The World Is Full Of Idiots, Let's Live In Space

My second Standup Special is now available for download!


Recorded at The Phoenix in London on 17th January 2016, 'The World's Full Of Idiots, Let's Live In Space' is Tiernan Douieb's second filmed special. The show is inspired by astronaut Commander Chris Hadfield's autobiography, all about his life training to go into space. Hadfield says that after spending 6 months on the International Space Station it gave him a great sense of just how much the world is all one place and we are all one people living together on it.

In this hour of stand-up, professional cheery misanthrope Tiernan Douieb wonders why we have to send people quite so far away to have that realisation, and just how feasible is it to fire a large portion of the world into space until they behave? An hour of jokes on politics, free speech, racism, terrorism, global warming and other fun lighthearted comedy subjects.

"it’s a really lovely show, really good. A really good show." – Mark Thomas

"The show is funny, but more than that it’s interesting and, actually, a little bit life-affirming." - Giggle Beats
