The filmed version of my most recent solo show is now online on Next Up Comedy! If you’re not already a subscriber to Next Up Comedy, the first month is free then it’s only £3.50 per month after that for so so many excellent comedy specials. You can access my latest one and my previous […]
Hello!Welcome to the website for all things Tiernan Douieb.
Well not all things. You won’t be able to find what I’ve had for breakfast on here.
Unless it’s a really good breakfast and I post a picture but I’ll probably be too busy eating it.
Here is NEWS:
I was hugely chuffed to be asked to write some looking back at 2017 & 2018 political predictions for politics.co.uk’s Year In Review. Mine is very silly (surprise!) alongside some actually good ones from some very clever types. Have a read and have a very Happy New Year! http://www.politics.co.uk/comment-analysis/2017/12/29/year-in-review-the-hangover-from-2016-drags-on
I was chuffed to be asked by Romesh to be his last guest for 2017 on his Hip Hop Saved My Life podcast. It was a lot of fun to record and I think there’s as much chat about hip hop as there is complaining about other people at live gigs and things like that. […]
I am performing my most recent solo show ‘Miserably Happy’ for the last time at 2 Northdown in Kings Cross on November 19th. I’m also going to be filming it so please come and fill seats so the filming doesn’t look all weird with me just shouting at an empty room. Tickets are £5. https://www.tickettext.co.uk/tiernan-douieb/tiernan-douieb-miserably-happy-19112017/
This is a nice article about the lovely gig I got to do with Frankie Boyle and Francesca Martinez for Lincoln’s Legs. Lincoln is a proper champ of a kid and hopefully the money raised will help keep him mobile. http://www.southwalesargus.co.uk/news/15526469.Frankie_Boyle_gig_raises___35k_to_help_appeal_for_boy__39_s_operation/
Here is an article for the British Comedy Guide about my thoughts on Netflix and Marvel’s The Defenders. It was written while I was at the Edinburgh Fringe so a) I hadn’t seen the show yet and b) I was hoping this would help plug my show. Still though, it was fun to chat to […]
My brother, The Last Skeptik, hosting a radio show for The Quietus’s #DayOfRadio yesterday. I guested on it a bit, as well as Reader and Awate. If you wanna have a listen, you can hear it on Mixcloud right here: https://www.mixcloud.com/the_Quietus/day-of-radio-the-last-skeptik-and-friends-7pm/
Another blog. Still about comedy and EdFringe stuff because that’s what’s on my brain at the mo. Have a read: Mind Fringes
The award winning site and podcast The Quietus are doing a day of live radio on September 1st. It all looks excellent but from 7pm my brother The Last Skeptik is hosting and I’ll be guesting at some point after that too. Tune in, turn on, fall over: http://thequietus.com/articles/23054-quietus-day-of-radio
I did a silly tweet while living in Leith this year for the EdFringe. Turns out, people quite liked it, to the extent the Poke did an article about it. Which is nice. Shopkeepers in Leith have no time for fancy names
Which, as I read that back, sounds like a complaint you might make to your GP. But it’s not. Instead it’s that I haven’t done a blog in ages, so I thought I should. Here you go. ’14 Years A Clown’ 14 Years A Clown
Right, that’s another Edinburgh Fringe over with. Here’s a little post I did about it:
Reviews in Edinburgh this year have been a bit sparse, with lots of acts sticking stars on their posters from weird community radio stations or someone on Twitter who wanted free tickets. So, I’m very chuffed to have a lovely 4* review from Three Weeks, which I think sums up what my show is all […]
Here’s another Edinburgh Fringe Q & A courtesy of the excellent Punchline Comedy. Read some things what I wrote. Come to my show: In the Hot Seat: Tiernan Douieb
This one is a Q&A for Broadway Baby. One question they asked was ‘ask yourself a Q then answer it’. They then don’t specify which one that is on the write up. If I’d known that, I’d have asked something else. Anyway, enjoy guessing which one it is! http://bwb.by/8zn
… Well my show amongst lots of other really actually good ones. Very nice to be included. If you’re at the Edinburgh Fringe, do come along: Punchline’s 2017 Fringe Recommendations
As per every year, last week I did my annual shouting at children who’ve just passed their Leicester cycling proficiency test. This year the Leicester Ride event was at the cathedral which was an amazing setting. Though I’m quite worried I upset the bones of Richard III by shouting fart jokes at him.
Our last Stand Up For Refugees gig, raising money for the very important charity Help Refugees, was at the Brighton Dome this Weds (June 21st). Myself and the brilliant Jen Brister organised and ran seven shows and while we’re still waiting for exact final figures it’s currently looking like we’ve raised over £50k for the charity […]
A little blog I did for HuffPo on the generation divide and voting Labour on Thursday: http://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/tiernan-douieb/general-election_b_16969098.html
