One of the UK’s leading comedians is bringing show to The Core at Corby Cube next week.

Ed Byrne brings his brand new showOutside, Looking In, to The Core at Corby Cube on Friday, December 4.

The comedian will be reflecting on everything from life as a father and husband to feminism and transgenderism.

Ed said: “I think that people are very fascinated by comedians and what they do and how it works, so there is a lot of that in the show.

“There’s even a small bit about doing interviews because I’ve always got to make sure I don’t say the wrong thing on the hoof.

“But anything like that that happens in my life, I’ll always try and find a humourous way of writing it and then putting in the show.

“It is probably the most personal show that I have written and fortunately it is going very well.

“The new tour, which starts in September and goes through to May, has been drawn up to only go to the venues where the people will come and the venues that I have performed at previously and like appearing at.”

He is always happy with the reaction that he gets from people who see him on the street.

Ed said: “I think some comedians feel the pressure to be funny.

“I’m lucky because people look at me and start laughing.

“It’s lovely to be able to make people laugh without telling a joke.

“But there is a pressure when you do a show. In the old days, you asked if there were reviewers in. Now, everyone is a reviewer with the way social media has taken off.”

Ed Byrne takes to The Core’s stage at 8pm. Tickets are priced at £19.50 and can be booked by calling the ticket office on 01536 470 470 or visit www.thecorecorby.com.

Ed is also returning to the same venue on Wednesday, January 13.
