COMEDIAN Jason Byrne has confirmed a show at Salford Lowry as he prepares to celebrate 25 years of touring.

The 31-date UK tour kicks off in Brighton on September 24, 2020 and culminates in Canterbury on November 28, 2020, with a date at The Lowry on October 23.

A spokesperson said: "Jason has learnt over the past few years that we all need to ‘play’ a bit more in our lives. With this in mind, Jason will do what he does best: connect with his audience in a way that no other comic can. Expect the Irish funnyman to invite - or drag, as it has been known in the past – people up onto the stage and make a 'holy show of them', as they’d say in Ireland.

"Jason’s ‘Audience Precipitation’ tour will be a laugh-out-loud, must-see show with a light drizzle of audience participation… ooohhh, clever that."

A strong presence on both stage and screen, Jason’s TV credits include: Live at the Apollo (BBC1), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1), The John Bishop Show (BBC1), Father Figure (BBC1), Ireland’s Got Talent (Virgin) and Wild Things (Sky1).

Tickets go on sale on Friday, March 6 at 10am. Pre-sale on Thursday, March 5 at 10am.
