‘Tommy Tiernan: 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.

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.

A feral philosopher king.” – The Scotsman

Tiernan can drop in turns of phrase so exquisite that you could call them a sound installation and enter them for the Turner prize.” – The Times
