Jason Byrne (born 27 February 1972) is an Irish comedian and radio host born in Ballinteer, Dublin. In August 2008, he made his twelfth Edinburgh Fringe Festival. Byrne currently presents a mid-morning radio show on Phantom FM as well as a comedy panel show called The Byrne Ultimatum on RTE Two. Many of his live routines involve audience participation, and the subsequent humiliation of those audience members by placing them in awkward and stressful situations. He has spoken about his own difficulties dealing with his nose, which he considers 'bent' and would like to replace with a 'better' one.
