Mind Fringes

I’ve now been home from the Edinburgh Fringe for 3 days, and I’m still in the usual need for recovery. Yesterday I accidentally napped for 3 hours without meaning to. Does that still fit into nap criteria? 3 hours doesn’t feel long enough for a sleep but it’s definitely way more than a nap. Is […]

The Quietus Radio Day – September 1st

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

Shopkeepers in Leith

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

Started Blogging Again…

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’ https://www.tiernandouieb.co.uk/2017/08/14-years-a-clown/

14 Years A Clown

14 Years A Clown

It occurred to me while tucking into some toast off the A1 near Berwick on Tweed, that I’ve been doing stand-up comedy for 14 years this year. Not sure why it hit me at that moment but it was probably a combination of me feeling relief that I was finally on my way home from […]

Things I Learned From This Year’s EdFringe

Right, that’s another Edinburgh Fringe over with. Here’s a little post I did about it:

4 star review in Three Weeks

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 […]

Another Edinburgh Fringe Q & A!

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

More EdFringe Q&A’s….

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
