Stand-up institution Ed Byrne brings the full force of his talent to bear in this barnstorming show. 'Crowd Pleaser' finds Byrne navigating the treacherous landscape of family and TV celebrity, all the while trying to stay true to his nerdy side.
Richard is in a frivolous mood with this show about daftness, whether the term cool comedian is an oxymoron, bouncing joyously on the sofa and how Herring's whole career is a failed attempt to top a piece of visual slapstick comedy he came up with at 16. Follow Richard: @Herring1967
Ed's hilarious line in sharp observational commentary allows him to deconstruct the social stratum with surgical precision. Age-appropriate fashions, music, and time travel are among the issues that threaten to divide us - yet we shall be united in laughter by this class-act of a show.
