This is not your everyday comic. Older, wiser, calmer (and after being fitted with a hearing aid, infinitely quieter), Brendon's energy is still enticing. His turn of phrase is coarse yet oddly eloquent, whilst remaining fully accessible and intensely loveable. Never pompous and ever self-deprecating he just somehow seems to get away with murder. Not so much a ?truth-sayer? but a traditionally harmless and inclusive warm-hearted court jester. His influence is ubiquitous throughout the stand-up world. Often replicated but never matched, his shows aren't just extended sets, Burns specialises in creating experiences: forever experimenting with the form and throwing himself new challenges.

Hasn't Heard of You Either - T0222629147

This is not your everyday comic. Older, wiser, calmer (and after being fitted with a hearing aid, infinitely quieter) Brendon's energy is still enticing. His turn of phrase is coarse yet oddly eloquent, whilst remaining fully accessible and intensely loveable. Never pompous and ever self-deprecating he just somehow seems to get away with murder. Not so much an "edgy truth-sayer" but a traditionally harmless and inclusive warm-hearted court jester. His influence is ubiquitous throughout the stand up world. Often replicated but never matched, his shows aren't just extended sets, Burns specialises in creating experiences: forever experimenting with the form and throwing himself new challenges. Ask around and you'll find every comic on the international scene has a funny Brendon Burns story. A, "They were there the night he..." tale. Sure he's critically acclaimed, a comic's comic and something of a cult figure. But, above all, he's...well... interesting.

Home Stretch Baby - T240382778

Hey London, as I'm really enjoying getting older, I'd like to filter the audience somewhat. I would just like to stress that in my show there will be no: 1. Transparent pandering to pseudo pundits. 2. Tedious deconstruction... Or will there? Do you see how clever I'm being? Do you? Recognising how clever I'm being makes you nearly as clever as me. Let's find somewhere quiet so we can grow ironic beards and w*nk into them. 3. Talking about what I don't do... Ah, bugger. Warning! May contain comedy.

Y'Know - Love 'n' God 'n' Metaphysics 'n' Shit - T1782755086

A comic love letter, and a preamble through the Edinburgh Comedy Award Winner’s brilliantly insane mind, this show has a giant twist in its tail... as always, nothing is as it seems. Hilarious, heartwarming... don’t miss it.

Fresh from his triumphant run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, and winning the 2007 If.comedy award, Brendon Burns is taking to the road. Neither politically correct nor incorrect, Burns is a slap in the face that refuses to be defined, and shocks and entertains in the same breath. Two hours of hilarity from Britain’s most controversial comedian. Contains material some might find offensive.

Under Educated European Tour - T1935606448

For the last sixteen years, Brendon Burns has stormed audiences the world over. His stage presence is electric, his material provocative and his insight surprisingly subtle. He uses his confrontational and up-front style of comedy to capture his audience with a proverbial slap in the face. He is neither politically correct nor incorrect making him a rare socio-political comic willing to oppose all schools of thought. With this in mind, it’s no surprise that Burns has been compared to such legends as: Lenny Bruce, George Carlin, Sam Kinison and Bill Hicks.
