Tommy Tiernan is without doubt, our most influential comedian and social satirist. He leads and others follow. He has finally seen sense and is doing a world tour of Kilkenny.
According to his own PR machine, Tommy has lost his marbles and is set to embark on his very first World Tour of Kilkenny. Get yourselves prepared for four nights of pure madness and craic.
Tommy’s mastery of stand-up allows him to take risks other comedians dare not. Through hilarious storytelling and a high energy, non-apologetic delivery he continually challenges his audience who can be confident they are in safe hands. To see Tiernan live is a rare treat, as his stories unfold and themes are elaborated his performance mesmerises as his lyrical way with words make you laugh harder than you’d ever believe possible.
Tommy Tiernan has the vocabulary of a poet, the soul of a maverick & the passion of an evangelist.
He plays the The Bridgebrook Arms, Thomastown on October 2; Gowran Park October 4, Graignamanagh Community Centre, Graignamanagh on October 12 and the Lyrath Estate Hotel on October 13.
He is also doing world tours of Leitrim, Kildare, Carlow and Fermanagh. And after that he’s off to Australia and NewZealand.
Tommy has the highest selling DVD sales in Ireland. ‘Cracked: Live at Vicar Street’ went straight to number 1 in the 1st week of release and will reach Four times Platinum Status.
He is second only to U2 when it comes to live ticket sales in Ireland and his three sell-out shows in the Marquee, Cork brought in 12,000 people and that has never been done by any other artists.
