Tommy Tiernan releases a new DVD called Crooked Man
From my inbox to your screens – I’ve just been emailed about Tommy Tiernan’s new DVD, Crooked Man. Set to launch next month on Friday 4 November, it’s probably going to be a best seller, in the way that Loose, Cracked and Jokerman have before.
Details from the press release:
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.
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 premiere at The Cork Film Festival on Monday November 7th at 7.30pm.
