147 - Jason Byrne (Live at the Edinburgh Fringe)

November 4th, 2015

Episode 174 of 245 episodes

Introducing Jason Byrne to an audience is like dropping a vitamin tablet into a glass of water; his shows are a masterclass in improvised mayhem. He talks here about the challenges of translating that madness onto TV, examines the structure of a particularly memorable incident in real depth, and also discusses the times when the show hasn’t catalysed as he wanted.
