Back on the road again Tommy Tiernan has a new show, Paddy Crazy Horse. He rants and raves, he dances and acts. He tries to be very silly and very serious at the same time.
He mixes a love of comic rebellion and a refusal to be conscripted into a rational view of the world with a deep love for talking and the poetry of everyday speech. Using high theatricality and lots of sweary language, this is a fast paced and exuberant celebration of everything that’s wild, wrong and wonderful about being alive right here, right now. It is by turns clever and then really stupid.
Tommy Tiernan’s legendary record-breaking ticket sales extend across the world. The Star of Channel 4’s hit show Derry Girls and Live at the Apollo (BBC) writes a weekly newspaper column for the Sunday Independent and hosts his own improvised chat show on Ireland’s RTE 1
“There is a spirituality to Tiernan that makes him stand out. The church’s loss is comedy’s gain…Imperious” The Irish Independent
“Emphatic comic power” The Guardian

Alexandra Palace is a charity, run for the benefit of everyone. Our Park, Palace and spectacular events have been enriching lives since 1863, but the coronavirus pandemic has hit us hard. To be blunt, we are looking at a £1m shortfall this year and the same again next year. We know this time has been hard on many people but, if you can afford it, your support will help us get through this crisis.
