Irish Comedian Ed Byrne has accidentally caused several people who were attending his latest stand-up show to faint.

Two people fainted at Ed Byrne's Roaring Forties stand-up show last night (October 17) in Brighton according to a tweet sent out by 41-year-old Irish comedian.

The Mock the Week regular said: "Two people in the audience in Brighton fainted tonight. I had no idea I was that good looking," the Mock The Week regular joked on Twitter.

"The woman from St.John's ambulance says the people fainted because I was talking about getting an injection. Oops!"

The comedian has been touring the UK since July and is due to continue the show through to mid-December. No dates have been announced for Ireland as of yet.
