Jason Byrne in Dubai

Looking a little further ahead, McGettigan’s JLT & The Baggott are proud to present Jason Byrne Live on 21st & 22nd April 2016.

We’re delighted to have critically acclaimed Irish comedian Jason Byrne return to Dubai for 2 fantastic shows in The Baggot on Thursday 21 and Friday 22nd  April 2016 as part of his ’20 Years A Clown’ tour. Jason first travelled to Dubai to take part in the inaugural McGettigan’s Comedyfest and headlined the 4 day comedy marathon. Demand for the comic was so high that he returned to Dubai to perform sellout shows at The Baggot last year. He returns with his brand new tour celebrating 20 years at the fringe which has received rave reviews.

The brilliant comic puts on a unique and interactive performance that is guaranteed to have the audience in stitches. Don’t miss this opportunity to see ‘The outright king of live comedy’ The Times.
