Ed Byrne makes his hugely anticipated return to Australian Comedy Festivals in April & May 2023.

He brings his hit show (and one that he considers to be his best to date), If I’m Honest, which has toured the length and breadth of UK and Scandinavia over the Covid years on and off! Finally! He gets to bring it to Australia!

Join Ed as he takes a long hard look at himself and tries to decide if he has ANY traits that are worth passing on to his children.

A TV household name, in the past year Ed has appeared on Live At The Apollo (Host, BBC), Mock The Week (BBC), The Pilgrimage (BBC), Top Gear (BBC) and QI (BBC).


Century presents Ed Byrne: If I'm Honest at Malthouse as part of Melbourne International Comedy Festival.

Comedy Festival at Malthouse is supported by our Season Partner, Scotchmans Hill.
