Ed Byrne – Different Class
I have to admit I am a huge comedy fan. That aside, I got mixed responses to the mention Ed Byrnes new DVD [that I bought in HMV for 10.99] which I found a little surprising…. If you are the type that when Billy Connolly walks out on stage and says hello and you immediately laugh… then you haven’t a comic bone in your body you are merely a comic sheep.
If however you like Bill Hicks and Dylan Moran then we may be heading on the right tracks….;)
This is Ed Byrnes second DVD. And I love it. Whats better is that its €10.99 and if you have the time the extras [unusually well worth the mention] include a very worthwhile comedy buffs comentary chat alongside Jimmy Carr where they refer to the show now and again – but more they give a better insight into the joke and the comics mind. I suggest strongly you watch this first.
Funny thing for Byrne this is only his second DVD – from a chap who’s been on the circuit for over 16 years…. quite surprising.
On a side note… I did end up on what one can only describe as on the absolute batter the day before our big day [3 years less 3 days ago in the slaughterd lamb and then wrights for the record] – funny as you will never ever know and in hindsight not the greatest idea I ever came up with… but I will say Mr Byrne is an absolute gentleman and one of lifes really nice guys.
Here’s a little taster of the genius if you haven’t seen hime in a while….
