Tommy Tiernan is, without a doubt, Ireland's most successful comedian and in the first instalment of this very special two-part interview of an Irishman Abroad he sits down with Jarlath in front of a live audience at the Vodafone Comedy Carnival to discuss his life and career. In what is possibly one of the most revealing and personal interviews with Tommy, he opens up to Jarlath about his years of self-loathing, huge regrets and the loneliness that he feels in places where he is unknown.
Tommy also speaks about the media's ruling in Ireland, finding wisdom in laziness, his stubborn confidence, feeling trapped financially and why he believes improvisational comedy is his true calling.
