian Jason Byrne is coming back to Dubai next month!

The Irish comedian, described as “unmissable” by London’s Evening Standard newspaper, first visited the UAE last year to headline ComedyFest, the four-day laughter marathon held at McGettigan’s JLT in January.

Jason was the biggest-selling comedian at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and his intelligent brand of high-energy lunacy have scored him a number of accolades, including the coveted Perrier Newcomer Award and Perrier Award nominations.

His TV credits include The Channel 4 Comedy Gala and the BBC’s Live at the Apollo, Father Figure and The Jason Byrne Show, which earned him the Sony Radio Gold Award for Best Comedy in 2011.

With a growing international profile, Jason’s performed in New York, Boston, Hong Kong, Singapore, Brussels, Milan, Paris and Australia as well as right here in the UAE.

You can catch him at new live entertainment venue The Baggot, an extension of McGettigan’s JLT which has been designed and styled to house concerts, comedy shows and screenings of major sport events.
