It never really bothered me that I'd never met my mum.
It never occurred to me I needed to meet her to 'find out who I was', as it didn't seem likely I'd discover I was someone different to who I thought I was. Could it turn out I was three stone lighter than I thought, or I spoke Italian or supported Arsenal or had a fear of Liquorice Allsorts?

With Craig Campbell’s record Everest base camp show looming (www.standuponeverest.co.uk) beyond his hip-reshaping operation and a winter of snowboarding comedy shows, the challenge of keeping the wounded Moose’s chin up ensures ‘Don’t Look Down’ to be his most appropriately titled show yet!

Tommy Tiernan brings his new show ‘Out of the Whirlwind’ to Exeter Corn Exchange on Friday 12 February.
Tommy Tiernan is now in his 20th year as a stand-up comedian having won every award going, including stand-up comedy’s big prize the Perrier Award at Edinburgh Festival, and is still as passionate as ever about story-telling and comedy.
He has been voted ‘Ireland’s Funniest Living Person’, he appeared on Father Ted as well as the Late Show with David Letterman in the USA and set the Guinness World Record for a stand-up show with a staggering 36 hours and 15 minutes.
Birth & Death & Here & Now is about exactly those things; The moment of birth, the moment of death and the moment that is happening right now. The show explores each moment with a joyful mix of childish freedom and the hindsight of life experience, drawing on the real feelings and experiences of Adam and the people present in the room with him.
We meet ourselves in baby form, we are confronted by one of the many possible manifestations of death and we are thrown into the NOW with Adam as he seeks to ride the moment that we are all living together.
