Tommy Tiernan New DVD Filming at City Limits Cork.
As one rave review after another came in from Tommyâ€™s recent Crooked Man
it became obvious that it was time to capture this moment in
Tommyâ€™s career where most feel he is at his finest.
As put by one reviewer recently
â€œThe genius that we know and love, an hour and a
half of pure lunacy, this is Tiernan at his best. â€�
However we didnâ€™t want to follow that same old format
of shooting a big thousand seater theatre, bright lights, big crowd.
We wanted to do something more interesting,
more true to the art of stand up, something different.....
On Thursday July 28th 2011, Tommy performed two shows at the
infamous home of real stand up in Ireland and a place that plays
an integral part in the history of Tommyâ€™s career,
City Limits Comedy Club in Cork.
Flying in from the UK with his crew is the man with the vision
for this project British director, comedian, actor
and writer best known for his role as Maurice Moss
in The IT Crowd, Richard Ayoade.
His writing and directing film debut â€œSubmarineâ€�
has been the independent film of the summer with
the LA Times deciding that â€œRichard Ayoade captures the uncapturableâ€�
His work with the Arctic Monkeys has been
considered among critics original, refreshing , stylish and exciting.
To say that we are excited about the partnership between these two great artists
and visionaries and what might happen on this dvd is an understatement.
The DVD will be released in November of this year.
