ACCLAIMED Irish stand up Ed Byrne will be heading to town on Wednesday for one night only as he continues the second leg of his biggest ever tour.

It follows his sell-out Edinburgh Fringe show Spoiler Alert.

On Wednesday, May 9, the dad-of-two of Mock the Week fame will be heading to St Helens Theatre Royal with his new show.

He says: “I originally intended to call the show ‘I’ll Millennial You in a Minute’, but my promoter considered the title ‘off-puttingly baffling’.

“That’s my own chainsaw in the photo, by the way.”

Ed explores the thin line between righteous complaining and brat-like whining and asks: “Are we right to be fed up, or are we spoiled?

“Where I think we’re not acting spoiled enough is in the political arena.

“We have a tendency to accept what’s happening and that’s where we should be acting more entitled: we are literally entitled to the government we want.

“We’re spoiled in all these little ways, but not spoiled enough.”

Spoiler Alert also continues a theme that he’s tackled in previous shows, that of his gradual shift from being a working-class Dubliner to a fully paid-up rural-residing member of the middle classes.
