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.
