Tommy Tiernan (From The Patreon Archive) - Live at the Vodafone Comedy Festival: Episode 97

July 31, 2020

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.

Marion McKeone takes us inside the sordid world of Jeffrey Epstein and asks the question, “what do we know for sure about Donald Trump's history and relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell”. How much does she know? How much did the President know about the sex trafficking ring she presided over. 

 

In the mailbag section, Jarlath asks Marion to break down in simple terms the electoral college system, the importance of the swing states and the likelihood of Michelle Obama throwing her hat into the ring.  And finally her sobering thoughts on Kanye's rally - this is an update from America that you simply don't want to miss.

Marion details the terrifying realities of the accounts of Barack Obama, Joe Biden, Kanye West and Elon Musk being hacked.
