Tommy Tiernan:- Crooked Man

****

4 Stars

I can’t believe that it was 12 years ago with this likeable Irish comic walked off the Perrier Award at the Edinburgh Fringe, it’s amazing how time flies.

Tiernan is a little greyer these days than he was then, but once he got into his stride the sense of humour, the stage presence and the twinkling eye is undiminished.

Okay it maybe took a few minutes to click into gear but once he was there buckle in for the ride. Tiernan expounds his views on numerous topics amongst which were useless knowledge, his schooldays, family, a football match religion snoring and wishing to be able to sing. This is just a selection as he chats about many other things too.

He claims at the start that he wanted us and him to leave the gig actually knowing less as the brain can only hold so much information. I’m not sure he achieved that goal however. Having spent an hour in his company, it just reinforced my opinion that Tiernan is a definite comedy star and has been out of my orbit for far, far too long.

Tirenan is only on a short run and tickets are selling fast, so don’t be the one to miss out.
