Few stand-up comedy DVDs really capture the energy of the comic. This was especially a challenge with Irish comedian Tommy Tiernan. This DVD has to be one of the best filming jobs ever.

Tiernan is in fine shape with only one lull near the end of the show. In many ways, this show is a celebration of the twisted and sometimes dark human experience, especially the Irish version of it. This stand-up comic has the ability to never really be negative while still pointing out flaws and imperfections

If you like Tiernan and have seen him live, you will certainly not be disappointed. If you are unfamiliar with this comic, it really is worth your dollars.

One of my favorite things in the whole world!
How can it be that I laugh again and again!? But I do! The story of the funeral of his friend is so poignant and hilarious that I catch myself laughing and crying all at the same time every time!
The line btw comedy and tragedy is precarious if we are truthful!
Love it!

Simply put he is hilarious. His style of comedy takes you on a journey. He tells a story with 8-12 minute blocks and your laughing the whole way through. He talks about life and personal experiences which makes things a whole lot more relatable and humorus. Have watched it several times with different friends with different types of humor and everytime they all life, including myself even though I have seen it enough to recite verbatum. Plus he has an irish accent, what more could you ask for?

This was one of the funniest stand up routines I have seen in awhile. I saw the edited version on Comedy Central and had to buy it. There was a lot of bleeped out language in the version on tv and they skipped the raunchiest parts, but the best parts were the same. I have watched it more than once. Friends I made watch it, said I should not have built it up because then it would be disappointing, but within five minutes they were laughing out loud. Now, it helps that my husband is from Dublin so I know the sense of humor, but Tiernan's timing is great! He is dead on in his description of some of the differences between Americans and our friends across the pond. If you like stand up that does not play to the lowest element in this country, check it out! It's not Jon Stewart but then again, he is not Irish.

This is one of the funniest comedy stand-up DVDs. We watch all the Comedy Central stand-up routines and this one is a little darker than most of those. I have watched this edited and the unedited version is simply brilliant. It might be considered a little raunchy for some, but that doesn't offend me in the least so I found it extremely funny and enjoyable. This one is worth the purchase for your collection and you won't feel this is just like all the other ones in your collection.

I hope to see more of him! I usually do not laugh at comedians, so when I find one that really cracks me up I want to share with everyone. Tommy is the guy to share with everyone; I laughed until I hurt. I don't know what he's on, but he is really on top of his game!!!

Recieved this recent DVD as a Christmas gift and immediately popped into the big screen. AMAZING!! I had already seen much of his work on youtube but the live performance on a regular stage makes a huge difference.

To start, Tiernan is best known for his signature manic movements and soaring rhetoric. A small club, or worse, a grainy, tiny youtube cut cannot do justice to this crazy Irish comedian. The camera work here zooms this guy right into your eyeballs but never gets in the way. No artsy digi-tricks here, just a hugely intense Tommy Tiernan getting right up in your face with a one-two punch line. This guy must collapse at the end of this show after ninety solid minutes of swooping, hollering, stalking, and laughing without a moment's rest.

He's an Irish comic in the way a Pit Bull is a dog. You don't dare take your eyes off this guy especially as his ears go back and a growl rolls in. Americans like to say, "nice doggie" to hostile looking animals and a fairly spectacular example of this occurs when he begins the wind up for the next hairy drop into the hyperkinetic abyss of helpless hilarity.

He starts on the many incidences of demographic class oppression, for example, the Jews during the Holocaust. The audience realizes that this will be a darker bit and laughs easily waiting for the next level of windup. Then he brings up the black slaves. Again, an easy laugh. We're so used to acknowledging that others are going to brain us forever for having anything to do with this horrendous worldwide practice that we simply don't make the emotional connection anymore.

It is a stunning moment just after this laugh when Tiernan simply stops and stares. Is this a pause for dramatic emphasis? Okay.
