A man walks on to the stage in a blue T-shirt. The heavy Irish needs some getting used to. He smirks at the audience – especially the ones in the first row. “Look at all you ladies, settling down your hair and smoothing your tops. Yes, yes. You’re going to be on TV! But look at the ladies [men] here – they don’t give a sh**t,” he shouts.
The audience grins back. They look nervous. They should be. The man on stage is stand-up comedian Jason Byrne. And Byrne’s signature gigs often see him pull out audience members to pick on. That’s probably what makes him so popular – the video has over one million views.
