“Tiernan boasts a magnificent curl in her lip and snarl in her voice.” SUNDAY TIMES
“Tiernan has a uniquely oblique angle on the word, and her routines have a touch of whimsy while grounded in astute observation. It means her set sounds fresh and original, without being so wilfully strange it will alienate all but the most dedicated followers.” CHORTLE
