ED Byrne’s latest stand-up show caused two members of his British audience to faint, but not as a result of side-splitting laughter.

The self-declared Mock the Week ‘semi-regular’ tweeted after the incident, which happened during his Roaring Forties performance in Brighton last night.

He also said: “The woman from St.John’s ambulance says the people fainted because I was talking about getting an injection. Oops!”

Byrne has been touring the UK since July and the show is running until mid-December.
