I was on Moneybox Live on Radio 4 this week, with excellent comedy writer & director Charlie Dinkin. We talked to host Adam Shaw all about the finances of surviving as a comedian. It’s not particularly funny, but have a listen if you need some tips on how to tell gags and pay the bills: […]
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 got to guest again on the very fun Totally Unprepared Politics Show podcast hosted by Jack and Ada. This time I was unprepared on Brexit, Syria, diplomatic immunity and birds who can sing 2Pac tunes. Have a listen:
As well as my usual ParPolBro podcast, I’m pleased to be the new host of Nesta UK’s Future Curious podcast, first episode out next week. It’s a lot less comedy than PPB, but does have a lot of fascinating chats about social innovations and some genuinely positive future outlooks, which makes a nice change. Have […]
If you’d like to hear me wang on about how much I hate Boris Johnson on someone’s else podcast rather than my own for once, I guested on the excellent Desert Island Dicks podcast. It was a lot of fun to record. Have a listen here:
The kids politics show I do with Tatton Spiller from Simple Politics now has it’s own mini-website, thanks to our excellent director and producer Daniel Bye. Do take a look: https://www.politicsforkids.co.uk/
I said some stuff in this lovely article about making kids laugh, where I’m alongside (my hero) Hey Duggee creator Grant Orchard, and the wonderful Professor Sophie Scott, which is very exciting: https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/entry/how-to-make-any-child-laugh_uk_5d8a2957e4b0d2694655022e
I answered a few random questions for the British Comedy Guide. Have a read here: https://www.comedy.co.uk/live/random8/tiernan_douieb/
So I doing a live Partly Political Broadcast podcast on October 29th because apparently there might be something going on that week. It’s at the lovely 2Northdown in Kings Cross and who knows what I’ll be talking about but there’ll be comedy and serious guests and there will be a bar so hopefully we’ll at […]
I wrote a very tiny short story based on a random pic they sent me for https://thestoryseed.co.uk It’ll be up on their site later but for now, its on their instagram right here if you fancy a read: https://www.instagram.com/p/B1aruExBw01/?utm_source=ig_web_button_share_sheet
Hello. I am doing two shows at the Camden Fringe this Sunday and Monday. It will be a whole hour, or nearly a whole hour of new jokes, or mostly new jokes with a handful of old jokes in where still relevant. Please come. Shouting at an empty room isn’t that fun. Thanks. https://camdenfringe.com/show.php?acts_id=2677
I spoke to Nathan Good for far too long about what I think are the 10 best children’s books that I can read to my daughter without going completely spare. Do have a listen: My Top Ten… podcast
Yes another podcast, but this time, it’s a bit different to the usually sweary, poltical, ranty ones I normally do. This one is for everyone aged 6-99 as its the Comedy Club 4 Kids podcast ‘Radio Nonsense’. If you have kids please get them to listen to the trailer and send in their suggestions as […]
Here’s the first of some occasional blogs I’m doing for Working Dads. Have a read, especially if you’re a dad who’s working.* * Not necessarily right now. It’s quite late. https://www.workingdads.co.uk/dad-self-employed-funny-business/
So I’m not doing the Edinburgh Fringe this year on account of it costing more than a funeral in order to die far more times, so instead I’m doing two dates at the lovely Camden Fringe instead on the 4th and 5th of August at the Camden Comedy Club. If you happen to be in […]
I was the guest on Akin Omobitan’s podcast ‘It Dies Here’, in which you tell of an embarrassing regret and try to sort of absolve yourself from it, which I didn’t manage. Anyway, it was a lot of fun to do and you can have a listen on any of the podcast platforms or on […]
I contributed to this British Comedy Guide piece where comedians guess what might happen in Avengers: Endgame. (This article is spoiler free, but not nonsense free). https://www.comedy.co.uk/features/rogue_pun/avengers_endgame_guestimates/
If you watch the excellent Frankie Boyle’s New World Order on BBC2, which you should, then you probably didn’t remotely notice my name pop up on the credits because you’ll likely have turned over by then. But hopefully you did stick around as I’m chuffed to have writing credits on two episodes so far as […]
The excellent Dad Blog UK aka John Adams asked me some questions about dadding and gigging and I mostly talked about how tired I am. Have a read: Balancing family and life as a stand up comedian: Q&A with Tiernan Douieb
And yet another podcast I’m on this week. This time its The Drink podcast, hosted by the excellent Hannah Dunleavy and we spoke about, yes correct, drinking and lots of other things too. Have a listen here:
I got to be on this week’s Any Stupid Questions, hosted by the very funny Danielle Ward and also starring the brilliant Kemah Bob as we asked councillor Tim Roca just what on earth councillors do.
