Ed Byrne: Tragedy Plus Time

From the quote attributed to Mark Twain, humour is defined as Tragedy Plus Time. Come and join Ed as he tests that formula by mining the most tragic event in his life for laughs.

Edinburgh Fringe 2023 was a bumper five-star review year for Ed. They came in thick and fast alongside outstanding critical acclaim for this exceptionally funny, ‘Best Reviewed Stand Up Show at Edinburgh 2023’ (British Comedy Guide). 

Century and NZ Comedy Festival are proud to present Ed Byrne: Tragedy Plus Time.

'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 

'Poignant, touching, spiky and laugh-out-loud funny… beautifully written and flawlessly performed.'Edinburgh Reviews
