‘The Man With Three Brains’ is a brand new show from the highly acclaimed and extremely funny, Jason Byrne. Jason has three brains which kick into action when he hits the stage. His left brain scans the audience and room, looking for improv moments. His right brain collates stand-up material and stunts, poised to dish out the funnies at speed. His centre brain is Jason’s coach, pushing him to the limit. This show will peel back the madness inside Jason Byrne’s head to reveal all three brains working individually. The fastest thinking comic around will not only trip himself up, but probably you too. It’s been a busy few years for Byrne.  In addition to his extensive touring worldwide, his Radio 2 show was awarded the UK radio industry’s prestigious Sony Radio Gold Award.  As well as fronting a brand new studio based comedy chat show Jason Byrne’s Snaptastic Show for TV3, he is co-host of Sky’s hugely popular new entertainment programme Wild Things on Sky1.

Look at the Guinness Book Of Hit Singles and you could be forgiven for thinking Smokie’s success story was a 1970s phenomenon.  After all, 11 of their 14 British hits came in that eventful musical decade.  However, their massive success story has continued to flourish around the globe including Scandinavia, South Africa, Germany and even China.  Smokie are a band which has sold out tours and gained platinum records in four decades – 70s, 80s, 90s and the present day. Smokie first got together at school in Yorkshire in the late 60s. After going through various names and styles, they signed with Mickie Most’s then ultra-hot RAK label and found themselves chartbound.  Songs like ‘If You Think You Know How To  Love Me’, ‘Don’t Play Your Rock’n’Roll To Me’, ‘It’s Your Life’ and ‘Oh Carol’  (all Top 10 entries) became radio staples and gave Smokie their ticket to travel the world. The sound was a combination of hook-laden songs and Smokie’s distinctive but unashamedly Stateside-influenced soft-rock harmonies, their secret being their vocal blend – a rasping, emotion-drenched lead set against melodic harmonies that produces an unique, bittersweet result.
