“Tiernan has the comic ferocity resembling that of Billy Connolly”
Multi Award Winning Irish Superstar Comic, Tommy Tiernan, returns to Australia in March/April 2011 following his hugely successful sold out Australian tour in 2010. In fact, due to his popularity in Australia the new tour has almost doubled in size to the last!
A fearless force of energy, Tiernan is one of the few comics to take his audience on a genuine emotional journey elevating the soul through rich, honest laughs. Tiernan has an instinctive way of crafting words to bring his anecdotes to vivid life and make the jokes truly resonate. Standing at 5ft 9inches tall in his socks and weighing in at 78kg, this Gemini contrarian is back with his irreverent mix of the wholesome and the totally inappropriate. Performing like a homeless preacher high on the wine of laughter, Tiernan promises both the sacred and the profane wrapped up in a spirit of recklessness.
“When the Irish comedian Tommy Tiernan first walks – no, bounds- to the microphone, he is a tornado that lasts the night”
Sydney Morning Herald
Tiernan’s shows are high intensity, high octane, a no holds barred roller coaster ride as Tommy continues his constant interrogation of the big ideas – Sex, Religion, Family through the lens of his quirks, personal demons and sense of outrage.
“A Gaelic Eddie Izzard”
Los Angeles Times
Tommy has the highest selling DVD sales in Ireland and is second only to U2 when it comes to live performance ticket sales there. His DVD “Cracked: Live At Vicar Street” went straight to #1 in the week it was released and has reached four times Platinum Status. “Loose” also went straight to #1 and reached eight times Platinum status while “Jokerman: Tommy Tiernan in America” and “Ok Baby” also went to number 1.
“Tiernan is another bright, original and refreshingly funny import”
New York Times
His observations about life are offbeat and thoughtful but most importantly, he’s a tremendous storyteller. He will challenge, he will engage and he will definitely entertain.
To spend time in this man’s company is an unmissable treat.
