The Tommy Tiernan Show

Tommy Tiernan has our hearts.

One of the most successful and well-liked Irish comedians of all time, fans have been loving the Tommy Tiernan Show since it first hit our telly boxes back in 2017.

Largely considered to be the best chatshow on Irish TV, the Tommy Tiernan Show returned for its fourth series in early January of this year. Once again, the series saw Tommy chat with a range of guests without any prior preparation or knowledge as to who might appear on the couch.

And it’s fair to say that people are very impressed – praising the Donegal man for his superb interview skills.

Tommy spoke to a number of different guests throughout the series, some very well-known, some less so – with highlights including the likes of President Michael D. Higgins, Glen Hansard and more recently Róisín Murphy.

However, it was the interview with recovering heroin-addict James Leonard that really resonated with viewers, with many dubbing it “one of the most moving in a series of moving interview by Tommy Tiernan”.

Last night saw actor Colm Meaney step onto the stage for the last episode of the series and he was well able for the cheeky banter.

Taking to Twitter, viewers were quick to voice their disappointment that the show has come to a close – looking ahead to the next series already.

The legendary comedian won’t be resting on his laurels though having recently announced a run of 14 shows at Vicar Street.

Currently touring the UK, he’ll bring his brand new show Tomfoolery to Dublin in January and February 2021. Tickets cost €40 and go on sale this Monday at 9am from Ticketmaster.

And judging by the nation’s overwhelming love for all things Tommy Tiernan, tickets are going to fly off the shelves in no time, so make sure to set your alarms well ahead of time.
