Jason talked to Rebecca and Brendan about how lockdown has a bit of a whirlwind. First of all he said he lost all his gigs during lockdown and started doing sketches at home because he was a little bit bored.

These sketches however weren't without their own controversy. For one of these sketches he dressed up as fitness influencer Joe Wicks and drew a six pack on his stomach! However he might have drawn another ''appendage'' on himself which resulted in the star not only getting his TikTok post deleted but his entire account being deleted by the social media platform.

Byrne spoke candidly about his recent heart surgery and how he had stents put in after he got a tight pain in his chest while on a run in Portmarnock. He said the procedure was done in 30 minutes, the doctors discovered that the comedy star had three blocked arteries but he is fine now we were all happy to hear!

Byrne has a podcast encouraging people to talk about their mental health and it is called ''Mind Your Loaf''. Check it out here!

The funny man has upcoming gigs in Vicar Street on the Dublin Friday 18th & Saturday 19th Feb 2022.
