Tommy Tiernan’s brand new show Tomfoolery sees the now 50 year old comedian back onstage with an exhilarating mix of the highly personal and flamboyant storytelling that audiences have come to love. Renowned for his no holds barred approach to the art of stand-up, this promises to be a delightful trip through the mouth and mind of one the worlds most respected comic performers.
Age has not dulled him, in fact he seems more full of fire and mischief now than he ever was. He wonders aloud about God, sex and family in a way that seems equally sacred and profane at the same time. His stories and ideas are as full of drama as they are of wit and fun. His legendary record-breaking ticket sales extend across the world. The Star of Channel 4’s hit show Derry Girls and Live at the Apollo (BBC) and the host of his own highly critically praised improvised chat show on Ireland’s RTE 1.
The star of Channel 4’s hit show Derry Girls, Live at the Apollo (BBC) and the host of his own highly critically praised improvised chat show on Ireland’s RTE 1. Tommy's mastery of stand-up allows him to take risks other comedians dare not. Through hilarious story telling and a high energy, non-apologetic delivery he continually challenges his audience who can be confident they are in safe hands. To see him live is a rare treat, as his stories unfold and themes are elaborated his performance is mesmerising and his lyrical way with words make you laugh harder than you'd ever believe possible. 'Intense and painfully funny storytelling' (Irish Times) 'When the bearded storyteller aimed for the funny bone he was imperious' (Evening Standard) '... a sermon-like delivery halfway between home hearth and hellfire' (The Independent) 'Tiernan confirms how good traditional stand-up can be' (The Guardian).
