Who Is Tiernan Douieb?


Tiernan (In Real Life)

Tiernan’s done the comedy thing for ages now. His comedy is often about worldly political happenings in the friendliest and funniest manner possible. This is mainly because he got old and is now angry about everything but has a stupid bearded child face so can’t be that angry.

This is balanced by his stand-up for children and families which is mostly about bogies and superheroes. He is constantly on Twitter, writes and hosts the Partly Political Broadcast podcast, co-runs the successful Comedy Club 4 Kids and has performed and written several solo shows which have all done alright really. Tiernan regularly performs all over the world even though he really likes being at home eating sandwiches.

Oh and he once saw a really fat squirrel eating a Cornetto like a human would. He’s never really got over that.
