Having received rave reviews for the Crooked Man Tour, which saw Tommy performing sell out dates across Canada, The UK, Australia, New Zealand, (“The genius that we know and love, an hour and a half of pure lunacy, this is Tiernan at his best”); it was decided to capture this particular moment in comedy on film. A mean feat indeed!
Richard Ayoade (Writer and Director of “Submarine”, who also plays Maurice Moss in C4’s The IT Crowd) undertook the challenge. It took eight motion film cameras to capture the live show, with all its vigor and verve intact. The DVD was shot last July 2011, over one night, in Cork’s City Limits Comedy Club; Tommy’s early and much loved stomping ground, and infamous home of raw stand up in Ireland.
We see Tommy delving into themes with his trademark lunacy, devouring ideas and reproducing them with unparalleled hilarity. “Tiernan is a mischief-maker par excellence …his ability to whisk a real-life anecdote into the realms of the surreal remains unsurpassed”– The Times
Tommy has smashed sales records with his previous DVDs, with Cracked: Live at Vicar Street’ shooting to number 1 in the 1st week of release and reaching four times platinum status, ‘Loose’ going straight to number 1 and reaching eight times platinum status, and‘Jokerman: Tommy Tiernan in America’ reaching quadruple platinum status and nominated for an IFTA award.
Crooked Man is set to push Tommy’s star further into ascendance as it captures the comedian at the pinnacle of his career. Recent defining television performances in the UK have proved testament to this, namely; Live At the Apollo, Micheal Mac Intyre’s Comedy Roadshow, Laughs In The Park with Eddie Izzard & Ross Noble andDave’s One Night Stand.
‘It might seem a lazy thing to say about an Irish comedian, but Tiernan is a rightful heir to Dave Allen, addressing every big issue with a refreshing irrelevance. Poot, poot!’ Steve Bennet – Chortle
