The Dublin man was runner up ‘So You Think You’re Funny?’ awards at the Edinburgh festival in 1996 and went on to receive Perrier nominations in 1998 and 2001.
The funnyman has hosted and appeared on various radio shows such as a BBC Radio 2 show where hewon a Sony Gold Award for Best Comedy in 2011. He also worked on a comedy panel show called The Byrne Ultimatum on RTÉ Two.
