Jason Byrne Wrecked but Ready (Ireland)

Live Nation

Jason Byrne Wrecked but Ready (IRL)

Jason Byrne returns with his brand-new show, Wrecked but Ready.

After 23 consecutive years Jason is wrecked, but he is, as ever ready, (which is a battery, but he’s more Duracell than Eveready). The past year, in particular, has been extremely testing for the wrecked Jason, but despite all this he’s waiting to spill it out on stage.

No one show is the same. Expect all the usual spontaneous fun. Come along and witness ‘the outright King of live comedy’ (The Times, UK).

'Consistently brilliant. ★★★★★' Metro (UK)

'Unmissable.' The Evening Standard (UK)


Suitable for audiences 16+
