Cracking stand up comedy for everyone over the age of 6 which is mostly about bogies and superheroes and annoying siblings… All the best of comedy but without the rude bits.
Suitable for ages 6+
Tiernan’s done the comedy thing for ages and ages now. Since his early days treading the boards, his comedy has taken on a more satirical edge opting to complain about worldly political happenings in the friendliest and funniest manner possible.
This is balanced by his stand-up for children and families which is mostly about bogies and superheroes.

18th-century portraits creating a fantastical visual story of Waddesdon.
