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.
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!
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.Read more ›
