    I'm enjoying it!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,259 ✭✭✭donkeykong5


    I'm not watching this..But I'm enjoying the thread.

    Tiernan is the unfunniest comedian ever.

    I can't wait to catch this train wreck on RTE player when I finish work.

    Just sold out something like 20 shows in vicar Street alone.

    Surely after 20 years people would realise you're not funny.
    He's better than al porter. Anyday.

    I wonder does he do much prep for his interviews, trouble is he's a bit down beat, too relaxed that it doesn't flow

    Only morons find him funny and to be fair the country is full of em.

    Tiernan is scraping the bottom of the barrel bad comedian. Poor observations, shouty ranty absolutely pointless rambling you'll ever see.

    A guy absolutely stealing his living.

    I wouldn't cross the road to see Russell, he is a seriously unfunny comedian.

    It's essentially the same thing.


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,259 ✭✭✭donkeykong5


    Yeah. 9.35 pm.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,585 ✭✭✭✭Lady Chatterton


    I love that Christy 'signs' all his songs ;)


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,089 ✭✭✭mada999


    i like that Aslan tune... he's got a great voice... when singing rock tunes and not ava maria!


  • Registered Users Posts: 7,086 ✭✭✭the whole year inn


    As a first show that could have been a train wreck ,I thought it was decent.Watch next week as well.

    Following comments on this here and on Twitter. Twitter generally speaking loves the show and he's not getting much love here.

    Can't blame Tiernan for the guests but I do think he's doing a good job. It will be interesting to see how the show evolves. I think they could reduce the number of guests to allow for deeper interviews.

    They could also drop the gimmick of it being "improvised interviews". It's a chat show with Tommy Tiernan. If his skills continue to hold up he doesn't need a gimmick to carry it.

    Is his cancer terminal?

    Yep, think it's only a matter of time, judging by what he says. Seems like a decent man.


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,585 ✭✭✭✭Lady Chatterton


    Is his cancer terminal?
    Yes, but it's a form of cancer that can be kept under control for years.

    Some artists should get together and do a big send off gig to raise money so his family have their house morgage and that sorted.


  • Registered Users Posts: 908 ✭✭✭coastwatch


    He could be a good host, but this format doesn't work....
    " and my next guest is... "
    "and who are you and what do you do?"

    Keep it simple with chat shows eg. Parkinson

    Tom Dunne organised a big 'Gig for Christy' about two years ago.

    Linda Martin and Billy round 2 would be good :p

    Thought that was pretty good. Much better than the late late anyway.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 4,133 ✭✭✭Shurimgreat


    Enjoyable.

    What I like most about it is, it isn't Tubridy or Darcy reading 9 or 10 questions from cards, then reading from a cue.

    Tiernan's show is how a talk show should be, unscripted and off the cuff.

    Tommy's a natural at this. I expect RTE to cancel it after one series however as they usually do that with anything half decent or which threatens the LLS.
