The Irish comedian Eleanor Tiernan played Always Be Comedy in London in 2016. Her set had some wonderful stories such as despite being a social worker, her mother’s inability to see any of her own failings. Tiernan was whimsical, engaging, funny and thoroughly entertaining.
I saw comedian Tiernan perform at Always Be Comedy in January 2018. With her wonderful Irish accent, I found Tiernan’s act to be invigoratingly eccentric as she recounted hilarious stories on stage.
I saw her again as a guest at the Stand Up Against Alzheimer’s benefit at The Comedy Store, London in June 2019. Her material on the whimsy of the everyday was strong and her routine is about advancements in hand-dryer technology was inspired.
In August 2020, when Tiernan appeared for Always Be Comedy Online and as a guest on #SaveLiveComedy Show 1 online from The Clapham Grand where her routines were filled with dry, witty punchlines was based around her sharing with others her sexual orientation. It was done with such subtle honesty that she endeared herself to the online crowd.
Tiernan was informal with the audience who warmed to her and found her extremely funny.
