In Celtic mythology, a Stray Sod was an enchanted piece of grass that, if stepped on, would leave a person feeling disorientated and lost, even in familiar surroundings. It’s also said that wearing an item of clothing inside out would break the spell and allow the person to find their way again.

'Stray Sod' also happens to be the title of Irish comedian Tommy Tiernan's latest show. A metaphor for how we as humans have somehow lost our spirits, identity and 'inner lunatic' in these broke and bat shit-crazy times we currently find ourselves living in.

But don't worry, because Tommy's here with a vision for getting us back on track. Joyful, uplifting, inspirational and breathtakingly funny, Tommy’s latest show doesn’t have all the answers, but one thing's for sure: no one will have to leave the show with their clothes on inside out!

A fearless force of energy, Tiernan is one of the few comics to take his audience on a genuine emotional journey elevating the soul through rich, honest laughs. Tiernan has an instinctive way of crafting words to bring his anecdotes to vivid life and make the jokes truly resonate. Standing at 5ft 9 inches tall in his socks and weighing in at 78kg, this Gemini contrarian is back with his irreverent mix of the wholesome and the totally inappropriate. Performing like a homeless preacher high on the wine of laughter, Tiernan promises both the sacred and the profane wrapped up in a spirit of recklessness.

“When the Irish comedian Tommy Tiernan first walks - no, bounds - to the microphone, he is a tornado that lasts the night” - Sydney Morning Herald

Tiernan’s shows are high intensity, high octane, a no holds barred roller coaster ride as Tommy continues his constant interrogation of the big ideas - Sex, Religion, Family through the lens of his quirks, personal demons and sense of outrage.

Tommy has the highest selling DVD sales in Ireland and is second only to U2 when it comes to live performance ticket sales there. His DVD “Cracked: Live At Vicar Street” went straight to #1 in the week it was released and has reached four times Platinum Status. “Loose” also went straight to #1 and reached eight times Platinum Status while “Jokerman: Tommy Tiernan in America” and “Ok Baby” also went to number 1.

“Tiernan is another bright, original and refreshingly funny import” - New York Times

His observations about life are offbeat and thoughtful but most importantly, he's a tremendous storyteller. He will challenge, he will engage and he will definitely entertain.

To spend time in this man’s company is an unmissable treat.
