Following early success on the stand-up scene, the 50-year-old has reinvented himself as a skilled chat show host with his eponymous RTE Saturday night slot The Tommy Tiernan Show. He has also shown himself to be a talented actor, appearing as Gerry on much-loved Channel 4 sitcom Derry Girls, a role in which he displays an ability to play the straight man amid the chaos going on around him.
In an interview with The Guardian published earlier this week, Tommy revealed that he is still frightened by doing stand-up comedy, despite performing for 25 years. In the lengthy chat, Tommy gets somewhat philosophical, saying: 'If I look at my career so far as a mouthful of sweets, there’s more bitter ones in there than I would have liked. But I know that I’m excited about getting on stage tonight. And that is a nice place to be.'
That's just a snippet of a very revealing chat with journalist Brian Logan and you can read it in full here.
Tickets for Tommy Tiernan's Vicar Street shows will start at €40 and will be released on Monday, March 9.
