Ed Byrne: Tragedy Plus Time

Main House Theatre  |  Friday 19 January



Humour is defined as Tragedy Plus Time – Mark Twain

Ed Byrne returns to The Maltings to test that formula by mining the most tragic event in his life, for laughs.

“Hilarious, extremely dark, profoundly touching and resolutely unsentimental. Ed Byrne has plumbed the very depths of his soul and found something verging on greatness."
★★★★★ Rolling Stone
“This is no misery memoir, Byrne is too talented a comic for that.”
★★★★★  The Arts Desk
“Poignant, touching, spiky and laugh-out-loud funny… beautifully written and flawlessly performed.”
★★★★★ Edinburgh Reviews
"Side-splitting... Byrne is comedy gold."
