Jason said about NO SHOW:

“I can’t wait to take NO SHOW to the Edinburgh Festival and on the road! NO SHOW is literally me hanging onto the edge of a cliff by my fingernails. as audiences witness me turn a NO SHOW into a show! Using the beautiful, improvised madness that flows between myself and the audiences to create an amazing one-off performance! Comedy without the safety net!”

Jason is known for his lively and hilarious style of comedy that is fueled by his spur-of-the-moment interactions with the audience. His upcoming show ‘NO SHOW’ is no exception, and promises to be an evening of pure laughter and madness. So, get ready to buckle up and brace yourselves for an unforgettable ride filled with side-splitting hilarity. Don’t miss the chance to be part of the fun!

Jason has planned to bring ‘THE PADDY LAMA – SHED TALKS’ to London’s Museum of Comedy for a limited period from April 16th to April 21st, after its successful run at the Edinburgh Festival in 2022. In this one-man play, Jason portrays his father, Paddy, and takes us through his life journey, right from his childhood in Dublin until his days as a worker at Guinness where he blew up the Gas plant in the 80s. The Irish Times rated the show with four stars, however, Paddy, the protagonist of the play, wouldn’t care much about it. The play features Paddy sharing his 80 years of wisdom and wit, directly from his shed in Dublin, leaving the audiences with a heartwarming experience.

Jason said about Paddy Lama:

“I am so excited to bring ‘THE PADDY LAMA – SHED TALKS’ to London this summer. This is a heartwarming, funny, tears down the face, tribute to my dad Paddy Byrne. Everyone in the world has a Paddy in their life. Paddy is your dad, grandad, husband, brother, or son, so if you want to laugh, cry and listen to crap advice, ‘THE PADDY LAMA – SHED TALKS’ will be sure to resurrect some beautiful memories in your hearts.”
