FHM mixed up Ed Byrne and Jason Byrne... and Ed Byrne was not impressed

Morto for you, FHM.

And this is Jason Byrne.

Despite sharing a surname and occupation, they probably couldn’t be more different.

Unfortunately, it looks as though FHM got a little mixed up, though.

Yesterday, FHM published an interview with Ed Byrne – a bloke test, to be more precise.

Ed Byrne then politely informed the magazine that he had never actually spoken to them and that they were probably mixing him up with fellow comic Jason Byrne.

Jason Byrne later confirmed as much.

And so, FHM acknowledged their mistake and apologised.

Just kidding!

They actually went on the offensive and accused Ed Byrne of lying.


At this point, Ed Byrne got real with them and rather excellently worked the word “dolts” into the conversation.

One telltale sign that FHM might have interviewed Jason Byrne?

This reference to being ginger…

Yes, because I am a redhead my hair grows kind of weird on my chest. It looks like some kid’s just done arts and craft on me.

FHM have since removed the interview from their website, but have yet to delete their tweets.

Morto for all involved.
