Ed Byrne is laughing through grief: How the death of his brother inspired a critically acclaimed show

Stephen chats to Mock the Week star, Ed Byrne, as he shares the deeply personal story behind his new comedy show, “Tragedy Plus Time”. Ed opens up about the death of his brother Paul, and how his death became the catalyst for Ed’s exploration of grief and humour.

Reflecting on the moments leading up to Paul’s death and the complexities of sibling relationships, Ed and host Stephen Rumford delve into the healing power of laughter amidst sorrow.

Discover the profound impact of loss, the importance of cherishing our loved ones, and the enduring wisdom shared by Ed’s late brother: “You can be as serious as you want but there always has to be a joke.”
