FACT OF LIFE! NEW TOMMY TIERNAN TV SHOW

New Year Cheer! THE TOMMY TIERNAN TV SHOW kicks off on January 5th on RTÉ One

No stranger to television chat shows, Tommy Tiernan has performed and been a guest on some of the biggest and most established ones in the world. With a number of US appearances at The Ed Sullivan Theatre for The David Letterman Show, Tiernan cut his chat show teeth on The Late, Late Show almost 20 years ago, with a performance that helped catapult his stand-up career. Since then he’s starred in sitcoms for Channel 4, fronted his own BBC and RTÉ series and hosted a number of radio series.

Watch him here discussing the Facts of Life with ex Late Late Show host Pat Kenny on RTE.

For a long time Tommy has wanted to host his own TV chat show – one with an edge that re-invigorates the format. For Tiernan the element of surprise is key to the success of such a show: “One of the great things about the old Late Late Show was not knowing who the guests were until they appeared on screen, it kept the whole thing lively, so I just thought, well how would it be if the host didn’t know who they were until they walked out either. Doing it in front of a live audience is the key for me, it all seems like good unpredictable fun.”

Recorded in front of a live audience, in the very studio where Tommy made his television debut with Gay Byrne all those years ago, The Tommy Tiernan Show incorporates stand-up, live music, sketches…and great chat with those surprise guests!

The  6 part series broadcast at 10.15pm on RTÉ One from Thursday 5th January. Meanwhile the Tommy T Live roadshow is at a venue new you in 2017. See dates below.
