Gigging since 2003 after learning his trade on Dr Oliver Double's stand-up course at the University of Kent, Tiernan is quickly becoming known as a top MC and rising star on the circuit.
With his fast paced, energetic style, stupidly unpronounceable name and comedy topics ranging from dancing bears, being diabetic, and sometimes Lionel Ritchie, Tiernan is now gigging all over the UK. This includes working for clubs and promoters such as Off The Kerb, Avalon, The Comedy Store, Comedy Café, The Comedy Company and Jongluers. He also recently performed in the Jestival Comedy Tent in its first year at Bestival and hosted the Bestival Launch party at the Bloomsbury Ballrooms.
Tiernan co-starred and wrote the dark comedy sketch show 'Tea and Cake' with Lauren Shearing, at the Edinburgh Festival 07. Tiernan and Lauren worked together on the much heralded Home Choice TV show 'Gagging 4 it' and finally brought their work together for a debut hour long show. 'Tea and Cake' received solid great reviews, being described as 'demonically dark, in the same breed as Chris Morris' (National Student Review). The pair can soon be seen as presenters on the brand new Orange Digital TV network and will be bringing their sketches back to the fringe next year.
