News: ‘No editing and no preplanning’ – expect the unpredictable when comedian Jason Byrne visits

Another Lincolnshire Highlights news story…

Jason Byrne is Wrecked But Ready according to the title of his latest show.

After 23 consecutive years of touring it’s hardly surprising he’s a bit wrecked but he is still ready to serve up 31 unpredictable nights on tour across the country, including a date with Lincoln in November.

Audiences are told to expect all the usual spontaneous Jason mayhem.

One of the things about Jason’s energetic live show is that no two nights are ever the same.

The comedian thrives on the unpredictability of his stand-up. “My energy is based on the audience. I feed off them. I include them in everything I talk about, and that’s how I make the show different every night.

“There is no editing and no preplanning. That gives me such a thrill.”

 

“I’m 47 now, and as you get older, they say that the way to stop Alzheimer’s is to keep your brain stimulated. As long as I keep gigging, I’ll definitely keep my brain stimulated!” adds Jason, who is also a judge on Ireland’s Got Talent and has a second children’s novel out in the autumn.

“I love audience participation because unpredictable things always happen. The great thing is that audiences are not trained and not used to being on stage.

“I do a simple thing where I get three guys up onstage. One talks about his job, the second translates using a made-up sign language and the third explains it using interpretive dance. So you have got a guy talking into a microphone who has never done it, a guy doing sign language who has never done it and a guy doing interpretive dance who has never done it.

“Because they don’t have a clue about what they’re doing, it’s so funny.”

Jason is well known for his stage outfits

Jason, who will go on stage for Wrecked But Ready wearing a typically brazen outfit of dinner jacket on top and underpants on the bottom, is also an improviser.

He adds: “Improvising keeps me stimulated. I don’t have to rattle out the same stuff every night.

“I can do both. I can do an hour of scripted material or an hour of improvised stuff. It’s a lovely feeling when people react to something I’ve written, but I get great joy out of everything.”

For example, he has a routine about Britain’s inability to leave the EU.

He explains: “I imagine that Britain is like a little girl misbehaving because she won’t leave. Brussels says to her ‘OK, Britain, what the hell is going on?’ I fall to my knees and say, ‘We’re going to stay.’ ‘OK.’ ‘Actually, were going to leave!’

“I also imagine Boris Johnson talking to Brussels, and he keeps saying mad stuff like, ‘I like monkeys’. If you turn politicians into children, you realise that they’re the same thing!”

Jason Byrne: Wrecked But Ready at Lincoln Drill Hall on Friday, November 8 (8pm). Tickets: £19.50 and £24.50. Box office: 01522 873894 or online
