Ed Byrne – Outside, Looking In

This superb Irish comic has been moaning about life's little annoyances since his early 20s and, now into his fifth decade on this earth, he's not about to stop. Ed Byrne's latest tour 'Outside, Looking In' hits the Shepherd's Bush Empire in 2016, but he's being pretty vague about what it'll contain – he just promises it'll be funny.

St Patrick's Day Parade and Festival

The Irish are ace at partying. So good, in fact, they even have a special untranslatable phrase – the craic – to describe their unique brand of conviviality. They manage to have a brilliant time in the most unpromising locations – your typical Irish church hall is gloomier than Eeyore.

People, Places and Things

Transfers to the Wyndham's Theatre for a limited 12 week West End run from 15th March. The set is white-tiled, Dettol-clean – a urinal or two would not look out of place there – but instead what we are greeted with is Chekhov. The woman on stage is playing Nina from ‘The Seagull’, yet quickly she begins to flail and plummet.

Oh I love Suede, I think Brad Anderton has got a terrific voice, a bit annoying sometimes but generally good. In Britpop I also like Shed 7 when they did Go For Gold.
