TOMMY TIERNAN - OUT OF THE WHIRLWIND
Now entering his 20th year as a stand up comedian, having won every award going and still as passionate as ever about the adventure of storytelling and comedy, Irelands number one comedian is also starting to take some very exciting risks. There’s no manners on him, profound, dark, and silly too, his performance mesmerises in a way that is joyful, uplifting, inspirational and most importantly always breathtakingly funny.
There is something zeitgeisty about Tommy. He taps in to the wider consciousness and manages to express what some people feel deeply but might not have an opportunity to express themselves while always retaining his great charm and roguishness that allows him to say things others just couldn’t get away with.
“Tommy Tiernan tore it apart and stole the show with some intense and painfully funny storytelling.” The Irish Times
“There is a spirituality to Tiernan that makes him stand out. The church’s loss is comedy’s gain…Imperious” The Standard
“Emphatic comic power” The Guardian
