LAST WEEK, IRISH viewers absolutely fell in love with The Tommy Tiernan Show. The premise of the show is simple: neither Tommy nor the audience know who the guest is going to be until they walk out on stage.
What ensues is a delightful, unpredictable hour of telly.
Last night, the second episode of the show aired, but did it manage to live up to the first episode? In a word, yes.
No difficult second album syndrome here
Last night’s guests included one Ray D’Arcy…
Tiernan chatted to D’Arcy about the thorny issues of balance within RTÉ and, er, working with your spouse.
Next up, he chatted to the Crimmins Triplets, three sisters from Dundalk who work as models
They describe themselves as the “world’s most identical triplets”.
And with good reason.
Well, we did say the show was unpredictable
And of course he forced them to play musical chairs so he could see if he could tell them apart
As is mandatory when you’re confronted with twins or triplets.
Finally, Tiernan was joined by visual effects supervisor Richie Baneham, who won an Academy Award for his work on Avatar
Ray D’Arcy, triplets and an Oscar winner. Well now.
Richie was suitably modest about his work…
Ah, classic Irishman.
After the show, people took to Twitter to praise Tiernan for another quality show with many praising his interviewing skills and spontaneity
Sure, isn’t it worth the television licence all the same?
