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.
2 people in the audience in Brighton fainted tonight. I had no idea I was that good looking.

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.
