his performances mesmerise in a way that is joyful, uplifting,
inspirational and most importantly breathtakingly funny. 

"Watching Tommy Tiernan perform is like seeing a piece of physical theatre
from an angry priest…full of delightful and compelling imagery”

“Never less than mesmerizing… mind-bendingly funny”

“Bright, original and refreshingly funny”

" Not many comedians generate a sense of danger,
or devilment, quite like Tommy Tiernan.”
