Brendon Burns

Last night I went to see Brendon Burns at a packed Maggie Mays. The triumphant winner of The if.Comedy Award at this year's Edinburgh Festival played for around two hours.

He started off telling us how winning that award had made his cmedy life different, then went on to discuss his ill-fated stint presenting the I'm a Celebrity show on ITV2.

Properly edgy, a lot of his material centred on race, religion, regional stereotypes and the sexes. So much so that a large chunk of the evening was devoted to him feilding heckles from several inebriated women in the audience.

Here he is on an Irish TV show a couple of years ago.
